Belonging to the Middle-European and Mediterranean cultural and civilisation circle and tradition, Croatia is extremely rich with valuable cultural and historical heritage, pointing to the millenium old presence of Croatia in the area.

The specific urban culture of coastal and island areas is easily seen in towns such as: Porec, Rovinj, Pula, Zadar, Sibenik, Hvar, Korcula and Ston, with Split (Diocletian's Palace) and Dubrovnik representing a part of the world cultural heritage under UNESCO protection., a project initiated by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and the Open Society Institute-Croatia aims at pooling available information resources on Croatian culture (organizations, associations, institutions, projects, etc.), encouraging their elaboration and enabling cultural workers to find in one place information of interest to them as well as partners for their projects.
