- "Croatian Tales of Long Ago"
"Croatian Tales" is by far one of the best collections of flash-animated interactive stories to date.
I personally feel that the collection of fairy tales enriches the lives of everyone while at the same time promotes a multicultural experience.
Helena Bulaja has done an amazing job of collecting a group of talented and unique animators to bring to life fairy tales from the Croatian literary work of Ivana Brlic Mazuranic.
I eagerly await Helena's next project.

Founding of the Academy: The first half of the nineteenth century saw the emergence of the Croatian National Revival, whose ideals challenged the existing imperial absolutism and feudal order of the Austrian Empire.
