On the island of Murter, when asking for a girl’s hand in marriage it was a tradition to plant 50 olive trees. All young men who truly wanted to show their love would do this with no difficulty. However, not every father was ready to give his daughter’s hand in marriage, so one young man was compelled to make substantial efforts to prove his love. The task he received involved planting 365 olive trees on one of the islands of Kornati.

His pertinacity paid well; olive trees were planted and although it took him ten years, the maid became his wife.
