It will be necessary to produce one s own combination of global and local, initiate alter
native and avantguard cultural projects, namely, everything that makes the current envi
ronment culturally richer and more interesting. To wedge in today, key cultural or his
torical elements of Croatian design through the evocation of prominent figures or spe

Croatia is for now a country with a beautiful coastline plus Dubrovnik. The rest
remains to be developed, but not from the very beginning again, but with a sense of con
tinuity and harmony between old and new forms, from nature and old monument com
plexes to contemporary space of cultural expression and social communication.
The above described instruments of cultural development will be outlined more clearly

development within the range of two extreme points. We will recapitulate, on that basis,
the objectives and instruments of cultural development.
