No big secret really. Croatia is a touristic country and we must have good roads. A lot of money is being invested in building highways, that we'll probabyly have to pay off for a very very long time.

OK and one more question, what was the real nationality of Nikola Tesla? He was born in present Croatia, but I heard that he was Serbian (no flame).

Ten prešporský zámok pekný murovaný — čudujú sa z neho na Dunaj tí páni,
čuduje sa z neho aj záhorský šuhaj: ako pekne tečie ten povestný Dunaj.

Yes, he was born in Croatia, and his parents were Serbians. This area around border with Bosnia and Herzegovina had a lots of Serbian people. If you remember from history class in school, Turks were stopped in Croatia from further aggression on Europe. Serbians didn't have power to stop Turks so lots of Serbians refugee in front of Turks. We stopped them and also Serbs felt pretty safe here and close to their occupied Serbia. And they stayed. What happened recently is complete another story.

But most important is that Nikola Tesla was great man and by my opinion the best inventor ever. Regarding your question he said one great sentence:

I am proud of my Serbian nationality and my Croatian homeland.

It is very pity that other Serbs in Croatia wasn't at least 10% smart as he was. Then we will not have such terrible war and will be for sure 100% of average EU GDP....

Yes, Tesla was a serbian by nationality, but born in Croatia, and he was always accentuating how he is proud of his croatian homeland and serbian origins. He really wasn't "waving" with his antionality, it was not so important to him, although he was a son of an orthodox priest.

and what's the most tragic thing in my opinion, Zagreb could have been more developed now because it was offered to be electrified long time before then it was, of course by proposal of Nikola Tesla, but some idiot rejected that project.
gosh gosh...

anyways...Tesla rockz! He's definitely one of my favourite inventors ever!

btw, in Zagreb's Technical Museum (Tehnički Muzej) there's a nice department with many of Tesla's inventions and electric current converters, so that's definitely worth to see once when visiting Zagreb. You can actually see a lightning there which is really fascinating!

yes, it must be great.

Some time ago, it was also some Tesla exposition in Bratislava at Slovak Technical Museum this year. Here http://www.atlantislabs.sk/nikola-tesla-vystava-v-snm (but I was not there)

There is a difference between Serb and Serbian, just like Croat/Croatian. Serb usually refers to a member of the Serbs ethnic group, regardless of citizenship, while Serbian usually represents citizenship of Serbia, regardless of ethnic group membership. If you put it this way, Tesla was a Croatian Serb. Tesla, in my opinion, was one of the greatest scientist ever.

The origins of the Croatian name are Iranian. The earliest mention of the Croatian name as Horovathos can be traced on two stone inscriptions in Greek language and script, dating from around the year 200, found by the Black Sea (more precisely in the seaport Tanais on the Azov sea, Krim). Both tablets are held in the Archeological museum in St Petersburg, Russia.

Its mainly a theory due to the similarities in the names of ancient tribes that have been uncovered in inscriptions in this part of the world.

However, genetic tests indicate that the Croats have almost no middle-eastern genes. On the contrary many Croats (38%) have Scandanavian genes, the rest have normal European genes.
