Memorial crosses

Memorial crosses on Kornati were built to commemorate Croatian firefighters who lost their lives in Kornati Tragedy on August 30 2007.

Of 13 firefighters that were in a group swept by fire, 12 died on the spot or later in hospitals. This was one of the worst peace time dissasters that has ever happened in Croatia.

You will see 25-meter (83 feet) long and 15 meter (50 feet) wide crosses made by hand and without the use of machinery and binding materials, using only drywall building techniques. As much as 400 cubic meters (14.125 cubic feet) of existing stones from Kornati was used. The constructed was performed by 2.500 volunteers led by firefighters and builders organized in an association for preservation of cultural and natural heritage of the island of Pag called “Suhozid” (literally translated as Drywall). The author of the monument is Nikola Bašić.
