The Outsiders, by Joomboos: First Bilingual Teen Series (Trailer, Episode 1)

June 19, 2022 - An interesting and innovative initiative from the hit YouTube channel, JoomBoos, as they launch 'The Outsiders', the first bilingual teen series in the region. Watch the trailer and first episode below. Finding a more global audience and reaching the diaspora has always been a challenge for Croatian-language media, and one of the reasons why I enjoy running TCN so much. There is so much amazing content taking place in Croatia every day all over the country, the majority of which sadly remains in the Croatian language, and as such is only consumed by a tiny percentage…

Neretva River Mouth Again an Attraction for Ornithologists and Bird Watchers

June 18, 2022 - The Neretva River mouth remains one of the best destinations for bird watching in Croatia, though it's hardly being promoted as such.  To the great surprise of ornithologists and nature lovers in the Parila lagoon, a great white pelican nestling (Pelecanus onocrotalus) appeared three years ago. It is a bird species that was presumed to have become extinct in the entire Republic of Croatia in the 1950s due to uncontrolled hunting and fishing and the reclamation of wetlands, which damaged ornithological habitats. However, pelicans have appeared at the mouth of the Neretva for the last five…
