Morcic is a decoration in the form of a Moor's head, which serves as a protection against evil for the sailors. It's considered the best souvenir from Croatia.
Morcic (Morčić) is earrings, rings, brooches, pendants, bracelets and statuettes in the form of a Moor's head with a turban. There are several legends about the appearance of these decorations, but until now no one can say exactly how morcic has appeared in Croatia.
The most interesting product in the form of a Moor's head is considered earrings, many travellers like to buy them in memory of Croatia. You can purchase morcic in the souvenir shops, and in the jewellery stores, where the earrings and other artefacts will be made of precious metals.
