KK Split Starts Semifinals against Zadar with a Convincing Victory

May 20, 2022 - Shorter and Perkovic lead KK Split to a 74:64 (39:33) win in front of 1500 fans.

The KK Split basketball team has started well into this year's semi-final play-offs of the Croatian Championships against Dalmatian rival KK Zadar.  Both teams only needed 2 games to pass through the quarter-finals where Zadar eliminated Zabok and Split went through Škrljevo.

With well-rested and complete squads, the debut game was played in front of a very supportive atmosphere. Additionally to the regular supporters, 50 kids of K.K. Solin’s youth teams were invited as special guests and became witnesses to a high-level display from both sides. While all players started the game a little nervously and with a focus not to make mistakes, the defensive effort and intensity were at 100% right from the start.

The Yellows were able to rely on Shannon Shorter again as so often this season to give them confidence. The American guard scored the first five points for the home team and was always there with important points and eight rebounds when the game was close. The team from Zadar on the other side needed Justin Carter to contribute 16 points in order to stop the game from being decided early.

The guests made every effort to keep the game close and even had a few leads during the game and tied the game in the final quarter at 62:62 with five minutes left to play. However, Shannon Shorter was not the only sharpshooter in a yellow uniform tonight. Toni Perković’s 22 points coming off the bench and hitting 6 of 10 tries from three-point land were just too much for guest coach Vladimir Anzulović’s team to digest.

“We made an important step and finally played the home game against Zadar at the right level. After six or seven minutes of nervousness, we stabilized. I think that was the decisive factor that we kept the game under control," said the coach of Split, Srdjan Subotic to sum up the evening.

The first game of the best of 3 series bears great importance as from now on reigning champion Zadar is already with their backs to the wall. Split could finish the series with an away win in Zadar on Monday but even if they should lose in Zadar, they would have another shot at home.

Result by quarters: 74:64 (18:22, 21:13, 16:17, 19:12).

Referees: Josip Radojković, Alfred Jovović and Martin Vulić.

The Guardian Names Mediterranean Film Festival Split One of Europe's Best!

May 20, 2022 - The Guardian has included a Croatian film festival on the list of the 10 best European summer film festivals! The Mediterranean Film Festival Split (FMFS) starts in less than a month. 

"Croatia’s second-largest city has plenty of historic sights, museums and nightlife, and its stunning coastal setting makes for a particularly scenic film festival. During the day, screenings are at a cinema inside the walls of the 1,700-year-old Diocletian’s palace, a perfect base for sightseeing. As the name suggests, they focus on Mediterranean films that might be hard to access elsewhere. This is a festival that prides itself in its positive, friendly vibe and its parties, many held at the open-air cinema on Bačvice beach," writes The Guardian, which names Split in the company of other cities such as Venice, San Sebastián, Locarno, Annecy, and Karlovy Vary.

FMFS announces the biggest festival so far, with new programs and locations. The jubilee 15th edition of the favorite Dalmatian cultural event brings more films than ever screened at the Bačvice Open Air Cinema, Zlatna Vrata (Golden Gate) Cinema, on the plateau in front of the Youth Center and a new location - the northeastern bastion of Gripe Fortress.

FMFS is held from June 16 to 25. Split designer Karlo Kazinoti presented its visual identity.

"I wanted this year’s poster to be different in design from the previous years, but I wanted it to still tell its Mediterranean story. The poster is dominated by beach sand, a great inspiration to kids and grown-ups. It’s a fun material with which one can play games, build castles, and it can be mischievous if you let your hair down. The most popular activity is to bury ourselves in the sand and then emerge like a troublemaker, and since FMFS always covers us in films, like the sand, it will be a great pleasure and a challenge to see the entirety of this year’s program," said Kazinoti.

The Mediterranean Film Festival Split is held with the support of Creative Europe and its strand - MEDIA, for the first time, which the European Commission uses to support film festivals. 

