Napoleon's road (Brela)
The French, during their domination constructed a road along Dalmatia - from Obrovac to Boka Kotorska in a very short period of time. Today this road is known as “Napoleon's Road" or the "French Road" and was built primarily thanks to Napoleon's military commander and duke of Dubrovnik, August Marmont, who is remembered the history of Croatia for the numerous advanced measures he implemented within the Croatian region. Local people too were involved obliged to work for the road’s construction process and were paid in food. Unfortunately, due to the withdrawal of the French military forces, this part of the road remained unfinished.
