Droplet and Stone
, theatrical performance for children and adults, performed by Puppet Theater LET.
How do droplets of water dissolve stone and create caves? How do stalagmites and stalactites form? We will find out in this delightful shadow performance in which all is magical, mysterious, and wet.
This is the story of water droplets and calcite crystals, which together create unusual landscape–rock or rubble¬–from limestone, and the performance itself came about thanks to the picture books of Damir Lacković, Head Curator of the Croatian Natural History Museum of Zagreb, and illustrator Trpimir Vedriš.
Special thanks to Puppet Theater LET and the Croatian Natural History Museum of Zagreb.

Which is louder–a didgeridoo or a waterfall?

The traditional Aboriginal instrument didgeridoo has its own skilled musicians even in Croatia. Listen to the sound of this large, unusual instrument–for which the masters of playing learn circular breathing, just like water, which continually flows–around the hidden but noisy sculpture-fountain by sculptor Mirosław Bałka on the south platform of the Museum.
Special thanks to Dubravko Lapaine (didgeridoo solo) and the Didgiland association.

Canals on Mars? Ice on Saturn?

Observation of planets with the help of telescopes and members of Beskraj Astronomy Association and the forum of the portal will reveal to us the truth and misconceptions “about planets of water” and “planets without water.” Although you haven’t fallen from Mars, surely you will be interested in what “polar caps” are and what “canals” are on this planet, and what the “fingers of ice” of always intriguing Saturn are. Find out first hand by conversing with our astronomers.
The observation will be canceled on account of cloudy weather.
Special thanks to the members of Beskraj Astronomy Association and the forum.
