Andrija Petrić Muse Celebrated his 100th Birthday

By 4 May 2016

I noticed him last year, when walking through the little streets in Stari Grad. He was sitting outside of his home, smoking a cigarette and repairing his fishing net. A wonderful sight of the old city. I didn´t know how old, however..

According to, Andrija Petrić called Muse was born on May 3, 1916, which means it was his 100th birthday yesterday. Not giving his age any reason to slow him down, he keeps himself busy repairing his fishing net, while being an active smoker for more than 80 years.

Happy birthday to the oldest man in Stari Grad!!
