About the region
Ravni kotari has always been the home of proud people and fertile land. It has been a desirable place to live for thousands of years now, to which the fact that the region was inhabited for 5 thousand years without interruption testifies. Owing to its many qualities, the region of Ravni kotari was claimed by a number of different rulers. Each new reign enriched the cultural heritage of this region. This is why tolerance, adaptability, hospitality and kindness are today the main values of the local population. As before, those values today represent the foundations of a quality life together.
