A lot of small and really beautiful places are located in Europe, but they are not as well known as some modern and sophisticated destinations. Bad traffic connections, too little promotion of place or too much distance from popular tourist attractions are just some of the reasons why tourists do not visit these beautiful locations. However, there are still those people who have decided to visit them and based on their impressions and experiences has been published a list of 10 the most beautiful European villages including one Croatian village.

White Mediterranean houses
Something that makes Pučišća special are numerous white Mediterranean houses. This specific white stone comes from here, so the place is known for its stonemasonry tradition. In the nearby quarry, there is a stone that has built many buildings, and particularly worthy of mentioning is the White House in Washington.
Luka 13 kula (Port of 13 towers)
Pučišća is often called "Luka 13 Kula " because in the past there were 13 towers that served as protection against the constant attacks of the pirates. Sounds like a movie, right?
