The traditional Sv. Križ celebration is held from May 2-3, 2017. 

Hordes of townspeople and their guests gathered in the historic neighborhood of Veli Varoš last night to begin the celebrations of Sv. Križ, reports Dalmacija Danas on May 3, 2017.

The first night’s festivities went into the early morning hours with the smell of sardines and crisp wine filling the sweet spring air. Here’s a look at the fun-filled evening through the lens of Robert Pleško.

The folk festival began at Uvodićeva širina around 19:30 with an exhibition of paintings and motifs by Split artist Ani Kalajžić.