"It is extremely important to us that this support is multiannual, and that means we have financial support for 2022 and 2023, which allows us to expand our program. So we have created “Parangal,” a program for films outside of the Mediterranean area, and we will offer films for all ages in our program for kids and young adults. Thanks to the support from Creative Europe, we will strengthen the industry program with a series of workshops and lectures for film industry professionals that are coming to Split for FMFS. All of this is guaranteed to bring back the ‘hubbub’ we have missed for the past two years," says director Alen Munitić who thanked FMFS partners, the Croatian Audiovisual Center, the city of Split, and the Split Tourist Board.

Festival tickets with access to multiple screenings can be purchased from May 26. Individual tickets will be released once the program is announced at the beginning of June. All ticket info can be found at www.fmfs.hr.

5+ Years Living in Split: Expat Kimmy Chan from Hong Kong

May 19, 2022 - In our new TCN series, we uncover the lives of expats that have spent over 5 years living in Split. Next up, meet Kimmy Chan from Hong Kong!

Two idyllic weeks on a Croatian beach is very different from the realities of full-time living. So what is it really like to live in Croatia as an expat? In a new series on TCN, we meet expats who have lived here for 5 years or more, to find out from them the good, the bad, and the ugly of 12-month living in Croatia. Next up, Kimmy Chan from Hong Kong!

1. Tell us firstly how you came to Croatia? What motivated you to choose this slice of paradise and how long have you now been here?

I am Kimmy Chan, from Hong Kong, and have been living in Split for 9 years. I received my Croatian citizenship last year. I came to Croatia in 2007 because of an internship through an international student exchange program. Back then I had to choose between Croatia, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Ukraine, and honestly, I had no idea what Croatia is like, so I Googled it and the first photo I saw was the iconic golden triangle of the Zlatni Rat Beach on Brač Island. “It’s BEAUTIFUL and I have to see it!” I said to myself and that’s how I started my story in Croatia. During the internship, I met the love of my life through a friend and we had a long-distance relationship for 5 years. In 2012, I relocated to Split from Hong Kong and got married the year after. Now I have 2 daughters and 2 bunnies

IMG_20210925_175338_1.jpeg

2. Looking back, what were your perceptions and expectations?

I actually experienced a lot of cultural shocks when I first came to Split in 2007. The first shock I had was on the very first day of my arrival. It was a Saturday and the supermarket back then closed at 2 pm on Saturdays and closed on Sundays. From that moment, I realized that Croatia is a country that cared more about family or rest time than money. The second thing that shocked me was the very limited choices for foreign cuisines. I remember there were only 1 Mcdonald's, 1 Mexican restaurant, and 1 Chinese restaurant in Split in 2007. Moreover, the menus in the fast-food stores and konoba everywhere were almost the same, and I wondered why people didn’t find it boring. Nevertheless, the biggest shock of all was the inefficient administration which is a well-known problem even for locals. I expected more European standards, working hard, diversity and open-mindedness in Split. 

Despite the cultural shocks, I have been constantly amazed by how much Croatian people love their country, sports (especially football of course), jokes, and history.

3. After 9 years here, how have those perceptions changed. Do you now view Croatia differently?

In the last 9 years of living in Split, I have witnessed improvements in terms of touristic offers, acceptance of foreigners, and administration. It is exciting to see that Split/Croatia is advancing, slowly but surely. I would say that having some of my perceptions or expectations changed is not only because of the city/country’s endeavor, but also because I got to know more about the culture, lifestyle, and historical reasons, and I tried to embrace and accept them. Moreover, I have children now, so the “pomalo” and simpler lifestyle in Split which I used to find too slow is now great for me and my family.

IMG_3758_2.jpeg

4. After your time year, the 3 things you love most about Croatia?

Water - I genuinely find the water in Croatia is very clean and I love drinking tap water in Split which is sweet and tasty. And of course, the Adriatic Sea is a gem.

Safety - Croatia is a very safe country. I feel safe walking alone at night, even on some quiet streets.

IMG_3692.jpeg

People - I am very impressed by how much Croatians love their country and how they are proud of their culture, food, nature, national teams, and so on. I met many Croatian families and they are all amazing hosts, always give the best to guests and make you feel welcomed. It may not be easy to be friends with locals at the beginning, but once the friendship is developed, they keep you dear to their hearts.

