    Church of St.Mary,Roman Catholic Parish,Suho Polje

    by elae Written Jan 17, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tis new Church was built after the war by Roman Catholics. The old one was burnt down by Serbian soldiers in the World War II. and in the last war 1992-1995. It was unrecognizable the same as the villages around the church so the villagers built this new one!!!Main celebration in this church is held on 15.8. every year when a lot of pilgrims from the region come to this holy place!

    Iz povijesti župe Suho Polje- history of the parish Suho polje

    Do 1870. bila je cjelokupna Kupreška visoravan u vjerskom i crkvenom pogledu jedinstvena, bila je jedna vjernièka zajednica: župa Kupres. Buduæi da se broj župljana neprestance umnožavao, osjetila se potreba djelidbe župe. Kapelanija je 1873. proglašena župom. U stotridesetgodišnjem svom životnom vijeku imala je župa Suho Polje, u kojoj od poèetka djeluju bosanski franjevci a sada je vodi fra Kazimir Doliæ, puno vedrih i tmurnih dana, radosnih i tužnih dogaðaja, puno se toga dogodilo i promijenilo. No, jedno je sigurno: najstandardniji njezin suputnik bilo je stradanje. I ljudi i materijalnih dobara. Kao i cijela Kupreška visoravan, naprimjer, teško je stradavala u sva tri rata u 20. stoljeæu; u Drugom svjetskom i u nedavnom ratu bila je potpuno iseljena, njezina župna crkva paljena i rušena…

    Ipak, žilavi i neuništivi Kuprešani su se uvijek iznova i puni nade vraæali na svoja pradjedovska ognjišta, u krvi i znoju poèinjali život ispoèetka te, ionako raskošnu, uspijevali svoju visoravan uèiniti još ljepšom. Nadajmo se da æe i obilježavanje ove obljetnice župe Suho Polje pomoæi u tom smislu.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Znacajan je nalaz iz ranog broncanog doba s Kupreškog polja, radi se o prapovijesnom grobu sa pokojnikom sahranjenim u drveni sanduk.Najvrjedniji nalaz muzeja je tumul (zemljani grob) s Kupreške visoravni koji datira od 1660. prije Krista, a smješten je u arheološkoj zbirci.

    The skeleton is found in one of the many tumulus in Kupres ! Famous archeologist ALOJZ BENAC found it 1975.

    It is kept in Franjevaèki muzej i galerija Gorica - Livno.

    the ruines of the old church of The Holy Family

    by elae Written Dec 23, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the old catholic church ruined by Serbian soldiers during the war in Kupres 1992-1995.
    There are no words to describe this act and even if Croatian catholics buid a new church just on the other side of the street, 50 meters from the ruines, these ruines will stay here and be the testimony of all the suffering of innocent people during the war.

    the new church of Holy Family

    by elae Written Dec 23, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the new Church of the HOLY FAMILY in Kupres. It is just a few meters from the old one, crushed in war by Serbian soldiers during the war in Bosnia 1992-1995, when Kupres was occupied by Serbian army and Bosnian Croatians and Bosniaks were forced to leave their homes. When the Croatian people came back from the exile they built this wonderful new church of Holy Family with their love, money and volunteering, with the help of many friends and donators.
