Croatia Online - Happy Easter
Easter is a very special time in Croatia, not least in the town of Vodice, near Šibenik, which stages a number of events, including a sailing regatta and the pageant pictured. Follow this link to the Vodice Tourist Board to find out more about this lively tourist town.
We take our lead from today's photo - a mix of religious and military images - to note that Croatia joined NATO this month. No mean achievement after much hard work, continuing strategic and political importance, and the hosting of major NATO exercises back in September 2007 - see our posting of the moment, Croatia Online - NATO in Croatia 2007, when quiet fishing villages and warships seemed to live in relative harmony, and hopefully will continue to do so for many years to come.
Sretan Uskrs (Happy Easter) to all our friends and readers.