5. And the 3 things you would like to change.

The culture of “using connection”.  Ever since the beginning of my life in Croatia, I have heard so much from the locals about how everything is done through connection. From getting a place in public kindergarten to getting a job in government, many people find it normal to use connections to have shortcuts or even get the deal directly.

Parking issues in Split. There are not enough parking spots in Split. It is always a headache to find parking, especially in the center. There are many “creative” drivers who like to leave their cars somewhere they are not supposed to.

The real estate prices in Split are crazy for both rental and buying.

6. Given your experiences, what advice would you give to any would-be expat thinking of making the move?

Look up information from expat groups on social media and expatincroatia.com. They are very helpful and informative.

The administration and paperwork is complicated, so be patient and it is very likely that you need a native Croatian speaker (e.g. lawyer, translator, local friend) to help you deal with it. 

20140706_161057.jpeg

People from different regions in Croatia have different mentalities and work styles. In the southern part (Dalmatia), people, in general, are quite relaxed and less organised, so it is important to manage your expectation and find a place where you feel comfortable staying or work in.

7. The most beautiful place in Croatia, and why? 

I love Istria. Love the sea, the green, and colour houses. Istria is not very big but it has a lot to offer.

Your favourite moment of your time in Croatia?

One of my favourites is the sunset dolphin-watching tour in Rovinj. The sunset was romantic, the host was friendly and so passionate to share homemade liquor with guests, the dolphins were lovely and Rovinj is a beautiful town. The tour was a very special experience.

Wizz Air is still negotiating with certain airports in Croatia, so there is a chance that more new routes will be announced in the peak season, although the chances are getting smaller as we approach the summer.

Currently, 16 international lines to Split and Dubrovnik are available for booking. 

Lines from Split to:

Vienna, from 1 June, three times a week, until the end of September,

Busy Summer Ahead: Croatia Readies for 2022 Water Polo World Championships and Euros

May 18, 2022 - The 2022 Water Polo World Championships will be held in Hungary from June 18 to July 3, 2022, with Croatia playing the first part of the competition in Debrecen, where Group B will compete. Croatia will play against Greece (June 21), Germany (June 23), and Japan (June 25).

"Over time, according to FINA rules, we will narrow down that list and determine the final 13 players who will travel to the World Champs in Hungary. As we know, we will never have shorter preparations and less time to work with a very young team," said Ivica Tucak, who persists in his intention to create a new, significantly rejuvenated national team.

"Nevertheless, we will continue to be the team with the greatest ambitions. Those preparations before leaving for the World Champs lasting only ten days, as well as the end of the club season in which our players come as exhausted as possible, are not in our favor, but it's the same for us and other national teams," Tucak added. 

"We are gathering a new national team, so I hope that in that extremely short time we will be able to correct the mistakes we noticed at the World League tournament in Podgorica and are ready to welcome the World Champs. However, the main focus of the Croatia water polo team this summer will be the European Championships in Split (August 27 - September 10) and a rather busy schedule awaits us this summer," Tucak said.

Preparations for the World Championships begin on June 14 in Pula with the Croatia - Italy match, followed by a short gathering in Zagreb and a trip to Hungary. European Championship preparations start on July 18 in Kranj and Maribor, followed by the tournament in Cagliari, preparations in Šibenik, and a tournament in Belgrade. Finally, on August 24, Croatia gathers for the European Championships in Split.

Shocking Split Taxi Experience Turns Positive thanks to Help of Local Facebook Group

May 18, 2022 - One shocking Split taxi experience made a turn for the better thanks to the help of the local community. 

Those in Split know that the tourist season came a bit earlier than usual this year - especially when we consider we're enjoying 28 degrees in May. But, unfortunately, we can't kick off the season without the horror taxi stories we know so well from the past, with some tourists already desperate for help after forking out cash for mindboggling fares. Like Emma Watkinson.

Emma shared her unpleasant taxi experience in the uber-popular Facebook group "Split Croatia Travel 2022", which has 9.7K members - a mix of locals, expats, tourists currently in Croatia, and those planning on traveling to Split. As Emma explained, she took a taxi from the city center, near Roof 68, at the beginning of the Tourist Palace on Monday evening. 

