[LECTURE] Davor Rostuhar – Polar Dream

Davor Rostuhar: Polar DreamDear friends and visitors, Davor Rostuhar’s lecture “Polar Dream” is postponed for Friday, 27 July at 9pm. Thank you for understanding!

We are pleased to invite you to a multimedia lecture Polar Dream by Davor Rostuhar on Wednesday, 11 July at 9pm in Stari Grad Museum (garden of the Biankini palace).

What does a man have to do to achieve his dream?

In order to find the best answer to this question, Davor Rostuhar engaged in the big challenge, in the great research that took him to the very end of the world. He became the first Croat who came on foot from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole. The expedition lasted 47 days, during which he crossed 1163 km alone, without food delivery, pulling all the equipment on sledge that weighed 135 kg and without the use of external energy (wind, dog sled, snowmobile etc.) Davor has been preparing for the expedition for two years. During the preparation, he visited people living on the far north of the planet: Inuit in the north of Greenland, Nenets in the north of Siberia and Sami in the north of Scandinavia.

The multimedia lecture Polar dream is a combination of intimate audio-visual records of a man’s journey, who by realising his dream actually travels deep into himself. The entire process is documented, from the very beginning of the dream to the realisation of the same. The first part of the lecture will be about practical information, while the second part will feature a 30-minute documentary film to show what Davor went through on the expedition.

Davor Rostuhar has a number of successful projects and expeditions behind him, such as a bicycle trip from Zagreb to Egypt, a motorcycle trip from Zagreb to Cape Town, seven expeditions in the jungles of the Amazon and Papua, etc. He is the author of 6 travel books and a photographic project “National Geographic – Croatia from above”.

We look forward to your visit!
