It is interesting that, as part of their traditional uniform, the Croats, in their own way, tied a colorful scarf around their necks. This beautiful "Croatian style" conquered the picky Parisians of Louis XIV and they adopted a new fashion item, worn “à la Croate” (in the Croatian way). The term soon became the root of the new French word "cravate".
If you are in Zadar, today you will be able to briefly enjoy some historical times.
