Baška, Palada street, June 30th – July 14th 2023.
The way we interpret our cultural and historical heritage, preserve old city centres and manage space is very important for our national identity.
Krk Island boasts an exceptional cultural and historical heritage which must be experienced. Its cultural monuments date back from prehistoric times to the present. During the summer months, thirty outdoor panels will be displayed at town squares and promenades in seven enchanting locations on the island. Their exceptional beauty will take visitors to a unique visual journey, so the collection is definitely worth seeing in person. To name a few:
The ancient Fulfinum Mirine site (1st century) near Omišalj, the sacral complex of the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Krk (5th century), Kamplin Square with the Frankopan Castle and the Square Tower (12th century), St Chrysogon’s Church (9th or 12th century) near the village of Milohnić, St Donatus’ Church (12th century) near the village of Kornić (5 km from Krk), the Monastery with a museum collection in Malinska, the Franciscan monastery on the islet of Košljun near Punat, etc.
The early Romanesque Church of St Lucy in Jurandvor is a sacred place of the Croatian national history and culture. In fact, this is where Baška Tablet, the most important monument of the Croatian language and literature written in the Glagolitic script (around 1100) is found.
The Parish Church of the Assumption from 1325 is also worth seeing, with its Renaissance bell tower dating back to the 16th century, which houses the Museum of the Vrbnik Artistic Identity in addition to the Dobrinj Area and the Island of Krk Ethnographic Collection and the Collection of Fossils from the Island of Krk.
The early Romanesque church from 1100 in the village of Sveti Vid, the Deed of Donation by Glorious Dragoslav, is yet another historical gem, as well as St Steven’s Parish Church mentioned in 1100 as the main church of the Dobrinj municipality.
For each destination represented on the exhibition panels, visitors will be able to scan a QR code and connect to the tourist board to which the photograph belongs to, making the tour even more interesting and multimedia-friendly.
The authors participating in the exhibition: Petar Trinajstić and Sanjin Ilić.
We are confident that this interesting open-air exhibition will showcase the cultural heritage of the island of Krk in all its complexity and beauty to numerous visitors
