Croatian indented shape spreads the country throughout wide areas of the Mediterranean, Dinaric and Pannonian regions. The Mediterranean area is exceptionally interesting for its cultural peculiarities and various deeply rooted traditions, as well as for the sphere of its oral literature. Different levels of culture are present in this area: from the remains of the pre-Christian tradition, the popular traditional Christianity and the written literature that penetrated this region. The oral literature belongs to a special place for the early influence it had on the written literature as well as for its written documents. Besides, the interweaving of the popular and urban culture has remained a feature of the Croatian literature until today.
