Fodor's Expert Review Croata
Ties may not be the most original of gifts, but they are uniquely Croatian. During the 17th century, Croatian mercenaries who fought in France sported narrow, silk neck scarfs, which soon became known to the French as cravat (from the Croatian hrvat). At Croata you can buy "original Croatian ties" in presentation boxes, accompanied by a brief history of the tie. There, you can also find tasteful gifts for ladies, including scarves, shawls, and accessories.
