This master's thesis presents an overview of beliefs in supernatural beings in the Republic of Poljica. The thesis provides descriptions of fairies, witches, wolves and other supernatural beings and their actions. The data presented in this thesis is the result of the research conducted in March 2016 and February 2017 in the area of Middle and Upper Poljica. The records of supernatural beings are mostly descriptive. The obtained descriptions are compared with the "Poljica" monograph but the question of how the informant himself explains supernatural beings and whether he believes in them is also examined. In addition, the thesis also answers the question of whether supernatural beings play a role in the construction of social norms, entertainment and socialization and whether they have a pedagogical function in this area.
