Ahead of the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, an exhibition in our museum’s Grand Atrium will present devotional objects held in the museum’s Archaeology Department which were gathered during archaeological excavations around parish churches in Rijeka and Mošćenice.
Devotional objects are those which encourage and spread piety and evoke religious mysteries. These include small medals, medallions, crosses, talismans and rosaries that were particularly popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. Among them the most numerous are the small medals bearing images of Jesus or Mary, various saints, sacred objects or places.
The small medals from Rijeka and Trsat are particularly intriguing because it is believed that they were crafted in local workshops.

MRGARI – BAŠKA’S STONE FLOWERS
organizers: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka, Sinjali Association, Tourism Board of the Baška Municipality in cooperation with the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb
photographer: Sanjin Ilić
the exhibition will remain open until 20 July 2023
Mrgari are the loveliest example of the ancient wall construction technique of stacking stones without any kind of binding material. These multi-pen sheep folds with a layout resembling giant stone flowers dominate the karst landscape on the plateaus above the Baška Valley.
The exhibition will be enhanced with new photographs of mrgari, as well as photographs from the Ljubimer mrgari restoration workshops.
About the artist
Sanjin Ilić was born in Rijeka in 1967. He has family roots in Jurandvor, next to Baška. For roughly twenty years he has attempted to convey his fascination with the austere beauty of the Baška plateau through photographs.
The workshops for young creators are held in the Miracle Room at the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka and in the Museum’s garden. Educational programmes are also being held at the remote collections.
BIRTHDAY IN THE MUSEUM
Educational birthday workshops in the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka are aimed at children aged 4 to 12. The workshops are thematic, and the celebrants can choose from six available themes: ‘Masquerade Ball,’ ‘The Trsat Dragon,’ ‘On-board Emergency,’ ‘Unusual Form,’ ‘Challenge Trail,’ and ‘Treasure Hunt.’
The programme will proceed in the Museum’s premises. Must be arranged in advance.
MIRACLE ROOM ON THE ROAD
Miracle Room on the Road is intended for children from distant schools, so that they can more easily participate in educational and creative programmes tied to the Museum’s inventory and content, as well as segments of the local cultural and historical heritage.
