Enjoy some authentic Italian food in this northern Croatian town. Groznjan is the only city with an Italian majority in Croatia. This town houses ancient Roman artifacts, has been ruled by the Venetians, Austrians, Italians and Yugolslavians, and has seen many wars and struggles. The whole town is a small fortified fortress that wears the scars of war and neglect. But in the 1960’s, sculptor Aleksandar Rukavina brought revitalization. Artists began to move here and the prestigious Jeunesses Musicales International soon opened up. Today, you’ll find artists and musicians colonizing this once forgotten stone town.
