History of Cristo Ressussitato Galley

24.09.2021. - 22.10.2021. / Krk

Celebration of the 450th anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto

Cristo Ressussitato (Resurrected Christ), a galley ship from Krk, participated in the Battle of Lepanto, which was one of the greatest and most glorious naval battles in history, that took place on October 7th in 1571 between a combined fleet of the Christian nations and the Ottoman forces. In Europe, in the last years, this famous battle anniversary has gained great prominence, and every year the representatives of the Mediterranean countries of the former Holy League meet at Naufpactos (Lepanto) in order to remember all galliots, soldiers and sailors who died in that battle. In 2007, Croatia was represented by the Town of Krk. In fact, that particular visit to Greece made numerous delegations of the allied countries look into a more detailed consideration and research of Krk in the XVIth century, of its life and inhabitants. Having inherited such a rich cultural and historical tradition and having recognized in that battle an exceptional maritime tradition, the project A History of Cristo Ressussitato Galley was launched in 2008.
