Friends of Finnish Prime Minister Show Their Breasts to Jadrolinija Ferry

August 24, 2022 - The influencer who was photographed topless in the residence of the Finnish Prime Minister, Sabina Särkkä, also partied on the Croatian coast. This time, a lucky Jadrolinija ferry was greeted with a peek of her breasts.

As Index writes, on her TikTok profile, there is a video published in May this year, in which the pretty model, together with her friends, shows her breasts to the Jadrolinija ferry that passes by the ship they were on.

@sabinasarkka Tässä on ollut vähä kaikennäköistä @Julia Toivola #foryoupage @Lotta Soini @Dr. Rannisto ♬ alkuperäinen ääni - Sabina Särkkä

It seems that the girls had a good time on the Croatian coast, and for their gesture, the captain “rewarded” them with a honk of the ship's siren. Some users asked in the comments whether Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin had fun with them, but they did not get an answer.

The Finnish prime minister also apologised for the photo

As a reminder, a photo circulating on social media shows two influencers kissing, covering their bare breasts with the words “Finland” from the Prime Minister's official residence in Helsinki. The Finnish prime minister also apologised for that photo.

“I don't think the picture is appropriate. I apologise for that. There should not have been such a photo, but otherwise, nothing extraordinary happened at the party”, Marin told reporters, confirming that the sign was from her residence.

Marin (36) said that the photo was taken at a private party with her friends after a music festival in July. “We were in the sauna, bathing and spending time together”, Marin said about the party.

Jadrolinija Transports 1.1 Million Passengers in August 2022 Alone

August the 23rd, 2022 - The Croatian ferry company Jadrolinija is edging ever closer to the record numbers it and we all saw back during the pre-pandemic year of 2019, having transported 1.1 million passengers during the month of August so far alone.

As Morski/Alenka Juricic Bukarica writes, this year's tourist season, in terms of physical indicators, is coming extremely close to the eye-watering figures we saw back during the record year of 2019, and therefore the traffic in passenger ship transport is also returning, writes Rijeka portal Novi list.

As such, from the beginning of the year to August the 15th, Jadrolinija's fleet transported an impressive 7,850,000 passengers in total, which is just four percent less compared to the same period back in 2019, as well as 2,248,000 vehicles, which is 7.7 percent more than 2019.

During the month of August alone, more precisely from August the 1st to the 18th, Jadrolinija transported a total of 1,150,000 passengers, which is just 9.1 percent less than in 2019, and 400,000 vehicles, which is 3.5 percent less than during the record pre-pandemic year of 2019.

''We are approaching the figures we saw back in 2019. On certain Jadrolinija ferry lines, vehicle traffic is surpassing the figures from 2019, but passenger traffic is still lagging slightly behind.

The reason for the smaller number of passengers is the absence of larger tourist groups that regularly came to Croatia by bus in earlier years, Jadrolinija pointed out, adding that the lines with the most passengers are Valbiska - Merag, Brestova - Porozina, Prizna - Zigljen, Zadar - Preko, Split - Supetar and Split - Stari Grad (Hvar).

''In this jubilee year, when Jadrolinija celebrates a whole 75 years of existence, we are optimistic and hope for a successful season and that we manage to reach the results from the record-breaking year of 2019,'' Jadrolinija concluded.

Croatian Maritime Traffic 50% Better Than 2021, Charter Outdoes 2019

August the 13th, 2022 - Croatian maritime traffic is 50% stronger than it was last year, and the charter sector is blowing the record, pre-pandemic year of 2019 out of the water, no pun intended.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, almost 8.5 million passengers were boarded and disembarked in various Croatian seaports throughout the second quarter of this year, which is 55.7 percent of the number last year, according to official statistics. At the same time, 8.2 million passengers were transported on ferries and passenger ships, which is a 50.8 percent increase compared to the same period back in 2021.

The number of vessels in Croatian maritime traffic also grew...

The increase in passengers was achieved in all major Croatian ports, as well as in international traffic. 32.5 percent more passenger vehicles and 127.7 percent more buses were loaded and unloaded on ships compared to the same quarter last year.

Out of the total number of passengers in Croatian sea ports, 255 thousand of them disembarked from cruise ships and visited, among others, the Dalmatian ports of Dubrovnik, Split and Zadar. Considering the fact that back during the second quarter of 2021, there were only 12 thousand passengers aboard cruise ships, after that period there was a noticeable return of cruise ships to Croatian seaports, the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) notes.

