Croatian customs

Before going on vacation in a foreign country, it is worth getting acquainted with the customs and customs prevailing in it. Knowledge about them will not only allow us to avoid cultural misunderstandings that could offend the hosts of the visited country, but also to get to know their mentality better. What to remember during a family vacation in Istria ? Let's start with the fact that Croatians are considered an extremely welcoming, open and cheerful nation, very helpful to tourists. Often, when going to a campsite in Croatia , we can meet with a small snack from the owner, willing to talk. During them, however, you should avoid topics related to the war with the Serbs, the history of the country, and even football teams that divided the fans of this sport. While sunbathing, we should avoid littering and making noise, poorly perceived by local residents. Topless sunbathing is allowed, but it is best to use the nudist beaches popular in the region.

I like closer and longer journeys - with an analog camera and a great appetite, because I always like to get to know the local cuisine during the trip. My favorite region in Europe is the Balkans, especially Montenegro, Albania and Bosnia with Herzegovina, which I have visited several times. I dream of returning to beautiful and unpredictable Iceland. I am currently in Southeast Asia.
