Founded in 1996, the Folklore Ensemble „Šiljakovina“ has been cherishing the rich cultural diversity of the national folk tradition performing folk music, songs and dances originating from different Croatian regions.
The Ensemble has participated in many folk festivals in Croatia, such as the national festival of choreographic folklore in Koprivnica and the national festival of authentic regional dances Vinkovačke jeseni. Our younger members have participated in many regional festivals of choreographic and authentic children dances. The Ensemble’s international experience includes folk festivals in Poland, Macedonia and Hungary.
In present day, the Enesemble works guided by excellent folkloric experts and gathers around one hundred members – dancers, singers and musicians in 7 sections of different age groups.
