Croatia has as many as 500 traditional Christmas carols, the oldest ones dating from the 12th century, and sung also today. This number is probably greater than in the case of any other nation in the Christian world. We provide several video recordings to illustrate this important religious and musical heritage of the Republic of Croatia, which was a source of inspiration for numerous composers. On the photo a Christmas detail from the wooden portal of Andrija Buvina in the Split Cathedral, dating from 1214, of 530 cm of height. This is a top monument of Croatian culture.

We send our warmest Christams greetings to Mr. Slobodan Praljak and his family.



The Cathedral of Sv. Dujam in the city of Split is considered to be the oldest one in the world (7th century).
Previously it served as a mausoleum of Diocletian, a Roman Emperor (3rd/4th centuries).

Bio je Božić. Krasna noć. Nebo vedro, osuto zlatnim zvijezdama. Zima ljuta, a po gori zagrebačkoj, po prodolima snijeg do pasa. Na suhim granama blistalo inje poput alema, a mjesečina titrala snijegom kao da je zemlja posuta biserom... Bio je Božić, sveti dan.... Svijet se veselio spomenu kralja nebeskoga, kojino u Betlehemu ugleda svijet. Blagi se mir spuštao na dušu čovječju i u sav glas kliktalo grlo: Narodi se kralj nebeski!

August Šenoa: Zlatarevo zlato, Zagreb, 1871.

Zahvaljujemo gospođi Jasmini Reis iz Zagreba na poslanom prilogu.
