Zagreb

Zlatni licitar (Golden licitar)

more than a year ago
Traditionally, a licitar is a bright red biscuit that is shaped like a heart. It is beautifully decorated, with an icing-like swirl outlining its borders, along with flowers and a small mirror located in its center. Made of sweet honey dough, the licitar, has been a part of northern Croatia's cultural heritage, since the 16th century, when the original licitar makers were known as Medičari. Over the years, this colourful heart has become a traditional symbol of Zagreb and a classic souvenir. It is an attractive ornament that can be given as a gift to your loved ones to show your affection and warmth.
Now, instead of being made by a baker, goldsmiths have transformed these symbolic hearts into dazzling pieces of jewelry. Their bright red colours have been combined with gold and silver to create necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pins. Made using slightly different decorative styles, each golden licitar heart represents love in a unique way, with meanings behind each design, such as 'love is the fire of life,' 'love is the spirit of life,' 'love is the foundation of life' and 'love is the water of life.' As well, each heart can be further adorned with precious stones, rubies, sapphires, diamonds or corals to create a truly beautiful piece of jewelry. Show your affection for those you cherish in your heart with this time-honoured symbol of love.
