May 14, 2021 - Croatian Museums will Celebrate International Museum Day on May 18th alongside their colleagues worldwide. May 18th is International Museum Day.

Museums have had to struggle with the inability to work properly within the last year. COVID-related restrictions and lack of visitors took a toll on…

Defence Minister Mario Banožić Expects Decision on Fighter Jets This Month

ZAGREB, 14 May, 2021 - Defence Minister Mario Banožić said on Friday he expected a decision on the best offer of multipurpose fighter jets to be made this month. We were in a time of earthquakes and the pandemic, and perhaps the communication with the bidding countries did not take place when one wanted, he told the press in Petrinja.

Asked when the decision would be made and what the deadlines…

May 14, 2021 -The European Archaeology Days (EAD) at the Archaeological Museum Zagreb, held on June 18-20 and organised by the French Culture Ministry, and the French National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research (INRAP), brings all things archaeological to the Croatian capital.

However, as the Museum continued to stand the test of time past the 19th-century tragedy, it's great to see that it resisted last year's troubles as well. Not only is it open, but it will also host European Archaeology Days…

Giving Back to Sport: Mark Viduka Joins the Expanding SPORTYN Team

Zagreb, May 14, 2021 - An old-fashioned type of center-forward, Mark Viduka terrorised Premier League defences leading the line for Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Newcastle United for almost a decade from 2000 to 2009. His was a glittering and prolific career which netted 258 goals in only 507 appearances, and included captaining his country, Australia, in the 2006 World Cup, surely one of the greatest honours for any sportsman.
