Great variety of Easter customs in Croatia

Easter Greeting cards with Croatian national costumes, painted by Zdenka Sertić

We present Easter customs by Croatian greeting cards from the mid-20th century (Zdenka Sertić, Andrija Maurović, Zlatko Šulentić, etc.) to contemporary photos from 2021 (Snježana Božić). A variety of customs refer to Easter eggs, blessing of food, kissing of the Cross, etc. Most of the cards were provided by HKD Napredak (Croatian Cultural Society Advancement) of Bosnian Croats in Zagreb, as well as by Mrs. Snježana Božić and her father, who are using an interesting technique brought to Croatia by their grand-parents from Slovakia.