The total turnover of goods increased by 14.5 percent when compared to the same period back in 2021, and the port of Ploce had the highest growth of 55.5 percent, followed by Split with a growth of 42 percent. Furthermore, in the first half of 2022, the total number of ships arriving at Croatian seaports increased by 13.4 percent, the total traffic of passengers by 46 percent, and the total traffic of goods by 9.7 percent.

Although Croatian maritime traffic in tourist ports was significant even during the global coronavirus pandemic, and therefore the nautical sector represented the strongest segment of tourism, this summer season is bringing with it a new increase. In July 2022, there were 120,000 arrivals and 770,000 overnight stays in the nautical charter, which is a 23 percent increase in arrivals and 5 percent in overnight stays compared to July 2019.

Over the first six months of 2022 with revenues of 98 million kuna, the national chain of marinas (ACI) exceeded the revenue earned back in 2019 by 4.6 million kuna, meaning that results achieved are 16.4 million kuna or 20 percent higher than they were back during 2021.

In addition to all of the above, after last year's 44 million kuna worth of investments in infrastructure and services, in the first six months of 2022 alone, ACI exceeded that amount by an impressive 3.9 million kuna, realising new investments totalling 47.9 million kuna.

ACI claims that the income is the result of investments, thorough and adequate preparation for the season in all of Croatia's ACI marinas, and the easing of measures introduced during the coronavirus pandemic. ACI achieved a positive financial result in the first half of the year in the amount of 3.2 million kuna, while the realised EBITDA for the first half of the year amounted to 36.2 million kuna in total.

Croatia Ferry Guide 2022: From Zadar to Dugi Otok, Ugljan, Iž, and More

July 2, 2022 - We're going to take a look at the destinations you can visit by ferry from the main Croatian ports. In this fifth installment of our Croatia Ferry Guide 2022, where to go from the port of Zadar?

When advertising the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian islands abroad, the experience of being on board a sailboat, yacht, or catamaran is usually highlighted. However, there is no destination a Croatian ferry can't reach, and why not mention that it's totally worth saving a good amount of euros on sailboat rentals and crews?

Today we tell you more about the island destinations you can reach from the ferry port of Zadar.

First of all, how to buy your ferry tickets? There are three ways. The first is via the official Jadrolinija website. In it, you can not only see the updated sailing schedules, but you can also buy your tickets online. Simply choose the port of departure, the port of destination, and the date of your trip, and you will find the available times. Once you have chosen the time and the number of tickets, in addition to completing all your personal information, you can proceed to pay for your tickets online with a credit or debit card.

The second way is through the official Jadrolinija mobile app, available on the Apple App Store and Google Playstore for Android. The application is very easy to use and, just like on the website, just select the port of departure and you will be able to see the ports that you can travel to from the one you selected. The process is very similar, and you will find that it is even more comfortable and intuitive to use. Payment also allows the use of credit and debit cards.

Finally, the third type of payment is the most traditional and has its benefits. All ferry ports in Croatia have a Jadrolinija office, where you can go to buy your tickets in person. Sometimes one can be a bit confused before buying their tickets both on the website and in the app, so having a Jadrolinija agent to guide you is a great help.

Where is the Zadar ferry port located? Most of the ferries departing from Zadar depart from the east coast of Zadar's Old Town. You can find it on the map below.

Božava (Dugi Otok)

Croatia Ferry Guide 2022: From Hvar Town to Bol, Korčula, Vis, and More

July 2, 2022 - We're going to take a look at the destinations you can visit by ferry from the main Croatian ports. In this fifth installment of our Croatia Ferry Guide 2022, where to go from the port of Hvar Town?

When advertising the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian islands abroad, the experience of being on board a sailboat, yacht, or catamaran is usually highlighted. However, there is no destination a Croatian ferry can't reach, and why not mention that it's totally worth saving a good amount of euros on sailboat rentals and crews?

We know that in the past editions of this series of articles we have covered the destinations reachable from coastal cities such as Rijeka, Sibenik, Split, or Dubrovnik, but this does not mean that your ferry trips have to be limited to the classic trip from coastal city to island. A great travel plan is to go to one island, from there to another, and so on... that's where the concept of island hopping comes from. And so, today we tell you more about the island destinations you can reach from the ferry port of Hvar Town.

