Croatia Information

Every nation around the world has its own claim to fame and Croatia is no exception. Among the many interesting facts and figures relating to Croatia are the following tidbits:

Whilst Leonardo da Vinci was the first man credited with thinking up the concept of the parachute, it was a Croatian by the name of Faust Vrancic who first decided to take the plunge, literally! In the 16th century, Faust used Leonardo’s drawings to create a parachute and subsequently used it for the first ever parachute jump. The attempt was more recently repeated by an amateur parachutist - see the parachute video on the BBC news.

The word “necktie” or “cravat” comes from the French word “cravatta”. A cravatta was a popular fashion accessory in 17th century France, originally copied from the piece of cloth soldiers from Croatia wore around their necks.

Niagara Falls was the location for the original hydro-electric power plant built in 1895 and marked the start of the USA’s national electric grid. The plant was designed by a Croatian – Nikola Tesla.

It’s thought that Marco Polo was born on one of Croatia’s islands – of which there are over 1100 spread out along the Croatian Adriatic coast, which itself stretches for more than 5,800 kilometres.

And, as they say, some we prepared earlier! A few pointers to some information about Croatia that you may find interesting and useful.
