Arguably Hvar’s most treausred tradition – the 500 year-old UNESCO ‘Za Krizen’ (Behind the Cross) procession finished just after 0700 on April 14, 2017. TCN was there through the night. 

It is a procession we have written about a lot over the years, and this year’s event even brought Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenkovic. More of that later, but for the pilgrims taking part in this unique 22km procession through the night, a video appreciation with timeframe.

0230 – the arrival of Svirce
