Betina Museum of Wooden Shipbuilding Wins Europa Nostra Award

Lauren Simmonds

As Morski writes on the 30th of October, 2019, the popular and fascinating Betina Museum of Wooden Shipbuilding received the prestigious Europa Nostra European Heritage Award in the Education, Learning and Awareness category at last night’s Grande Soirée du Patrimoine Européen ceremony at the Théâtre du Châtelet in the French capital of Paris.

The director of the Betina Museum of Wooden Shipbuilding, Kate Šikić Čubrić, accepted the award on behalf of this unique museum which pays hommage to the village on the island of Murter that is unfortunately one of few remaining centres of small wooden shipbuilding on the whole of the Croatian Adriatic in the modern day.

The ceremony which was held in the glamorous French capital city is considered to be the most festive part of the European Cultural Heritage Summit program, which has been taking place in Paris this year from October the 27th to the 30th.

The whole event took place under the auspices of the French President Emmanuel Macron, and Croatia certainly shone brightly once again.
