Alluding to the famous title of Ernst Trost’s study Das blieb vom Doppeladler (1966), this article opens the question of the Habsburg legacy in Croatia after the „turning point” of 1918. The dissolution of the Habsburg Monarchy and the creation of the Yugoslav state, temporarily stopped the several centuries long connections between the Croatian lands and other Central European cities and states. There was a new intensification of an economic, social, cultural and political interplay, during the early interwar years, and particularly after the Great Depression, which served to distinguish the continuities from the pre-1918 era. Various elements „survived” the collapse of 1918 and had manifested in various ways in Croatia during the 1920s and 1930s. The longue durée of the Danube Monarchy in Croatia is analysed through the hidden, polymorphous mentalities, ideological constellations, various cultural transfers, as well as by finding the places of memory regarding „old Austria” and the macroeconomic Central European structures. The paper reviews various examples of Habsburg heritage research in the Croatian scholarly works and finally promotes some specific topics and methodologies which might help re-orient „Habsburg studies” in Croatia.
