Croatia to Promote Maritime Heritage at a Festival in France

By 7 April 2019

ZAGREB, April 7, 2019 - A project titled "Croatia – Where Masts Write Stories", which will promote Croatia at a forthcoming European maritime festival in the French coastal town of Morbihan, was presented by Cronaves, an association for the promotion of Croatia's maritime heritage.

Following an invitation from the organisers of the festival "Gulf Week - Gulf of Morbihan", which will take place in the northwestern French region of Brittany from 27 May to 2 June, Croatia will promote its maritime heritage, the Cronaves chairman Plamenko Bavčić said.

He said that the purpose of attending this biennial festival is to increase the recognisability of Croatia as a maritime country.

Over a thousand boats gather in the Ascension week every two years to put on an extraordinary spectacle in one of the most beautiful bays in the world, the organisers say on the festival's website.

Croatia's programme includes the presentation of tradition of small shipbuilding from Betina on the island of Murter and from the islands of Hvar and Ugljan.
