The lecture aims at presenting Croatia as the home of countless archaeological and historical cultural monuments, which all together make this country a unique cultural and historical landscape. From earliest prehistory through antiquity and the Middle Ages, until the Modern Age and the present day, the territory of Croatia has always been a place of encounter and intersection of various cultures and traditions, as well as often diverse worldviews, whose interplay through the ages has helped lay the foundations and build the edifice of a modern European country, proud of its rich and diverse origins.
