Croatian Cravat Day, October 18

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

Walking through the Split old town one evening i saw this funny sight.. this bronze 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 podgutak, 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 wore cravat also. King Louis XIV of France,

adopted Croatian cravat as his favorite clothing item of the French Royal Court.
