Not enough Croatians visiting museums Not enough Croatians visiting museums

Croatia most uncultured nation in European Union

By  Sep 23, 2017

The European Statistical Agency Eurostat has recently stated that Croatia is at the bottom of the European Union when it comes to the involvement of people in cultural activities.
The Eurostat data show that last year only 36,6 percent of Croatian citizens visited a cinema, theatre, museum or historical site.

In comparison to other EU member countries, Croatia is only better than Bulgaria with 28,6 percent of people who were involved in cultural activities.

As stated by the European Commission, cultural participation is an essential dimension of the European statistical framework for culture as it is a "raison d'être" for the cultural sectors. It contributes to personal well-being and to the integration of individuals in society.

The Eurostat survey covered the following cultural activities: reading habits (books and newspapers); going to the cinema; attending live performances (plays, concerts, operas, ballet and dance); and visiting cultural sites (historical monuments, museums, art galleries or archaeological sites).
