Study Tour Highlights

by Daniel Riecker, MUDEC Student Activities Coordinator
Day 3: Students walk by a giant statue of Grgur Ninski
Dobar dan! For the past week, MUDEC has been exploring the sunny Croatian coast. It’s all part of this summer’s study tour, through which our students are learning about the history, heritage and culture of this beautiful region.
We spent the first day walking around the city of Zadar with a local guide. Located on the Dalmatian coast, Zadar is a historically important port city with a history dating back thousands of years. Though proudly Croatian today, it was, for centuries, a Venetian stronghold – a heritage still represented by the winged lion that adorns the old city gate.
On day two, we headed inland for a visit to Krka National Park and its awe-inspiring waterfalls. Day three was spent in the city of Split, in the shadow of the Diocletian Palace and the statue of 10th-century linguist Grgur Ninski (at left).

Day 4: at the cheese factory on the island of Pag
On day four, we embarked on a “Taste of Zadar” tour with stops at a cheesemaker on the island of Pag and the famous salt flats of Nin. Exploring the cheese factory, tasting the prosciutto, and seeing the unearthly landscape of the salt flats was a great way to experience this local economy that produces such globally-renowned products.

As I write this newsletter, we are driving up the coast to the region of Istria, our destination for the final few days of the tour. Though the landscapes will change, we are certain that the experiences that await us will continue to enrich our vision of this complex and picturesque country.
