Exhibition of Photos About Boka Kotorska Croats to Be Staged in Zagreb

ZAGREB, 9 May 2021 - An exhibition of photos taken by photographer Dražen Zetić about the heritage and culture of the Croats in the Montenegrin Bay of Boka Kotorska will open in the Library of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts (HAZU) in Zagreb on Wednesday, 12 May.

This exhibition called "Fides et honor!" will include also some of the artifacts possessed by the HAZU Academy pertaining to the history and heritage of the Boka Kotorska area, for instance, documents about the Catholic Cathedral of Saint Tryphon dating back to 1166, or a collection of poems written in the Croatian language in Budva in 1640.

As far as the photographs are concerned, author Zetić took them in the period from 2015 to 2020.

The exhibition runs through 31 May.

On Saturday, Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Grlić Radman visited the Croat community in the Bay of Boka Kotorska and on that occasion pledged support to the preservation of the identity of ethnic Croats in that part of Montenegro.

He also announced some plans for including teaching about this Croat community in the educational curricula in both Croatia and Montenegro and in the training of local tour guides in the bay so as to raise awareness about the heritage of that ethnic community.
