Transcript of Croatia

Croatia is also known for its wonderful wine selection. Croatia, Zagreb By Duncan McAloon in Croatia is Known for its Beautiful Islands, to start off, I think this is the best place of Croatia, Croatia is located in southern Europe The Island of Hvar, is the oldest and largest in Croatia. T The island of Brijuni, is exclusive to military purpose only, it is said to be the most beautiful through out Croatia. The president has a summer house here. Plitvica Lakes are known to be the most natural and beautiful seen in Southern Europe... (According to Croatians :D) While I was in Croatia, Croatia joined N.A.T.O The number of people in Zagreb,the capital, is around 783,000,out of Croatia's total population of approximately 4,500,000. Ivo Josipović, is the current president of The Republic of Croatia. Croatians are very proud of their flag. They have a very colorful flag with great meaning, and a crest that you see daily in Croatia, around the city. And flag... In croatia there is a giant Cathdral called the Cathedral of St. Mary, Croatia's population is 97% Roman Catholic so this is a very special cathedral to the Croatians. It was destroyed during the earthquake in the mid 1800's and is just now being restored. There is another big church named The Church of Saint Mark. While in Croatia many people go to the Sq. of Ban Jelicic daily due to its fascinating activities.
The square has a statue of Ban Jelicic. The Sq But this is just Zagreb, Zagreb is the first biggest city in Croatia with the second being Split next to the coast, this city is the main tourist attraction because of the fantastic things to see... In Split you can see Diocletian's Palace. Diocletian was a Roman ruler that liked Croatia so much he built a palace. Sljeme the largest "Mountain" (Hill) in Zagreb, held the European skiing Semi finals in 2009. It is open to skiers during the winter.. Tito's House is in Croatia as well.... Josip Broz Tito was a Yugoslav revolutionary and statesman. He was Secretary-General of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia, and went on to lead the World War II Yugoslav guerrilla movement, the Yugoslav Partisans. Tito is known for the parrot he had. This parrot is still living, and talking. Croatias, 3 years ive lived here is longest ive ever lived anywhere in my whole life. Medvedgrad meaning the City of Bears is ontop of the Sljeme mountain,it was a short distance from my old house and known by locals all young men must scale the walls to live in Croatia at some point in their lives... I scaled it four times. It is ontop of the Medvednica mountain range... Bear Mountain range, however there werent any bears Medvedgrad (Croatian for bear-town or city of bears) is a medieval fortified town located on the south slopes of Medvednica mountain, approximately halfway from the Croatian capital Zagreb to the mountain top Sljeme. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization I have enjoyed my time in croatia.. Belgium is also a member of N.A.T.O The Crest... Croatia has a public education school system that is used by the majority of Croatians. Croatia has a university for studying law, however, many Croatians go to other countries for higher education and wider varieties of studying. Croatian literacy rate is 86% of the population but this was decreased because of the war in Croatia in the 1990's. Timeline of Croatian history Kingdom of Croatia 952 - 1102 Kingdom of Yugoslavia 1918 - 1941 This is the coat of arms of Yugoslavia, seven modern day contries were apart of the original Yugoslavia World War II 1941 - 1945 Although the begining of the war was in 1939 but Yugoslavia Military only joined in 1941, the same year the American's joined Yugoslav Wars 1991– - 1995 Yugoslavia broke up in 1991 but war continued through out the 90's, This was the last stand of Yugoslavia, Croatia broke away and became independant. Democazation - Croatia is now a Democracy which was established in 1999 - 2000 Croatia's Timeline :)... Croatian Culture and Cuisine...... Fried Calamari is one of my personal favorite food and a favorite of many locals. Education Croatia has the exact same education system as we have in America according to grade wise.
Kindergarten- 4-6
Elementary School- 6-10
Middle School- 10/11-14
Highschool- 14-18
The only difference is that they dont have to go to collage for 4 years, most collages go for only 2 years. The Croatian school system is kinda different however, they have day school and night school. Day School is 7:00 am to 1:00 pm Night school is 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm, but these scheduals change each week, so you have day school one week and night school the next. According to what i told you earlier, Croatia's biggest economic Build is its wine and its procuit. This is a thin smoked meat. Croatia's trading partners are :
Germany, Austria, USA, Canada, and France. Thank You for your attention. :)
