The best way to learn about a country’s culture is through its folklore. If you want to experience Croatian energy, feel the pulse of the people and learn more about its identity, you should definitely see LADO, Croatia’s professional folk dance ensemble. The company will wow you with its beautiful singing and dancing, its amazing orchestra and energetic choreographies together with the authentic costumes worn on stage.
