GREAT LEGENDS - ILLUSION OR REALITY ?

 

 

Legends have teased the human imagination since the beginning of the times. Just like myths, the have been passed down for centuries from generation to generation, and so remained preserved to this day.

Old tales of the foundations of settlements, migrations, quests, catastrophes, prominent leaders and rulers, wise statesmen and legislators, adventurous sailors, famous beauties, heroic fighters, bold rebels, etc. have been literary decanted into legends like the Iliad, Odyssey, Ramayana, Babylonian epic of Gilgamesh, Buddhist Tripitaka, Persian Zend - Avesta, Vergil's Aeneid and others. With the triumph of Christianity, the legends begin to form around the personalities and events of religious significance.

Folk tradition preserves and multiplies the legends about the representatives of the feudal society of knights (Charlemagne, Arthur, Tristan, Lancelot, Hamlet, Isolde and others), while the Crusades transfer the treasures of their legends to the West.

 

On our journey through the legends, we will explore a couple of legends:

- The legend of Parsifal of Wolfram von Eschenbach
- The Legend of the Mother of God on the Stone Gates in Zagreb
- The Pyramids near Sarajevo
- The Legend of the Three Crosses in Trogir
- Emperor Diocletian in Split (IV c.)
- Legend of Mila Gojsalić - Croatian Joan of Arc in Omis (XVI century.)
- The legend of St. Blaise and Richard the Lionheart in Dubrovnik
- Legends of Cavtat - Croatian Atlantis
- And throughout the entire journey you will hear the story of Teuta, Illyrian Queen, and Odysseus and his journey to return home.

We hope you will feel the charm of these stories from different regions, countries and centuries and feel amazed, as we were while preparing this trip for you.
