The necktie:
The necktie (cravat) originates from Croatia. The traditional outfit of these Croats aroused interest on account of the unusual and picturesque scarves distinctively tied about their necks. Later on, during the reign of Louis XIV, the Croatian scarf was accepted in France, above all in court, where military ornaments were much admired. The fashionable expression, ’a la croate’, soon evolved into a new French word, which still exists today: la cravate.
Diocletian :
The Roman emperor Diocletian built a palace in Dalmatia in 305 A.D., which became the foundation of today’s city of Split, one of Croatia’s six monuments under UNESCO protection.
The recipe of this authentic Zadar liqueur was created at the beginning of the 16th century by pharmacists working in the peace and quiet of Zadar's Dominican monastery. The liqueur was later to be called MARASCHINO as it is produced from the essence of the ripe fruit of the Dalmatian Marasca sour cherry and the leaves of its younger branches.
The oysters of Ston :
Research has shown that oysters have been farmed in the Ston area from Roman times. Just about every crowned head in Europe knew of the oysters of Ston.
