On Wednesday 13.12.2017 at the Pleternica business incubator – PLINK, we held the first workshop for the development of the interpretation plan and the preliminary museological programme for the future ‘Museum of Bećarac’ in Pleternica. Bećarac is a vocal or vocal-instrumental melody from the regions of Slavonia, Baranja and Syrmia listed on the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Mankind.

More than 20 motivated and enthusiastic stakeholders of the project attended this exceptionally positive and productive workshop. Grouped into seven teams, the participants worked on making a thematic chart of bećarac songs. Of course, this kind of special workshop could not have passed without the creation of several authentic bećarac ditties….

«Oj bećarcu
kulturno nam blago

Pjeva svatko
što mu srcu drago»


“Hey bećarac
our cultural treasure

Everyone sings
what’s dear to his heart”

Authors: Marija Mitrović, Monika Maras, Barbara Rudež

«Moja diko
čuvaj se komarca

Koji bode
na trgu bećarca.»


“My dear beware
of the mosquitoes

That bite on
bećarac square.”
