The dog is the symbol of the country and hardly see them any more. The name derives from the Dalmaete, an Illyrian tribe that settled here in 1st century BC.
A proud culture that has endured many trials and trivulations over 2000 years. For the first time in recent decades, Croatia is a country that controls itself. That sect settled here in around 700 AD, but the area has been under control of Illyrians, Romans, Ostagoths, Greeks, Lombards, and lately Austria, and Germany, and was a part of the Yugoslavia composite of many cultures and ethnicity
The coast has a beautiful setting, and the color of the water is deep blue to green in some areas. It all looks clean and pristine. The attraction for many tourists is to partake the water activities and boat rides to the islands. There are 165 main islands, and hundreds of smaller ones surrounding the coast area.
- Pros:Weather and scenery are great
- Cons:Long trip end to end, and roads are rough; winding
- In a nutshell:A wonderful place to enjoy the sun and see historic monuments
