Description

A Croatian professor Krsto Krile took a pilgrimage from Dubrovnik to the Holy Land in 1911 and held a lecture on the travel upon his return to Croatia.

Krile travelled from Dalmatia to Alexandria, Cairo, Port-Said to Jaffa and Jerusalem and from there to the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Emmaus and Haifa. He returned through Damascus, Baalbek and Beirut. The author describes his route, cities and monuments, and illustrates the travelogue with photographs, maps and illustrations. The last part of the text contains prayers, read on certain locations, and the two folding maps showcase Krile’s route from Dalmatia and the Holy Land with an in-set map of Jerusalem and its surroundings. Marked are railroads and railroads under construction.

The travelogue was published by the Committee of the Holy Land in Zagreb.

We could only trace one example in a Slovenian library (Semeniška knjižnica, Ljubljana) through Worldcat and examples in Croatian libraries.
