More Croatian fairy tales here

"Croatian Tales" [which was] produced by Bulaja naklada, that consists of eight animated/interactive stories, games and cartoons inspired by the famous fairytale book written in 1916 by Ivana Brlic Ma┼żuranic, who was called "Slavic Tolkien" and "Croatian Andersen", and was a candidate for the Nobel's Prize. The whole project was made in Macromedia Flash. The project editor in chief, Helena Bulaja, gathered together seven teams of animators, illustrators, musicians, actors, translators, programmers etc. from different parts of the world and different traditions: from the US, Canada, Scotland, Australia, Denmark, Germany, Russia, France etc, and the eight team was formed in Croatia. The result was an exciting adventure, because artists from different backgrounds, who were not familiar with Ma┼żuranic's work and Croatia at all, and who never met each other in 'real' life before, made completely new interpretations of those beautiful fairytales. "Croatian Tales" project was awarded on many international festivals (FlashForward, FlashintheCan, Net Festival Rio de Janeiro, Annecy, Ottawa, Montreux, Seoul...) [source]
