Summary/Abstract: The report describes a unique (at least in the Croatian context) event named “Kliofest” which takes place in Zagreb and comprises a number of historical lectures, discussions, exhibitions, and book presentations. The event was held for the fifth time on May 8 to 11, 2018, and was jointly organized by thirteen different scientific institutions and associations led by Professor Damir Agičić of the Faculty of Arts of the Zagreb University. This year’s event was a reminder of anniversaries ending with an “8” and related to Croatia, the territory of former Yugoslavia, and also to some European and global events. The Czech Republic was represented by a fairly numerous group of historians, but the professional dialogue over the common pastwould have benefited from a higher number of colleagues from other countries of former Yugoslavia.
