Sažetak During the centuries the region of Vrlika has been developing as a natural and cultural unit. Present-day administrative limits of the region correspond to the traditional ones, which have, for the most part, been based on its folk culture. In everyday life it survived up to the early 1960s. On the other hand, its original and indigenous forms, particularly its traditional costumes, have always attracted both artists and experts. It is therefore one of the most dealt with and praised ethnographic units of Dalmatian hinterland.
