Towers of Croatia

Croatians love their towers. We’ve seen more towers in Croatian towns than in any other place in Europe, and most self-respecting villages have at least one, if not more. They vary in shape and size, but they’re all quite beautiful and unique:

Some of them reminded us of Cornell’s McGraw Tower (no examples here, unfortunately), and others reminded us of Cal’s Campanile. The one below looks a lot like that iconic tower on Berkeley’s campus:
