Croatia is quite rich archaeologically, thanks to the diverse number people that have called the country’s land home since prehistoric times. There’s cavemen in Krapina and Roman ruins scattered throughout the country in towns like Pula, Split, and Varadinske Toplice. And if you missed the news, a 3rd century gold ring among other ancient items was recently unearthed in Vinkovci. Near Split and the river Jadro, another archaeological dig site in Solin can be found, pictured above. The town was the original location of Salona, the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and the birthplace of Emperor Diocletian.
