Did you know that the homeland of the necktie is Croatia?


The traditional Croatian 17th century uniform attracted the attention of the then residents of Europe for the picturesque scarves tied around mens necks in a characteristic way. Ordinary soldiers wore ties made of coarse linen, whereas officers wore those made of silk and delicate cotton.

You may find the story of the necktie (kravata in the Croatian language) as well as many top quality ties with the most recent design, typical Croatian motifs and modern patterns at the Croata Shop facing the Rectors Palace, and at some other shops in the Old City.
