2008 News Archive - Holidays - Croatian crustacean collection

28 08 2007

Croatia is fast becoming one of Europe's hottest new destinations and boasts a number of cultural attractions which should supply lucky tourists with mouth-watering art exhibitions and cultural interest.

September is the last chance for those looking for more unusual sights in the region to visit the basement of a Franciscan Monastery in Makarsa.

In this unlikely venue there is a Malacological museum, housing a collection of shells, snails and mussels and it is thought to be one of the largest compilations of such artefacts in the world.

Holidaymakers can take a break from picking up pretty shells on the countries raved about beaches to sample some of the delights of a collection that has been on display for 40 years and possesses fossils from around the world.

Makarsa is on the Adriatic coastline of the country and has a beach and harbour and provides cafes, boutiques and bars for tourists to enjoy.
