commercial influence

on the islands of Curicta (Krk), Crepsa (Cres) and Arba (Rab). Almost every city developed its own dialect, but the most important dialects we know of were ''Vegliot'', a northern dialect spoken on the island of Curicta, and ''Ragusan'', a southern dialect spoken in and around Ragusa (Dubrovnik). thumb right 300px Areas of Dalmatian language dialects (Image:Dalmatian Cities.png) Venetian (Venetian language) became a major influence on the language as Venice's commercial influence grew. The Čakavian dialect and Dubrovnik Štokavian dialect, which was spoken outside the cities since the immigration of the Slavs, gained importance in the cities by the sixteenth century, and it eventually completely replaced Dalmatian as a day-to-day language. Avenida Presidente Masaryk (President Masaryk Avenue), a very important avenue in Mexico City, takes its name from him, as does Masaryktown, Florida. So too does kibbutz Kfar Masaryk near Haifa in Israel, a kibbutz founded largely by Czechoslovak immigrants. Also Tel Aviv has a Masaryk Square - Masaryk had visited Tel Aviv in 1927. There is a Street in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, named ''Masarykova ulica'', as well in many other Croatian towns such as Dubrovnik, Varaždin and Split (Split (city)). ''Masarikova ulica'' in Belgrade, Serbia, although one of the smallest in the city, has the address of the tallest building in Belgrade, the Beograđanka palace. One of the streets in the centre of Novi Sad, Serbia is named ''Masarikova ulica''. One of the biggest streets in the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, is also named after Masaryk.

Also, it was a widespread script in Bosnian Muslim circles, which, however, preferred modified Arabic aljamiado script. Serbian Orthodox clergy and adherents used mainly standard, Resava orthography version of Serbian Cyrillic. *the form of Bosnian Cyrillic has passed through a few phases, so although culturally it is correct to speak about one script, it is evident that features present in Bosnian Franciscan documents in 1650s differ from the charters from Brač island in Dalmatia in 1250s. thumb right 200px Cities that have hosted the Games (File:Edizioni gdm.png) No inland city has ever hosted the games.

Recently, Dubrovnik (''Croatia''), Mostar (''Bosnia and Herzegovina'') and Kotor (''Montenegro'') signed an official Declaration for joint candidacy for hosting 2021 Mediterranean Games. On 30 June 1941, Moljević published a booklet with the title ''On Our State and Its Borders''. He proposed a future federal Yugoslav (Yugoslavia) state composed of three units: Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. The Serbian unit was to include Bosnia, Mostar (Herzegovina), parts of Croatia (Metković, Šibenik, Zadar, Ploče, Dubrovnik, Karlovac, Osijek, Vinkovci, Vukovar), as well as Pécs (Hungary), Timişoara (Romania), Vidin and Kyustendil (Bulgaria), the entire Macedonia and North Albania. The Moljević programme envisaged autonomy or special status for the city of Dubrovnik and surrounding areas and the Croat dominated area of Western Herzegovina, within the structure of the internal Serbian entity. thumb right 250px View of Dubrovnik's old town.

However, the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union held February 14–26, 1956, declared false the charges levied against Yugoslavia. Now La Pasionaria came face to face with the man she had slandered. She started to apologize profusely, but Tito cut her short and said, "Do not vex yourself, Dolores, do not worry. I know very well how things worked in those days. I know it perfectly. Furthermore, believe me, I most likely would have done what you did had I been in your situation." Over dinner Ibárruri started to apologize all over again, but Tito interrupted her a second time.
