[19/31] The trail of the glagolitic writers

The Glagolitic alphabet is one of the trademarks of the Dobrinj Region. This ancient alphabet of our ancestors has been saved from oblivion thanks to the enthusiasts bringing a touch of the past into the modern time. Svetko Ušalj from Gabonjin is definitely one of the lovers of the Glagolitic world. He has transliterated numerous documents written in the Glagolitic alphabet and copied the Glagolitic letters from the pergamena parchment onto the stone. It was his idea to open the trail of the glagolitic writers in Gabonjin in 2001 which encompasses the complete Glagolitic alphabet, i.e. 37 Glagolitic letters. They were carved in stone by Mr. Svetko and installed at their permanently designated places through the concerted efforts of the citizens.
