The First Brothers from Croatia were initiated in 2005 in Trieste in the Lodge EXCALIBUR, Gran Loggia di Italia, Palazzo Vitelleschi, Rome.

 

At the end of 2006, Croatia's first Lodge LIBURNIA was founded in Rijeka,. In early 2012, a second Lodge ILIRIA was established in Rijeka, and then 2013, the first Lodge SAPIENTIA was established in Zagreb. After that, at the beginning of 2014, Lodge DALMATIA was founded in Split, and soon after that, at the beginning in 2015, Lodge in Osijek - ST. IVAN, and then 2016 the second Lodge in Zagreb - AEQUILIBRIUM. With this, the plan of opening Lodges in four major Croatian cities was accomplished. Profound and continuous activities in the field of proselytism exist. The intention is to work over the next year and bring the Light into one new Lodge, third one, in Rijeka.
