Europe 7: Croatia

Europe  7: Croatia

Croatia, a picturesque country along the Adriatic coast, has reopened its attractions to the world after a hard-won independence. Here we travel to the southern coast to explore the port city of Dubrovnik, known as "the Pearl of the Adriatic"; it is a 1,000-year-old medieval walled city and an architectural wonder of Central Europe. The Rectors's Palace, once the government seat in the 15th century, today is a museum with Baroque paintings and historic treasures. Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and is located on the slopes of Medvednica Mountain along the banks of the Sava River; it is a city of museums, art galleries, folk festivals, and churches, such as the Cathedral of St. Stephen. Its main square, Jelacic Square, in the heart of the city was named after the Croatian hero, Ban Josip Jelacic, who defeated the Hungarians in 1848. Kamenita vrata is the 13th-century Stone Gate with a painting of the Virgin Mary, which miraculously escaped the great fire of 1731. Our last visit is to the Lipica stables, started in the 1580s by the Austrian Archduke Karl and today known as the home of the world famous Lipizzaner horses. 02/09DE IJSCA 15 min.
