The Museum of Cultural History at the University of Oslo i Norway after conducting excavations in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. archaeological team found the very first traces of an Illyrian trading post that is more han two thousand years old.
The Illyrians, Albanians were an ancient people who lived by hunting, fishing and agriculture. They were known as warriors.They fight Greek colonists and Roman occupants,The archaeological finds show that the Illyrians also had peaceful trade connections with the Romans.
“The find is unique in a European perspective. We have concluded that Desilo, was the place is called, was an important trading post of great significance for contact between the Illyrians and the Romans,” Marina Prusac tells the research magazine Apollon at University of Oslo.
Surprisingly large finds have been made in a short period of time. The archaeologists have discovered the ruins of a Illirian’s settlement in Kosovo Albania, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina the remains of a harbour that probably functioned as a trading post, as well as many sunken boats, fully-laden with wine pitchers – so-called amphorae – from the first century B.C.
Croatia’s animal life flourishes in the unspoiled conditions. The stars of the park are bears and wolves, but there are also deer, boar, rabbits, foxes and badgers. There are over 120 different species of bird such as hawks, owls, cuckoos, thrushes, starlings, kingfishers, wild ducks and herons. You might also occasionally see black storks and ospreys. Flocks of butterflies flutter throughout the park.
Croatia is attracting a wide range of visitors, Croatian has developed and maintained an infrastructure suitable for both adventurers and guests seeking a certain level of comfort.
Croatia systematically and permanently strive to raise the price/quality ratio to a higher level, at the same time complying with the postulates of sustainable development and producing a harmonious satisfaction for both the guest/service user and the host/service provider.
Such development, tailored to the needs of Croatian citizens and foreign guests, aims for the domicile population to participate in improvement of their own living standard and preservation of the national identity. In our case, this means we first used the potentials utilizing our original comparative advantages. We are now turning to potentials that could be valued in terms of tourism, but start the race without an explicit comparative advantage.
Croatia is permanently improving the quality of its facilities on the one hand and the transport infrastructure on the other hand, Croatia still tries to offer satisfaction and experiences even for the most demanding ones. This is confirmed by what have become traditional arrivals of royal and princely families, musicians, painters and members of powerful business dynasties on the Adriatic coast in summer months.
Croatia is also a great natural and historical stage for many unique festivals, exhibitions, concerts and events such as the Dubrovnik Summer Games, Split Summer, Rab Fjera, Pula and Motovun Film Festivals, or the Špancirfest in Varaždin.
As a true Karst region, Croatia is full of caves. The most famous and most magical are the Modra Špilja [Blue cave] on Biševo and the Zmajeva Špilja [Dragons cave] on the island of Brač. The caves in Papuk and in the Kordun, Lika, Dalmatia and Zagorje regions are open to visitors who have no experience and can enjoy the various forms of the stalactites and stalagmites. The most attractive caves are found in Istria, Gorski kotar and on Medvednica and for real lovers of the underground we recommend Veternica near Zagreb, Cerovačke spilje [Cerovac cave] near Gračac and Lukina jama [Lukina cave] on Velebit.
