Save

It is located in the Venetian fortress "Komuna", in Komiža, and contains a rich collection of original items of fishing boats and fishing equipment belonging to local fishermen, known for centuries as the best on the Adriatic.

In addition, there is a collection of fishing tools, used for fish processing, highly developed in the past. Among the exhibits, special attention is drawn to the replica of the famous Komizha fishing boat, called "Gajeta Falkusha".

FALKUSHA → unique Komizha boats nine meters long and less than three meters wide with a mast nine meters high. The ship could carry six fishermen and nearly eight tons of fish. They were mostly made of pine forest, brought from the island of Svetac, which is considered to be of the highest quality. During favorable winds, boats could reach the island of Palagruza in six hours reaching a speed of ten nautical miles per hour. The last original falconer "Cicibela" sank in a strong storm, in August 1986. Fortunately, the tradition has been revived and today three new boats are used in tourism.
