Let's go to the beach and learn about Croatian inventors surrounded by nature as it certainly was their inspiration. If there was an index to calculate a country’s inventiveness gene, Croatia would rank extremely high. This small country of no more than 4 million people has advanced the world in all major spheres of life. Croatian inventors have dreamed up ingenious abstract concepts and have also created hands-on solutions that we use in everyday life. Starting from Nikola Tesla who literally “lit up the world” with his alternating electric current to Slavoljub Penkala whose pen allows us to sign our name – physically on paper and metaphorically as a legacy. Many of Croatia’s greatest minds lived a quiet life, as most geniuses do...but left us an enormous amount of inventions that make everyday life easier. What better way to connect to your travel destination than to realize how its inventors influenced the world at large, and your own day-to-day life. So Andrea will take you into a peaceful area of her island to tell you about some of them and certainly will surprise you with the data she prepared .

Always love your tours. This one was fascinating, I had no idea so many Croatians were responsible for the inventions we use every day.
