Lecture at the Faculty of Maritime Studeis in Rijeka, 15.4.2014

One among the greatest maritime catastrophes, the sinking of RMS Titanic, started the largest changes in the maritime regulations, but also it highlighted a number of heroes who helped the victims in the cold April night. In honour of the RMS Carpathia and her crew, the Faculty of Maritime Studies in Rijeka marks the 102 years since the courageous crew led by Cpt. Arthur Henry Rostron left the site of sinking and started its voyage with the survivors towards New York.

Exhibition Coats of Arms in the Cress countryside, Cres Museum, March-May 2013

Exhibition Coats of Arms in the Cress countryside Cres Museum, March-May 2013Exhibition Coats of Arms in the Cress countryside Cres Museum, March-May 2013 As any countryside, the countryside of the island of Cres includes the estates in the country, namely the rural estates belonging to landowners who did not actually live in the village but were permanently settled in the nearby towns – Osor and Cres. In the past, apart from the Catholic Church, religious orders and the municipalities of Osor and Cres, the major land owners were also various fraternities and members of nobility or gentry. Therefore, their coats of arms can be found in some country states where they spent summer holidays. As in all medieval Europe, the cities in the eastern Adriatic developed as well: the cities like Osor and Cres maintained their appearance through the coexistence of urban core and its agrarian surroundings. Noble and rich residents of the city wanted to improve their lives, trying to occasionally spend some active time on their newly-earned properties in the country, especially since the 19th century. Most country estates were established out of business and economic reasons for better monitoring and maintenance, particularly in late spring during the period of sheep shearing and cheese production.
