It’s hard to choose just one of Nikola’s Tesla ’s hundreds of inventions, but the Croatian-born inventor is perhaps most famous for developing alternating current, the system that powers our homes and businesses today and it is hard to imagine every day life without the electricity.
A cravat, symbol of culture and elegance, is associated with Croats. At the beginning of 17th century, Croatian soldiers begun tying identifying scarves around their necks. It is known that the French king Louis XIV was involved in secret negotiations with counts Zrinski and Frankopan in order to get Croatia under French patronage. That failed, but the Roi de soleil started to wear a cravat because it was more practical and more beautiful than the starched high-lace collar the French used to wear. When the most powerful European king put on the cravat, a new fashion style became popular. The court even employed a cravat-maker (cravatier) who delivered a few cravats to the king on a daily basis so he could choose the one that suited him most. The cravat quickly spread across Europe and it conquered all the continents very soon.
