Blazh Baromich was a Croatian printer, calligrapher from Senj. In 1494, only 50 years after the invention of the printing press, he founded the second oldest Croatian printing house. Blazh is one of the most important figures in Croatian cultural history. After printing the breviary, Baromich returned to Senj and the following year acquired all the necessary machines for the organization of the printing house. On August 7, 1494, the first and most valuable work of the Senj printing house Misal was printed. The Missal is a book in which all the texts used in the Mass for the whole liturgical year are collected. The language of the missal is Croatian-Church Slavonic. There is no surviving printing press today, but you can view the exhibit at the city museum.
