Croatian Culture

Spending two weeks to travel Croatia is just enough time to immerse yourself in the culture by exposing you to its way of life and rich history. According to a recent major census, a vast amount of the citizens, around 90 percent, recognize themselves as Catholic. Each village and town has a patron saint and celebrates a feast day with processions and the locals take the day off from work. Even if you are not Catholic, being part of such a celebration is always a magical experience.
