Croatia Online - Sport

Not only is Croatia the current holder of the Davis Cup but Ivan Ljubicic is now in the quarter finals of the Australian open. In skiing, Janica Kostelic has just won the Super-Combined (downhill and slalom) World Cup at St. Moritz, Switzerland. Not bad for a country with under 5 million inhabitants. Croatia also has world class teams in handball and water polo and is a great footballing nation.

You may not realise that you can take a two hour drive from Split and find some quiet ski slopes across the border in Bosnia - don't expect all the facilities but enjoy the deserted slopes.

Oh Dear! Now Croatia have been drawn in Group E, with England, in the qualifiers for Euro 2008, starting in August this year. We'll be practicing our Croatian and keeping our heads down at that time of year. Croatia is another nation of football lovers and has a very decent national team. Fortunately, although passionate about the sport, they're very good humoured about it too.
