Are you planning to visit Croatia? You should not skip Zagreb. The country’s capital is a simple and magnificent city, full of stories, fun, and full of life, as Croatian official slogan suggests – Croatia Full of Life. This article is a kind of beginner’s guide and is very special to me, as Zagreb is […]
This time has come. We are already in the Vučedol’s New Year since the Orion has disappeared from the night sky, being replaced by the Sun, and more hours of Sunshine. What are the earliest beginnings of the European history? Surely they can be found in the Neolithic/Eneolithic cultures. Vučedol culture is the most emblematic one. […]
Sit down, “keep calm”, and prepare for a little insight from the history of having fun, something that starts in the nature. Stories told by museums might repeat in specific types of museums across the world. i guess that almost every archaeological museum has those usual pieces like tools, army or jewellery on display, and there […]
During my recent trip to Vukovar I had great moments in Vučedol, an important archeological site, with a recently opened concept-based museum which is perfectly fulfilled with fun experiences. Apart from the original pieces found on the site and some copies of previously found pieces that had ended up in other Croatian museums, this museum goes beyond and offers […]

Many wall paintings, sculptures and everyday items found on archaeological sites of any of these cultures can lead us to such conclusions. In the Vučedol Culture, an […]
Today I’ll talk about a museum situated in a real metropolis. This is the second episode of the post series about unknown stories from archaeology in Europe, about a place that was the “prehistoric London”, according to professor Aleksandar Durman. It was 5000 years ago on the banks of the Danube, in Central Europe, when […]
