Dora - the goldsmith's daughter

This is Dora Krupićeva - she was the only daughter of a goldsmith who lived at the Upper Town. More importantly she is not real but a character from a very famous novel written by Croatian writer August Šenoa in 1871. So, to make a long story short (as the Americans would say) at the end she died (was poisoned) because would not want to merry the evil Grga Čokolin. Oh well...


  1. Found your lovely blog when I tried to learn more about the story of Dora Krupićeva.

    Thanks a lot for posting this peace,though it still fails to give me a full picture of that story.

    I visitd Croatia early August, and was left to deep impression. Will keep on following your blog.

    P.S. I'm from Taiwan.
