The old paths, trails and roads of Vinodol are the theme of the exhibition “In the Web of Paths,” which deals with the dense network of thoroughfares that intersect the littoral landscape. The exhibitions attempts to answer these questions: who built these routes and when, who used them, and where to they go? The exhibition’s creators examined the old paths and roads that appeared in the period from the beginning of the 18th to the mid-19th century in the area from Drivenik to Bribir, with the adjacent coastal belt and hinterland.
The main thoroughfares that functioned as the arteries of economic and social life during that period are highlighted in the exhibition. The exhibition takes a historical/ethnographic approach to the topic, as just one of the possible ways of understanding historical road construction in Vinodol. Numerous maps, photographs and video materials are used to present this intriguing and oft-neglected civil engineering heritage.
