Dora Krupić

A bronze sculpture is made by Ivo Kerdić.

Dora Krupić is a character from August Šenoa’s novel “The Goldsmith’s Gold”. Published in 1871, the book is considered to be Croatia’s first real historical novel. The plot centres on a 16th- century love story involving a nobleman and a town girl called Dora, the kindly and beautiful daughter of a goldsmith. Tragically Dora ends up being poisoned by an evil local barber, enraged by her refusal of his marriage proposal. A bronze sculpture by Ivo Kerdić was commissioned in her honour in 1929.

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.
