Croatia – Culture
The culture of Croatia has been influenced over time by the diverse history of the area. Croats show a strong sense of national pride after centuries of conflict. The literary tradition of Croatia dates back to about 1100, and since then, novels and poetry have been an essential part of Croatian culture. Other art forms, including sculpture, architecture, painting, and photography, are integral parts of the nation’s culture. Croatia has a predominantly Roman Catholic population, and the country observes Catholic holidays.
