The Future

Mervyn Richardson


8.1CULTURE

Croatia can look forward to a progressive future.

It is a land where Croatian culture is an integral part of Western European culture, where four cultures meet: West meets East, and Central Europe meets the Mediterranean South.

Ancient Rome left its indelible mark on Pula (a perfectly preserved amphitheatre, the Sergian triumphant arch and Augustus temple); and Split (the monumental Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, built in the 4th century, was transformed into a medieval town); examples of early Byzantine art (6th century includes the mosaics of the Euphraseus Basilica in Poreć, which have been compared to those in Ravenna), and early Romanesque art has left its mark in Zadar (the second church of St. Donat, one of the largest 9th century churches in Europe, which can be compared with the chapel of Charlemagne in Aachen). Krk, Rab and Trogir (with its cathedral and portal by the master sculptor Radovan in 1240) are Romanesque; Pazin, Zagreb and Ston are Gothic.

Split and Dubrovnik are included in the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage.

During the summer months the historical locations come alive again as stages for traditional (international) festivals attracting domestic and foreign tourists to the ancient palaces and squares: the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, the Pula Film Festival, the Split Summer Festival, the Zadar music evenings, the Zagreb Evenings at Grič, the Varaždin Baroque nights, etc.
