The first Croatian historical novel,a tale of forbidden love between the daughter of a goldsmith and a nobleman’s son set against the backdrop of the streets and squares of 16th century Zagreb, represents a true cultural souvenir.
Love and passion, plots and intrigue, nobles, commoners, tricksters, murderers… A patchwork of colorful characters is bound to leave you breathless! The town lies before you. In the words of Šenoa himself:
“below the mountain, a jewel most precious to us glimmers in the sun, strong like a mighty hero… the town of Zagreb”.
The visual concept is the result of an attempt to combine the Renaissance plot of the novel, a Romantic literary style, and the modern interpretation of the digital-age readers, designed by Croatian designers.
