May the 28th, 2021 - Croatia is set to follow in the footsteps of multiple European countries such as the United Kingdom who have made the possibility of testing for the novel coronavirus at home an option for a long time now. While the move will relieve the pressure on testing centres and just be more convenient in general, where will Croatian home coronavirus test results be actually accepted? As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, a member of the Management Board of Medika, Jakov Radosevic, was a recent guest on New Day/Novi Dan and commented on the introduction of rapid tests for…

Croatian Demographic Crisis Continues with 20,000 People Lost Annually

May the 28th, 2021 - The coronavirus crisis might be the ''crisis of the moment'' as morbid as that sounds, but the Croatian demographic crisis is never far from the surface. The issues with people not only leaving but dying in Croatia are dire, and with losses of 20,000 people per year, plus emigration, the country is in a horrendous position demographically. As Poslovni Dnevnik/Ana Blaskovic writes, the number one topic which needs to be discussed is demography because Croatia at the very end of the world in terms of demographic trends, warned Marin Strmota from the Faculty of Economics…

Diary of a Croatian Lawsuit: 50 Lawyers, No Secretary, No Hearing

May 27, 2021 - Now I know why Croatian justice takes forever - there is a shortage of legal secretaries. Welcome to Diary of a Croatian Lawsuit, ongoing commentary on the elusive plaintiff, the Croatian National Tourist Board against the defendent, Paul David Raymond Bradbury.  When I decided to start a section on TCN called Croatian Bureaucracy, a Love Story, I really didn't think I would be writing about lawsuits filed against me.  Little did I know that being sued in Croatia would be as fascinating as this. And so far, I have only spent 3 minutes inside a courtroom.…

Pay It Forward, the Croatian Way: 3 Croatian Gift-Giving Rules You Should Follow

May 29, 2021 -  Forrest Gump has famously said that life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you are going to get. Well, if you are Croatian, you do. And you won't get to eat it, either. A humorous look into the Croatian philosophy of gift-giving. Croatians are, in general, a generous bunch. Although they may seem stand-offish at first, once they accept you as one of their own, there are very few things they would not be prepared to do for you. Thus, there will inevitably come a time when they will make some…

Peacocks in Split: Dozens of Beautiful Birds Walk and Fly Around The City

May 27, 2021 - Peacocks in Split have almost become domestic animals because dozens of individuals and beautiful birds walk and fly around the city without restrictions. Jutarnji List reports, while some enjoy their colors and others interfere with sleep, city services are just figuring out how to move them away from important roads, where they become a danger.  "People say they are bothered by their cries in the early morning. They scream at dawn, and people can't sleep because of them," Maja told Nova TV. Peacocks have been in the Gripe Fortress area for decades. "They come here from different neighborhoods; it's…

How Much Did Zagreb's Andrija Stampar Institute Make on PCR Tests?

May the 27th, 2021 - Zagreb's Andrija Stampar Institute has been a very popular destination of late, more so since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic at the start of 2020. While popular, it wasn't for the right reasons and lines and lines of cars full of people waiting to get PCR tests there were a common sight during the pandemic. Just how much did the Institute earn as a result? PCR tests aren't cheap and that has been an understandable bone of contention for the public not only in Croatia but abroad. The fact that a swab up the…

Racism in Croatia Before and During the Time of Corona - My Experience

May 26, 2021 - Untold stories of how fear and panic that came with the COVID-19 pandemic influenced even the usually peaceful and welcoming people of Croatia. A first-hand account of racism in Croatia pre and post pandemic.  Racism is not very rampant in Croatia, however, it still does exist. It is not widely talked about because racism in Croatia is subtle, and most of it is being committed unknowingly and without ill-intent. Even before the pandemic, non-Caucasian foreigners in Croatia would at one point come across racism - usually, in the form of racial microaggression. Although this term has…

Spanish Party Team in Split: Spanish Youth Tries the Croatian Coast

June 2, 2021 - One TCN intern spoke to three people from different regions in Spain about their expat experience in Split. Croatia is an easy county to adapt to Spaniards because they don't really need to adapt a lot. The climate is similar on the Mediterranean coast and the culture has a common Catholic base. Meanwhile, it's not the same thing and they value their experience from living in Dalmatia. My Croatian boss told me about his mate, a Split journalist, who once wrote that the best city in the world was... not Split, but San Sebastian located in…
