Following the footsteps of the Bunjevci

Bunjevci: "They presumably originated from western Herzegovina, from where they migrated to Dalmatia, and from there to Lika and Bačka in the 16th and 17th century. Today, the largest concentration of Bunjevci is in the ethnically mixed city of Subotica, which is their cultural and political centre. Traditionally, Bunjevci of Bačka are associated with land and farming. Large, usually isolated farms in the Northern Bačka called Salaši, are a significant part of their identity. Most of their customs celebrate the land, harvest and horse breeding." Folklorna Grupa Mladi Hrvati - Clifton Hill - Početna | Facebook  

Hungary, Bunjevac House: "The folk culture of multi-cultural Bácska was enriched with a characteristic colour by the Bunjevac, who settled in the region at the end of the 17th century, spoke a Croatioan dialect and were Roman Catholics. The permanent exhibition ‘Around Baja’ of the ethnographic group of Baja’s Türr István Museum offers a taste of their material and cultural legacy, among other ethnic groups living or having lived here (the Sokac, Germans, the Székelys of Bukovina, Hungarians from northern Hungary, the southernmost Hungarian groups from Sárköz and Kalocsa) at the Bunjevac House, the regional museum of Southern Bács-Kiskun county. The characteristic dwelling of the county’s rural architecture belongs to the so-called central Hungarian type. Regarding the floor-plan, it has a room, a kitchen and another room, with an added larder and a stable."

The Ethno-Salaš (farm) Balažević in Tavankut (Vojvodina/Serbia): traditional type of farm in the Pannonian Plain region, particularly in Bačka (family house, barn, stable and granary, surrounded by arable land and pastures), has also a permanent straw art exhibition. BEC
