PETAR PRERADOVIC E PETRICA KEREMPUH
Na realidade, ZAGREB é uma cidade cheia de praças e esplanadas.
Este post será um pouco internacional, pois além do português escrito por mim, terá um texto em inglês bem como outro em espanhol.
Zagreb é a cidade com mais praças que já conheci… A cada esquina tem uma praça diferente que pode comportar jardins muito bem cuidados e coloridos, ou feirinhas, ou cafés e bares, ou então nada disso, é uma praça e pronto…
É impossível não reparar na enorme quantidade de praças que tem por lá e não dá pra ficar indiferente diante delas. As pessoas sabem realmente como usufruir a cidade.
Na 2ª foto vê-se PETRICA KEREMPUH relacionado com a ARTE e LITERATURA CROATAS.
Esta estátua está junto do mercado das flores, numa pequena praça.
This fellow stands in a small square just above Dolac market. He is Petrica Kerempuh, a folk jester who appears in Croatian art and literature.
Na 1ª foto vê-se uma estátua do poeta PETAR PRERADOVIC na praça com o mesmo nome.
Preradovicev trg is so called because of a statue of the Croatian poet Petar Preradovic, who stands in the centre.
Petar Preradović (March 19, 1818 - August 18, 1872) was a Croatian poet, at his time known as legendary Prerad. He was born in the village of Grabrovnica, which was part of the Austrian Military Frontier. His parents were Serbian Orthodox and, like many from the area, he chose to become a professional soldier.
Petar Preradović was educated at the military academy at Wiener Neustadt where he converted to Catholicism and later excelled as one of the best students.
There he began to write his first poems in German.
After graduation he was stationed in Milan, where he met Ivan Kukuljević Sakcinski, who inspired him to start writing in Croatian.
Preradović was later stationed in Zadar where he began to write for the local Croatian newspaper Zora dalmatinska in 1846.
He then went to Zagreb where he met the leading figures of the Illyrian movement.
In 1847 he was again stationed in Italy where he took part in the Wars of Italian Unification. When he returned to Croatia, he became a close associate of Josip Jelačić. He was stationed to various Austrian military outposts and gradually rose to the rank of general.
Preradović wrote poetry under the strong influence of national romanticism, while his poems often show Panslavist ideas.
He had seven children. One of his grandchildren was Paula von Preradović, Austrian poet and the author of Austrian national anthem.
Preradović's outstanding work was an epic poem, The First Men (1862). He is considered the finest lyricist of the Illyrian literary movement.
Imperdible lugar para visitar es la Plaza del poeta Petar Preradovic, con los animados cafés, los puestos de flores y observar el ir y vanir de los zagrebíes, el paso de los tranvías azules de esta ciudad barroca y gótica, capital de Croacia que mantiene la huella del imperio Austro-húngaro.
