Guide > Culture and history of Croatia

Like many Western European countries, Croatia was founded on the ruins of the Roman Empire. Croatia is not unique only because of its pure and crystal blue sea but also because of its cultural traditions that count over a thousand years. It is believed that Croata are Slavic peoples who migrated from Ukraine and settled in today's area during the 6th century.

Croatia borders with Hungary in the northeast, Slovenia in the northwest, Serbia in the East, Montenegro in the southeast and Bosnia and Herzegovina and the south. The Adriatic Sea is flooding the coast of Croatia. Jadran is considered to be the cradle of ancient civilizations in this area.
