"Burning" of charcoal, as basic or an additional activity, das today almost completely disappeared. However, archival data, travel writings and notes witness on a rather common tradition in this region, lasting for several centuries, and the relevant readings confirm it in an almost identical from, not only in the neighboring area, but also in wider region of Europe. The recent field research has confirmed the continuity of this tradition whit several charcoal burning families, who engage in this demanding activity every year and build charcoal kilns (ugljenice, karbunice, kope, vuglenice), mostly in the regions of Istria, Gorski Kotar and Hrvatsko Zagorje. Following the examples from the Western Europe, today there exists a tendency to "conserve" and "revitalize" charcoal burning in Nature Parks, or maybe even in ethno (eco) open air museums.
