This Master’s Thesis deals with the issue of digitizing the intangible cultural heritage of the Republic of Croatia which is on UNESCO’s List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The goal is to find optimal ways of digitizing this type of heritage. The first, theoretical part of the thesis describes the process of digitization and its importance in the digital era, explaining the types and roles of cultural heritage today and the reasons why it is important to preserve and digitize it. Since the thesis is concerned with Croatian entries in the UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, all Croatian entries are listed and each is given a short introduction – what it entails, why it is listed and so on. The research part of the thesis deals with the ways of digitizing and the problems that can be encountered during digitization of intangible heritage. Each entry on the list is given a proposal on the best way to digitize it, depending on its specific characteristics. At the end, by analysing all of the above, a conclusion is given in which the most suitable solutions are given.
