Originally, May 30 was considered Statehood Day - a "day off" for most Croatians. But since 2002, Statehood Day was moved to June 25.
Still, May 30 is the anniversary of the nation's first multi-party parliament, in 1990.
The Croatian Parliament is called the Sabor.
Since I just went to Croatia on the best vacation ever, a couple of months ago, I am highlighting my top favorite things we did in Croatia:
Of course, Plitvice National Park. It's truly extraordinary! We hiked in this watery wonderland for five joyful hours.
My daughter called it Shangri La!
Before we got to Plitvice, we were entranced by Slunj. We thought it looked like Dinotopia!
I also loved the sea organ of Zadar, and the nearby Greeting to the Sun.
Rovinj was our favorite part of Istria...
...although we enjoyed seeing the Roman ruins at Pula, as well.
We didn't get all the way down to the walled city of Dubrovnik, but we enjoyed checking out other old, walled cities, such as Trogir.
We had a great time checking out the Easter decorations in the capital city, Zagreb.
We particularly enjoyed this historic church in Zagreb:
Speaking of churches, Easter Sunday at Marija Bastrica was pretty cool.
