    The photographs by Mr. Branimir Kvartuc are beautiful and meaningful. They prove that one picture is worth 1000 words. Also the video is outstanding.

    Wonderful article, beautiful photos. I would love to see a more in-depth article regarding the traditional costumes of the ljelje queens. What are the meanings behind the medallion shawls, and the mirrors on the hats? Why are the hats so tall, and what is on top?
