    Croatia



    We've visited Croatia for 2 weeks recently. I highly recommend to everyone to visit Plitvice lakes. Stunning views, amazing, just brilliant.

    Agree on Plitvice

    Hi vadu,

    Apart of Plitvice, I highly recommend for all who like sea and summer to visit Istria as well as Plitvice.

    If you haven't been to Istria, Istria is west and upper part of Croatia that borders Slovenia and 20 km away from Italy. It has beautiful beaches and represents top of Croatian summer attraction. I highly recommend specifically Rovinj, Pula and Porec and eastern part of Istria with magnificent country side.

    I used to go to summer vacation on Croatian sea coast every year when I was kid...
    Beautiful coast, and people are ok...

    Though I do not think I will go anytime soon again there, as many people in Croatia are still pissed of on people from Serbia as they blame them for wars that took place... my point of view on who is guilty for wars is somewhat different...

    When I think of sea, I still think of Croatia... I think ex-Yugoslavia was great country...it is pity that it fell a apart on so terrible way

    I think that you do have a point. I am no expert on Yougoslavia, but from what I know of it, it was the closest we ever got to finding the right balance between respecting cultural/ethinic groups but maintaining untity.

    topic is Croatia, not Yugoslavia...

    in 80s Yugoslavia had very rich music scene...
    the two songs from posts above I do not really like...

    so, to give better preview of the music scene here are some great songs of bands from Croatia (because this is topic about Croatia) from 80s that I still remember

    *looool* What drugs did these guys take?

    I like Denis & Denis. Probably they would have been R-Rated in other countries. Same to the first video of Neno Belan.

    lol, R-rated...
    are art works in museum R-rated too in your country? :)

    ex-Yugoslavia had really great music scene... lot of good musicians in all republics...

    for this topic I have chosen some more great bands/songs from Croatia from 80s

    *lol* Well, I doubt that Denis&Denis will be presented in museums, but who knows, perhaps in a couple of years... I've been to a GDR museum some while ago and there you could watch old East German 80's video clips in a room.

    Actually i'm not a big fan of this sort of 80's wave and pop music, but the scene and production of this in Yugoslavia seemed to be really rich and developed.

    Nowadays the big music labels, due to massive internet downloads and youtube are not willing to take any risk anymore. So they only support and introduce new artists with music styles which have already proven themselves at some point of pop&rock music history (from 60's to 90's), which makes listening to the radio really boring nowadays. That's why I'm getting more and more interested in how other countries cope with this problem and what glimmer of something new might come up from there.

    I would dare to say that music scene of ex-Yugoslavia was in 80s in Europe comparable to UK music scene, and higher quality than music scenes in most other countries...

    In ex-Yu, most influential music scenes were in Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia (in whichever order you prefer), while Slovenia and Macedonia were somewhat less influential likely because their languages are somewhat more offset from Serbo-Croatian that was main official language in Yugoslavia.

    Anyway, coinciding with wars and postwar crisis is diminished development of most of those music scenes...

    Btw. besides for music, Serbs and Croats seems to be very talented for sports... and apparently also for making extremely pointless and useless quarells among themselves...

    Anyway, I highly recomend tourist visit to Croatian sea coast area... it is very beautiful place...

    I can also recommend Istria in the Summer, we went once a couple of years back. It was amazing!

    Plitvice lakes (I agree with previous post), National Park Krka, Dubrovnik, VaraĹždin and Trakoscan castle... That's your local recommendation:)
