Walking through the Split downtown one evening i saw this funny sight.. this bronze monument Marko Marulić monument was tied with a red neckerchief. i posed this photo linking two important reasons:

  • remembering the old Croatian folk garment, originally called podgudak, later called cravat which from the 17th century began to conquer the (fashion) world..

  • memory of the 510th anniversary of Marulić creation of his epic poem Judita in the Croatian language, and the 490th anniversary of its printing.

Speaking of fashion and literature, i must note that the Croatian poet Ivan Gundulić dressed cravat before King Louis XIV of France, who adopted Croatian cravat as his favorite clothing item of the French royal court.
