Legends

Full of great stories

In the warm light of a burning fireplace, stories of the Black Queen, who created the well-known natural wonder of Plitvice Lakes, of the fairies that built the Arena in Pula, of the benevolent Istrian giants, and of the Adriatic adventures of the powerful Illyrian queen Teuta have been passed down from generation to generation.

 

Wait until you hear the incredible stories of the witches from the Klek Mountain, the origins of the city of Zagreb, the mysterious island of Lokrum that once saved the life of King Richard the Lionheart, and the tragic romance of Miljenko and Dobrila.
