Croatia - moving around the country
Despite the fact that Croatia is a rather small state, the Croats built 9 large international airports with the aim of developing tourism. In addition, more than a dozen air harbors function in the country for domestic and charter flights. One of the largest airports in the country is Pleso, located 15 kilometers from Zagreb. Local and international banks, souvenir shops, several cafes and restaurants, ATMs, stores and a post office are situated within its territory. Next to the terminal, there is a taxi stand as well as a stop for regular buses. The next major airport is “Split”. It is located 20 kilometers from the city of Split. The territory of this air harbor also has all the amenities for passengers, including nursing rooms.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Croatia
The Croats are patriotic. They are very proud of their nation and honor the freedom they have suffered in a difficult struggle. On October 8, the Independence Day is celebrated in the country. This is a day off. Peaceful rallies and processions are held on the streets. On June 22, Croatia celebrates the Day of Anti-Fascist Struggle. The date was chosen not for an accident. It was on June 22, 1941, when the Sisak detachment was created. That was the first anti-fascist partisan organization in Europe. June 25 is the Day of Power, and August 5 is the Day of Victory and Thanksgiving to the Fatherland. This memorable day arose as the result of the victory in the war of 1991-1995, when Croatia managed to restore its territorial integrity. These days are the most important for the national self-awareness.
