Heroes of Gvozdansko!

#OnThisDay (January 13) in 1578 Ottomans captured Croatian fortress #Gvozdansko.

This event has absolutely no echo in European history because it was one relatively small fortress which fell to Ottomans among so many others.

One mega BUT follows Story of its siege and final fall into hands of the enemy hides most vivid example of the greatest possible heroism of the defenders absolutely rare in the history of warfare which amazed even the enemy.

House within the house.

City of #Bol on island #Brač, #Croatia.

What is the story behind this remarkable object?

Thread ⬇️

📸 by @sky_high_lullaby99 (instagram profile) During the 19th ct. in the town of Bol lived a large Vuković family of 6 brothers.

3 of them were priests and the other 3 were successful naval captains.

The brothers owned a fairly large sailing ship which successfully traded the Mediterranean and earned them a great wealth.⬇️

Dalmatia through history.
Part III:

In previous 2 threads you could have read:
1) about the therm Dalmatia and what it meant in the time of creation
2) what was left of her after crash of Roman authority and arrival of Slavs

In this "sequel" we will see how Dalmatia, from the scattered cities and islands, has become what we consider Dalmatia today.

I will also explain where the historical pretensions of the Italians to Dalmatia came from.

Let's go in order.

Malo o @Electrolux Hrvatska.

Možda ja krivo razmišljam, ali svejedno sam razočaran pa da se pojadam...

Od kad sredismo svoju gajbu, a ima tome više od desetljeća, skoro svi aparati u kući su Electrolux...
1. Indukcijska ploča Zanussi (isto njihova), zamijenjena nakon 12 godina novom Electrolux
2. Pećnica
3. Perilica suđa
4. Perilica rublja
5. Sušilia rublja
6. Grill plata
7. Mikrovalka
8. Kuhalo za vodu...

I u svakoj kategoriji top uređaj.
I uglavnom sam zadovoljan; uređaji svi traju.

I pazi sad...

In Part I (👇🏿) you could find out how the term Dalmatia originated and what it represented at the time of its origin (after 9 AD).

Now let's move on further.⬇️
The province of Dalmatia was large. It included the territories of modern states:

- Bosnia and Herzegovina (without Sava valley)
- Montenegro and
- (western) Serbia.

Well, how did we come from THAT Dalmatia to what we know today under the term Dalmatia? ⬇️ Image

Ime Dalmacija je rimsko i datira iz prvog stoljeća poslije Krista.
Međutim, korijen toga naziva još je stariji, ne znamo ni sami koliko datira u prošlost...
