Croatia - Traditions and Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Culture, art, and many traditions of Croatia were influenced by the different ethnicities and backgrounds of its people. For example, the coastal areas were always greatly influenced by Italy and Italian art, since these areas of the country were once a part of the Roman Empire. Other areas in the country's inland experienced the influence of the neighboring countries, such as Austria and Hungary.
 
2     That influence can be found in Croatia almost everywhere--in the architecture, language, and religion. Many cities and towns of Croatia, including Zagreb, the country's capital, Dubrovnik, Rovinj, Split, and others, feature a great mix of architectural styles from the ruins of ancient Roman palaces to medieval castles, Goth churches, and modern eclectic buildings. One of the districts in Dubrovnik--Stari Grad (Old Town)--is one such place and is considered by many as one of the most beautiful towns in Croatia.
 
3     The majority of people in Croatia are Croatian, but there are several smaller groups of different origins such as Serbs, Bosnians, Slovenes, Hungarians, and others. Croatians are overwhelmingly Roman Catholic, while almost all Serbs--the largest of those smaller groups--are Eastern Orthodox. There are also some Muslim, Protestant, and Jewish communities in Croatia.