First of all, how to buy your ferry tickets? There are three ways. The first is via the official Jadrolinija website. In it, you can not only see the updated sailing schedules, but you can also buy your tickets online. Simply choose the port of departure, the port of destination, and the date of your trip, and you will find the available times. Once you have chosen the time and the number of tickets, in addition to completing all your personal information, you can proceed to pay for your tickets online with a credit or debit card.

The second way is through the official Jadrolinija mobile app, available on the Apple App Store and Google Playstore for Android. The application is very easy to use and, just like on the website, just select the port of departure and you will be able to see the ports that you can travel to from the one you selected. The process is very similar, and you will find that it is even more comfortable and intuitive to use. Payment also allows the use of credit and debit cards.

Finally, the third type of payment is the most traditional and has its benefits. All ferry ports in Croatia have a Jadrolinija office, where you can go to buy your tickets in person. Sometimes one can be a bit confused before buying their tickets both on the website and in the app, so having a Jadrolinija agent to guide you is a great help.

Where is the Hvar ferry port located? The port of Hvar Town is located at the end of its long riva. You can find it on the map below.

June the 26th, 2022 - The popular cross-border Zadar-Ancona Jadrolinija line is now back in function which is sure to delight all those seeking a trip from this coastal Dalmatian town across the Adriatic Sea to neighbouring Italy and back again.

As Morski writes, the "Marco Polo" Jadrolinija ferry is set to sail on the line Zadar-Ancona Jadrolinija line, as was recently announced by the aforementioned company.

In the period until July the 15th, the Zadar-Ancona Jadrolinija line will sail once a week, and from July the 18th, it will make that journey twice a week. The line will be maintained until September the 9th this year, according to Jadrolinija's statement.

Back in April, the Coastal and Liner Transport Agency gave Jadrolinja the consent to maintain the international line between Zadar and Ancona throughout the aforementioned period in 2022.

The timetable between the nearest part of the Croatian and Italian coasts across the Adriatic Sea will be maintained with three different traffic dynamics of the "Marco Polo" ferry, which will, during these 80 days, be engaged on the line between Split and Ancona.

Namely, in the period from June the 23rd to July the 17th and from September the 1st to the 9th, the ferry will operate once a week. The ferry will depart from Ancona on Thursday at 22:00, and will arrive in Zadar on Friday at 07:00. On the same day at 10:00, the ferry from Zadar will return to Ancona (17:00).

In the period from July the 18th to August the 18th, when the highest traffic of the Croatian summer tourist season is expected, the ferry will operate twice a week. It will depart from Zadar for Ancona on Mondays at 22:00 (with an arrival in Ancona on Tuesday at 07:00) and on Fridays at 10:00 (with an arrival in Ancona at 17:00). Departures from Ancona to Zadar are scheduled for Monday at 10:00 (arriving in Zadar at 18:00), and Thursday at 22:00 (arriving in Zadar at 07:00).

The third version of the sailing schedule along the Zadar-Ancona Jadrolinija line refers to the period from the 9th to the 26th of August, when two lines per week are also planned. Departure from Zadar will take place on Mondays and Fridays at 22:00 (arriving in Ancona on Tuesday and Saturday at 07:00), while the ferry from Ancona will depart for Zadar on Mondays and Fridays at 18:00 (with an arrival in Zadar on Mondays and Fridays at 10:00).

Croatia Ferry Guide 2022: From Dubrovnik to Korčula, Lopud, and More

June 21, 2022 - In the newest TCN series, we take a look at the destinations you can visit by ferry from the main Croatian ports. In this second installment of the Croatia Ferry Guide 2022, where to go from the port of Dubrovnik?

When advertising the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian islands abroad, the experience of being on board a sailboat, yacht, or catamaran is usually highlighted. However, there is no destination a Croatian ferry can't reach, and why not mention that it's totally worth saving a good amount of Euros on sailboat rentals and crews?

Today we tell you more about the island destinations you can reach from the ferry port of Dubrovnik.

First of all, how to buy your ferry tickets? There are three ways. The first is via the official Jadrolinija website. In it, you can not only see the updated sailing schedules, but you can also buy your tickets online.

Croatia Ferry Guide 2022: From Rijeka to Cres, Mali Lošinj, and More

June 21, 2022 - In the newest TCN series, we take a look at the destinations you can visit by ferry from the main Croatian ports. In this second installment of the Croatia Ferry Guide 2022, where to go from the port of Rijeka?

When advertising the Adriatic Sea and the Croatian islands abroad, the experience of being on board a sailboat, yacht, or catamaran is usually highlighted. However, there is no destination a Croatian ferry can't reach, and why not mention that it's totally worth saving a good amount of Euros on sailboat rentals and crews?

