August the 6th, 2020 – Fancy getting better acquainted with the archaeological heritage of what’s below the surface of the waves on the Central Dalmatian islands of Hvar and Scedro?

Croatia is extremely rich in flora and fauna. This small country provides an array of landscapes, from the karst Dalmatian mountains and the crystal clear Adriatic sea to the lush rolling green hills of continental Croatia. From Velebit to the desert of Djurjdevac, it’s difficult to come by such diversity in such a small area. However, it isn’t just the land that offers surprises.

Croatia’s rich underwater world is home to everything from sharks, dolphins and sea turtles to extremely well preserved WW2 planes, and there’s likely much more that we’re yet to stumble upon. 

As Morski writes on the 5th of August, 2020, the exhibition entitled ”The underwater archaeological heritage of the islands of Hvar and Scedro” is an exhibition that follows the developments and recent underwater research in this area of Croatia.

The exhibition will present the development and recent research of the Hvar seabed undertaken by Marinko Petric from the Hvar Heritage Museum, Tee Katunaric from the Art Academy of the University of Split, Jurica Bezak and Igor Mihajlović from the Croatian Restoration Institute and Sasa Denegri from the Conservation Department in Split.

The organisers of the exhibition, which focuses all of its attention on the islands of Hvar and Scedro, are the Tourist Board of the City of Hvar, the Museum of the City of Split, the Academy of Arts of the University of Split and Kantharos d.o.o.

The exhibition will be open on Thursday, August the 6th at 18:00 at the Gallery of the Museum of the City of Split in Dioklecijanova Ulica (Diocletian’s street), and you can see it until August the 19th, every day except on Sundays, from 09:00 to 13:00 and from 16:00 to 20:00.
