The World’s smallest Book

Natural heritage is cool, as well as the cultural or historical or any other type of heritage. But what if you find, in the middle of a national park, a museum containing a curious finding, every visitor takes photos with?

It’s not easy to take any photo with this piece of heritage. Let me explain 🙂

Krka National Park, situated in the Croatian region of Dalmatia, not far away from Split, is composed with the Krka river and canyon, series of waterfalls, and a large river-lake, which has an island in the middle. The island’s name is Visovac.

The island is very small and has just a monastery on it. There is a museum inside the monastery building. Apart from other interesting things and a lot of stories about the history of this place, the museum has the world’s smallest book.

The World smallest book, this is not red coloured…

Yeah, only the background is red. Even the white-black square is not the Book.

The World's smallest book.
The World’s smallest Book is the black thing in the middle! It has cross on it.

Believe or not, the book has the prayer “Our Father” in seven languages inside. Visitors are not allowed to take it and see how the pages look like, so we cannot have any idea how these contents are “organized” inside.

At the end, look at this panorama, featuring Visovac in the middle.
