New museum publication: Boje baštine (The Colours of Heritage)

Our new museum publication “The Colours of Heritage” presents folk costumes worn in the past times in Betina, on our island Murter. Folk costume is a precious treasure of the local community. The way of decorating traditional clothing was passed down from generation to generation. The map contains educational materials and coloring sheets, and is intended for children and adults.

Christmas lights at the open-air museum

We turned on the lights in our open-air museum! We hope to brighten up these strange and difficult days and encourage our friends and locals to go out for a walk and enjoy the little things surrounded by beautiful Christmas atmosphere. The view of the Christmas lights on our wooden boats and the decorated main square has a positive effect on the spirit, and in this strange time we all need it. We thank all our volunteers, especially Edo and Ognjen Jakovčev, who did the technical part, the Tourist Board of Betina, the Municipality of Tisno, Elektro Lukin and the Flower Studio Cvita who took part in decorating the boats and the square. Enjoy the atmosphere!

She has a 12-meter-long lantina (yard) and a 57 HP engine, registered for the transport of 12 people, equipped with a 150l oil tank and a 150l water tank, a toilet with a sink and a cooking area. Kvarneriol is made for several days of sailing and a longer stay at sea. The design is like one of our traditional boats – turned into a yacht, but still traditional because she can be paddled on two oars if there’s a need to. One oar on the bow, another oar on the stern. And you can also…