"Last night, I grabbed a taxi from the Split city centre, at a taxi rank in the region near Roof 68 bar. The journey was approximately 10 minutes back to the apartment, and the taxi driver has charged us £71, rather than £7.10. Given this was a random taxi amongst a taxi rank, it’s proven impossible to track this particular taxi, given ‘Dalmatia travel’ doesn’t relate back to a particular firm. Has this happened to anyone before? Any help would be really appreciated," Emma posted in the Facebook group. 

280947595_3191362694439914_2414911176174702294_n.jpeg

According to the CNB exchange rate, one pound is 8.91 kuna. This means that the taxi driver charged a dizzying 630 kuna for a ten-minute ride instead of approximately 63 kuna.

Emma wondered if a similar situation had already happened to someone. Members of the group tried to help her find the owner of the taxi company, others suggested waiting in the spot she picked up the taxi to find the driver, while others urged her to use secure platforms like Uber where the cost of travel is clearly calculated.

"A few days ago they charged over 900 kuna from the Bus station to the Airport. Same as last summer. A few years ago they charge my guest for a 3-minute drive during the rainy day 200 kuna, and it was without a bill."

"Shame on the driver, always ask for the price estimate in advance!"

"Why didn't you use Uber?" 

"I’m ashamed. This shouldn’t have happened. It’s an exception, though, most people are honest." 

And one taxi company showed just how honest they are. 

"I'm sorry about what happened to you, my company has been providing taxi services for the last few years in this city... As a company director to you as a guest and visitor to our city I would offer you a FREE TRANSFER to the airport at the expense of our company to keep Croatia in your good memory...We don't want people to have a misconception about legal taxi drivers who do their job fairly

Official Split Airport Taxi Prices Published to Trogir, Split City Center, and More

May 17, 2022 - Official Split Airport taxi prices have been published at the airport's taxi stand in an effort to combat outrageous fares. 

After the concessions were introduced for taxi carriers, Split Airport published a list of prices for taxi services from Resnik. Namely, a price list is set up next to the signpost for the taxi stand and informs guests about the cost of transport to several destinations, reports Dalmatinski Portal

A ride to Trogir is 150 kuna, to the surrounding marinas 220 kuna, to Omiš 600, and to Šibenik 680 kuna. For Split, prices range between 330 to 380 kuna. Van rides are 30 percent more expensive. The prices seem fair and will certainly help keep guests from feeling cheated. 

Screenshot_2022-05-17_at_08.52.14.png

Dalmatinski Portal

Dalmatinski Portal recently published an invoice for a taxi ride from the ferry port in Split to the Airport, costing the passenger 957 kuna to drive 26 kilometers! This is almost three times the tariff announced at Resnik.

A ride on that route should cost a maximum of 300 kuna, says Milivoj Topić, president of the Transportation Guild at the Association of Craftsmen. 

"We warned when passing the law that things like this would happen. And that is just one of the negative things we are facing," says Topić.

Topić believes this move by Split Airport is a step in the right direction.

"The price list was brought by the airport in cooperation with the Association of Craftsmen of the City of Kaštela. We are also looking to do something similar in Split in the foreseeable future, following the example of Dubrovnik, Novalja, and Pula, in order to avoid embarrassing situations and manipulations," says Topić. 

But there are other ways to get from Split Airport to the city center, mainly mobile applications like Uber, Bolt, and Cammeo. At the time of writing this, Bolt will take you from the Split Riva to Split Airport for 190 kuna, while Uber is around 215 kuna. Cammeo was showing 220 kuna. The applications showed around 60 kuna to Trogir from Split Airport.

And if you're looking for even cheaper options from Split Airport to the Split City Center? You can take the airport shuttle bus directly to the Split Bus Station for 45 kuna (more information here) or hop on the local 37 Promet bus.

May 16, 2022 - In our new TCN series, we uncover the lives of expats that have spent over 5 years living in Split. Next up, meet Sandra Perkovic from Canada.

Next up, Sandra Perkovic from Montreal, Canada!

