Croatian national legislation
The field of cultural heritage protection is in Croatia regulated by the Law on protection and preservation of cultural heritage (Zakon o zaštiti i očuvanju kulturnih dobara) from 1999, with several later modifications.
There is missing a specific definition of what is an archaeological site but in articles n. 2 is written: cultural goods are archaeological sites and archaeological zones, landscapes and their parts that testify the presence of man in space and which have an artistic, anthropological and historical value.
Article 6 contains the definition of what an archaeological park is, namely: “Archaeological park is a researched, protected and presented archaeological site or its part that includes informative and didactic components of presentation and interpretation in order to raise awareness of the importance of archaeological heritage.”
