CROATIA 101 (6.16.17)

Hey worms,

So when I was thinking about places to talk about on this month’s 101 post, I remembered watching this trash reality tv show (that I love with all my heart) called ‘Below Deck’ (Anyone?). The show is all about this deck crew on a yacht, and the other week they went to Croatia! Woah, no way, it all ties in.

First I had to check if anyone from Croatia has even seen my blog, and hell yah they have! A solid 17! What can I say, I’m kind of a big deal in Croatia. Croatia freaking loves me. Image result for croatia flag

I’ll be honest, the first time I saw the flag of Croatia, I thought it was a pineapple. This is why my Croatian following is so high. Because I’m high.

Now where in the world is Croatia?

Let’s just get straight into what got my interested in Croatia: the Krka Falls.

They’re crazy beautiful! The minute I saw them, I instantly put them on my bucket list. I love them because they look like steps/stairs of waterfall, and I’ve never seen anything like them before in my life! There’s just so much falling water everywhere you look, it’s insane.Image result for i dont fuck with you gif

So how would I get there? I just looked up times from LAX to Croatia, and it’s only about 20 freaking hours. Cute. You’re funny. Basically spending a whole day in an airplane? Rip.

What language do Croatians speak? Croatian (wow I’m stupid), Bosnian, and Serbian. I also found out that most Croatians speak multiple languages which are most commonly English, German, or Italian. From what I’ve gathered, there would be no problem visiting Croatia if I don’t know Croatian. Bless.

What is the currency in Croatia? Croatia · CurrencyCroatian Kuna. One Kuna breaks down into 100 lipas (similarly to the U.S dollar breaking down into 100 pennies). The value of this currency is around 1 U.S dollar to 6.61 Croatian Kune. There are some exceptions to the Croatian Kuna, and certain items can be bought with euros- such as private accommodations, taxis, some small restaurants, etc.

What about a time difference? California is 9 hours behind Croatia, so basically Croatia knows the future- Croatia is the future. Don’t mess with Croatia.

What is the capital of Croatia? Zagreb, which looks a little something like this:Image result for zagreb croatiaThe Zagreb Cathedral can pretty much be seen from any place in Zagreb, and it’s absolutely stunning. Another place to add to the bucket list(:


Anyways, that about ends this 101 post for Croatia! Have any of you ever been to Croatia? Do you know any other cool facts about Croatia? Hmu in the comments aha.

**Side note: I missed a post yesterday, v sad, I know aha. I’ll be post one tomorrow to make up for it, don’t worry about it (no one noticed? It’s fine aha).

  1. I speak Serbian, but once when I was watching Croatian TV, it was very similar to Serbia but it was probably Croatian. I watch Below Deck Med. every Tues. on Bravo! Such a good show, and they actually filmed those falls in the latest episode.

  2. I grew up learning of Croatia as part of Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia broke up in the early 90s, when I was in high school, if I remember right. And my brother and his friends had some inside joke about Croatia that I never quite understood, but he always thought Croatia was funny.

      1. Haha! When I lived in Davis, there was this little apartment building on the older side of town called “Canadian Apartments,” and I always thought that was a funny name. Hold that thought…

        One time my family was coming up to visit me for the day, and for some reason they had been driving around for a while before they came to meet me; probably because it was a Sunday and they got there early and I wasn’t home from church yet, or something like that. I said something later about where I was going to live next year, or something like that, and my brother goes “I hope you’re not moving to the Canadian Apartments.” I had never told him about that, and he just happened to notice it while they were driving around and thought it was a funny name too. Then he said something like “It’s probably better than living in the Croatian Apartments.” Every time my family goes on a trip somewhere, it seems like we end up with some hilariously silly you-had-to-be-there inside joke, and Croatian Apartments became the inside joke of that trip.
