- Cross on Mt. Srđ
Cross on Mt. Srđ
Josip Marija Carević, the Bishop of Dubrovnik, had the cross on Mt. Srđ made. It was built to commemorate the crucifixion of Christ 1900 before. The Cross was erected on the 10th of June 1935 and blessed, but during the war, more precisely on the 6th of December 1991, the Cross was demolished. After a few years, the defenders built a wooden cross as a sign that they are still on Srđ. The Cross was restored on 12th of October 1997 thanks to the aforementioned Bishop Josip Marija Carević and blessed by the Croatian Cardinal Josip Kuharić. The remains of the demolished Cross were incorporated in the altars in the new church after they were blessed in 2003 by Pope John Paul II. The Way of the Cross to Srđ takes place every year before Easter when the Day of the Defenders of Dubrovnik is celebrated.