1. Tell us firstly how you came to Croatia? What motivated you to choose this slice of paradise and how long have you now been here?

I met my husband in Canada while he was on tour, we then got married and I moved to Croatia. For me, moving to Croatia was a childhood dream of mine. I have been living in Croatia for 20 years - 10 in Zagreb and 10 in Split.

IMG_2534.jpeg

2. Looking back, what were your perceptions and expectations?

Croatia has exceeded all my expectations, even though my cousins used to tell me it's not the same vacationing here and living here.

IMG_2542.jpeg

3. After 20 years here, how have those perceptions changed. Do you now view Croatia differently?

I think that Croatia is the best place to raise a family. It's so fun living here and I love nature and the fact that it is a small country with so many different climates. I love that you can be on the beach and in one hour you can be skiing.

IMG_2544.jpeg

4. After your time year, the 3 things you love most about Croatia?

I love Croatia for its safety; children have freedom here because it is so safe. I love how there is always a festival going on, it's just so much fun living here and lastly, I love nature, the national parks, the sea, the mountains, such beautiful nature, and of course how everyone always has time for kava…. Kava in Croatia can last for hours.

IMG_2533.jpeg

5. And the 3 things you would like to change.

I wish that people were more pet friendly, although this is getting better, I wish that people got jobs based on their qualifications rather than through connections and I wish that the school system was not so demanding.

IMG_2532.jpeg

6. Given your experiences, what advice would you give to any would-be expat thinking of making the move?

I will never regret coming here, I just regret not coming sooner. If you are considering the move to Croatia don’t hesitate.

IMG_2541.jpeg

7. The most beautiful place in Croatia, and why?

Oh, so many beautiful places. I love Zagreb because it’s a big city and has it all, but I also love the islands along the Dalmatian coast.

IMG_2538.jpeg

8. Your favourite moment of your time in Croatia?

My favourite moment is waking up each day in Croatia and being aware that I am living my dream. Croatia is a dream come true.

Ivica Puljak: Split Will be Among Best Places in Croatia for Education

May the 15th, 2022 - Split politician Ivica Puljak has claimed that the City of Split will become one of the best places in all of Croatia when it comes to education.

As Morski writes, presenting his programme in the City of Split, Croatia's second largest city, Centre's mayoral candidate Ivica Puljak announced the construction of apartments, kindergartens and schools, and said that if making a return to the helm of Split's city administration, they'd continue where they left off.

According to Ivica Puljak, they wanted to share the programme with the people at a public presentation at the place where they celebrated their victory last time, something he hopes to repeat. He was accompanied by other Centre political candidates (who would be deputy mayors), Bojan Ivosevic and Antonio Kuzmanic.

They plan to build POS apartments in Koresnica, complete Znjan beach by the summer of 2024, and build the Dracevac Technology Park. They have already thought up a project to build four kindergartens, so two should be completed by the beginning of the next school year, and two by the end of the term so that all children can have a place in kindergarten.

''Split will be one of the best places in Croatia in terms of education standards,'' claimed a confident Ivica Puljak. They also plan to build five new halls so that all primary schools in Split have their own, as well as two new schools, in Kili and Sirobuja, N1 reports. There are also the priority streets of Lovrinacka, Vukovarska, Put Mostina, Put Kamena, Bracka ulica and Mandjerova in their sights, as well as the desire to solve the problem of parking through urban mobility and building more garages.

Ivica Puljak said that they also have a new waste management system to boast of, so that Split would be able to separate 50 percent of waste in three years and become an "example city" to others across Croatia and indeed further afield.

In addition to the original waste separation system, they have developed a new urban policy and will draft a new GUP by the year 2026, and conduct a tender for city projects. According to that, he added, Stari Hajduk Square would become a memorial-cultural-sports centre with underground garages as well.

When asked how to get money for the planned projects has been secured and set aside, Ivica Puljak answered that the money will be generated from the city budget, while the City of Split will still have to borrow for some of these important projects.

He noted that they now have a more realistic programme than they did before because they have experience in Banovina, and said that they want to continue where they left off "with more enthusiasm, desire, hope and greater support from residents."
