Glagolitics – the traditional old Croatian letters which in the past few years have been taken out of mothballs during the tourist season and presented to the tourists as an interesting cultural curiosity, thanks to the co-operation of the Little School of Glagolitics organised by the primary school of St Philip and St Jacob and the town tourist board. For the third year running, the Sabor Festival of little Glagolitic letter users “Let’s Go Children – Let’s Use Glagolitics” has taken place during the second weekend in September in the precincts of Rogovska Abbey next to the 11th century church of St Rocco and on the seafront in Turnj and at St Philip and St Jacob. In the precincts of the former Benedictine Abbey, which was donated to the Benedictines by King Krešimir IV, glagolitic letter users from various part of Croatia come together with the aim of preserving the glagolitic letters and of presenting them to tourists as an interesting curiosity. As well as Glagolitic singing, there are also various lectures, round table workshops, exhibitions, stands with the original souvenirs, presentations, theatre plays and concerts. Numerous exhibitors from various parts of Croatia, from small children to academics take part in the event, which is a very interesting way of bringing our cultural history to life for tourists. Organisers of the events are the Little School of Glagolitics and St Philip & St Jacob Tourist Board and the Biograd na Moru Ethographic Museum.
