Faust Vrančić (1551-1617)
Mythical person of Croatian history, Renaissance representative, polyhistoric, inventor, writer and lexicographer. The most famous, and in technical literature often mentioned, is his parachute construction – “Homo volans” (flying man) published in “Machinae Novae”. Another significant work is the multilingual dictionary “Dictionarium quinque nobilissimarum Europae linguarum”, one of the first vocabularies of this kind in the world
In Šepurina, on the north side right next to the new parish church, is its summer mansion. A very beautiful building is probably a work of a good architect of that time. Today there are living descendants of the Draganić-Vrančić family.
According to his wish, Faust Vrancic was buried in the church in Prvic Luka.
