No. 4 APRIL 2019.

 

The April/Easter issue of our monthly Matica magazine features a diversity of events, both at the Zagreb headquarters of the Croatian Heritage Foundation and around the world. This issue focuses on the island of Krk, its history, the many centuries during which people have emigrated from the island, its legacy of culture, two major figures and the other brands produced by our largest island.

The masterwork mosaic produced in 1972 by Edo Murtić, one of our art greats, is featured on the cover of this issue.
