One of the nicest examples of mrgar (sheep-trap) of the Croatian coast, whose shape reminds of a stone flower, can be found North-East of the town of Baška on the island of Krk. It is best preserved piece of coastal pastoral architecture, making it ethnologically significant. The mrgar is a sort of a sheep-trap, used by shepherds for collecting and catching sheep after the summer pasture period has ended, and can be found on our islands. Veli mrgar is considered to be the most beautiful of them. Today, it represents a memory of Krk's tradition of sheep and goat-breeding, that used to be very rich. Although there are still people on the island of Krk dealing with sheep-breeding, this branch of traditional economy is slowly on the decline. A group of ethnology and architecture students conducted a field work research under the supervision of professors Boris Morsan and Tomo Vinšćak back in 1995, with aim of producing architectural and photo documentation of some examples of pastoral architecture. The authors of the architectural design presented in this paper are Barbara Čubranić, Aneta Mudronja and Tamara Pungaršek.
