About Folk Costumes

Until the Second World War, skirts were worn of an old-fashioned type. Newer costumes are from the period after the war. The shirt was embroidered. Women knitted on a hook or on two spools (needles), with very thin sewing threads. Lace was bought afterwards. You have to do everything yourself. The huštani (type of skirt) were made of thick black linen bought from the stores. My father-in-law, when he was in Argentina, sent me material to make huštan. The huštan was on straps.

Who had money would buy lace, and who didn’t, had to make their own. Čenašić (decoration on…

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!

When they sailed with her on the Adriatic, everyone looked and admired her, they say. Sandokan, a leut 8.53 m long and 2.90 m in width, was made by the late Šime Jušić, a shipbuilder from Betina. They say they wanted a traditional leut as they saw it in Betina and Murter, but modernized and slightly different. Šime was…