Today we tell you more about the island destinations you can reach from the ferry port of Rijeka. Did you know that the Jadrolinija company was founded in Rijeka in 1947?

First of all, how to buy your ferry tickets? There are three ways. The first is via the official Jadrolinija website. In it, you can not only see the updated sailing schedules, but you can also buy your tickets online. Simply choose the port of departure, the port of destination and the date of your trip, and you will find the available times.

Sometimes one can be a bit confused before buying their tickets both on the website and in the app, so having a Jadrolinija agent to guide you is a great help.

Where is the Rijeka ferry port located? The good news is that if you're in the city center, it won't be too far to find it. Also, if you arrive in Rijeka by ferry, you will already be well placed to get to know the city right away. If you happen to be along Rijeka's promenade, you will notice that a large pier stretches out in front of you: the famous Molo Longo. At the beginning of Molo Longo, between restaurants and offices, is the Jadrolinija agency. It's a good place to start as, as well as being able to buy your ferry tickets at that same office, you'll notice that the ferries depart right in front of the office. Take a look at the map below to see where the Rijeka ferry port is located.

Croatian Ferry and Bus Prices Increase as Summer Season Hits

June the 21st, 2022 - Croatian ferry and bus line prices are set to significantly increase as inflation continues to bite and the cost of fuel keeps on increasing. Croatian ferry and bus line operators have asked customers for their understanding, and their forgiveness during a time which is proving difficult for all pockets.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, a lot of people from Zadar like to joke about swimming across to Ugljan instead of paying for the ferry, but all jokes aside, transportation on a Croatian ferry to the Adriatic islands this summer will cost thirty percent more than it did last year.

"I think it's a really great price (speaking sarcastically) and we'll end up al going bankrupt, but for as long as it's like that, it's going to be like that. You only live once,'' said Pavao from Zagreb.

Many passengers, however, are now thinking twice about whether they can go on day trips to nearby islands at all with prices for a Croatian ferry ticket being so high. Shipowners themselves are also in troubled waters, no pun intended. The catamaran that sailed on the line between Split - Bol - Makarska - Korcula - Mljet - Dubrovnik will not sail at all this season. The reason is cited as excessive costs, writes Dnevnik.hr.

The private shipowner has issued an apology to all would-have-been passengers, offering a refund for any tickets already purchased. Unlike commercial lines, public service lines are co-financed for the year with more than 320 million kuna from the state treasury. Nevertheless, in order to sail, part of the burden is paid by customers.

"Of course, shipowners can't incur losses even though they have contracts, they must be at a certain zero both according to the law and the regulations of the European Commission, including the real profit in doing their job," explained Paula Vidovic.

They added that prices have not changed in the last twenty years, and in the last few months, the increase has been felt by bus transport companies as well.

For the Zadar - Vodice or Vodice - Zadar section, tickets were purchased a few days ago, and the difference in price is 15 kuna. The global coronavirus pandemic has thinned bus lines out totally, and fuel prices dictate ticket prices, which depend on both the carrier and the cost-effectiveness of the line. The unprofitability of local lines has plagued these companies for years, and rising fuel prices, they say, have only added fuel to an already fairly out of control fire.

"Certainly with this announcement of an additional increase in fuel prices on Tuesday, we can expect additional corrections to the price of our services," concluded Vedran Tomicic from the Croatian Chamber of Commerce (HGK).

They see the solution either in subsidising all local lines or by introducing monthly tickets at the state level, following the example of some other European countries, in order to save public line transport, but also to stop the prices going wild.

Croatia Ferry Guide 2022: From Split to Hvar, Brač, Korčula, and more...

June 8, 2022 - In the newest TCN series, we take a look at the destinations you can visit by ferry from the main Croatian ports. In this first installment of the Croatia Ferry Guide 2022, where to go from the port of Split?

Today we tell you more about the destinations you can reach from the ferry port of Split.

Where is the Split Ferry Port located? It is probably one of the best strategically positioned, as it is only a five-minute walk from the Riva. In addition, it is in the same area as the main bus and train stations, in case you need to board your ferry just when you arrive. Split's ferry port is one of the largest, and you'll want to make sure you check your ticket routing to find the right area to board your ferry or catamaran. Don't forget that in the port there is a screen that indicates where to find your ferry, as well as an office to answer any questions.

Ancona
