UEFA CUP: Ajax - Dinamo 2:3


AFC Ajax 2-3 NK Dinamo Zagreb (agg: 3-3, Dinamo win on away goals)
Marijo Mandžukić was the hero for Dinamo as Ajax were unravelled in extra time of a five-goal thriller in Amsterdam. The visitors' attacking intent was rewarded when Mandžukić was brought down in the area by Gregory van der Wiel and Luka Modrić (34) levelled the aggregate score from the spot. The match went to extra time whereupon Mandžukić scored twice in three minutes (94 & 96). Klaas Jan Huntelaar's also struck two goals (101, 120) but they came too late to save Henk ten Cate's side.

Germany vs Serbia 0:1 - Jovanovic goal


Posle oštrog starta Klozea nad Dejanom Stankovićem u 37. minutu, nemački napadač je zbog drugog žutog kartona poslat na klupu, a Srbija odmah koristi ukazanu priliku. Posle odličnog probijanja Krasića, u šesnaestercu Nemaca dobro se snalazi Nikola Žigić i prosleđuje loptu Milanu Jovanoviću, koji iz peterca lako postiže pogodak.

Brojim, al' ne verujem
Daješ mi krila, baš ti hvala

Nisu k'o tvoji bodovi
Nađi nekog nalik meni
Da te bolje predstavi, dogod'ne, na Evroviziji!

Fala, fala! Fala još jednom...

Lane moje, ovih dvanaest
Brojim, al' ne verujem
Daješ mi krila, baš ti hvala

Nisu k'o tvoji bodovi
Nađi nekog nalik meni, il' Breni
Da te bolje predstavi, bolje mjesto osvoji...

Ivo Sanader song: Laf od Hrvatske


U splitskom hotelu Lavu
održao skup se mio.
HDZ je im'o banket
godišnjicu je slavio.
I premijer tu je bio
zasukao rukav livi,
s novom urom se hvalio
zavidjeli svi su Ivi.
Eh da mi je još jedared poći
preko Splita do otoka Hvara
pa da vidim tko tu koga kara,
tko bi prodo hotele bez para

U splitskom hotelu Lavu
sastale se i tri glave.
Nogometni plan sad prave
za Hajdučke dane slave.
Pa doveli Rukavinu
koji dobro loptu tjera
pa nek Hajduk bude prvi
sve uz pomoć premijera.
Eh da mi je još jedared vidit
novu uru našeg premijera.
Koji sada glumi menagera.
Naprid Ajduk, naprid veronska opera

Croatian 8 years old soccer player - Nikola Vlasic


Slaven Bilić: Nikola Vlašić je čudo
Nikola Vlašić, devetogodišnji brat naše atletske zvijezde Blanke, velika je nogometna nada. Mladi talent zaintrigirao je i našeg izbornika Slavena Bilića.
- Mali Nikola je čudo. Vidio sam ga uživo i oduševio me. Igrao je jedanput protiv mojeg sina. Njegova je momčad pobijedila 7-1. Zapravo, Nikola je sam pobijedio, zabio je puno golova - ispričao je Bilić.
Time je dobio još jedan dokaz za tezu koju često ponavlja.
- U Hrvatskoj je talenata uvijek bilo i bit će. Mi smo, jednostavno, takva nacija - kaže izbornik i tvrdi da se ne moramo brinuti za nogometnu budućnost.

Mladici / Room-mates



2007 couple of students from Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Belgrade (Uroš Tomić, Pavle Vučković) made a pilot for television sitcom named "Mladići"(international title is "Room-mates" since the title is play of words). It's about two young men (young men is "mladići" on Serbian) who need to move out of their parents house so their grandmother (Ratko Mladić's made-up-for-tv high school sweetheart) offers them her apartment if they agree to hide war criminal Ratko Mladić (played by Aleksandar Hrnjakovic) who is running away from his International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia trial. Even though the episode is based on almost pure fiction and fabricated truth, neither TV station in Serbia (including B92 and Radio Television of Serbia) wanted to pick this show up, and the reason was anything from "expensive production" (which is not true) to "theme that would make viewers angry" (and that could be true at some point, but South Park does it all the time and it re-invented modern television in that kind of way).

Druze Tito kupit cu ti Ficu...


Sto je muskarac bez brkova? (What Is a Man Without a Moustache?)
The title itself is a giveaway. Hrvoje Hribar's Sto je muskarac bez brkova? (What Is a Man Without a Moustache?) is light comedy.This is another one of those cassock-chasing romances between a young widow and a reluctant priest haunted by an alcoholic past and his concupiscence. As for what the title refers to, that's any one's guess — save that the macho in the film is a general with a moustache, who also happens to be the priest's brother. His unquenchable yen for the fair sex leads him to the open arms of the widow as well. That intertwined episode is just one of the tales in this comedy on sex and mores in provincial Croatia (Dalmatian Zagora).

UEFA CUP: Dinamo - Ajax 0:1


Draws may not have favoured NK Dinamo Zagreb in recent seasons but the runaway Croatian league leaders are determined to give AFC Ajax a game in the UEFA Cup.

Bad luck
Last season, Dinamo lost to Arsenal FC in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round before losing to AJ Auxerre to miss out on a place in the UEFA Cup group stage. This season Europe's top club competition proved a step too far as they lost 5-3 on aggregate to German giants Werder Bremen, and they could have been excused a gasp of horror when the UEFA Cup draw paired them with Ajax.

Old Ethno Song


Ojkavica is a type of singing from Dalmatian Zagora (Croatia) . It is characterized by a lone singer singing one line of lyrics and then others joining in for what can be best described as a wail. It is a very passionate form of singing, which is one of the reasons it has been limited in popularity to small towns.

Pjesma za stradale vatrogasce: OVO NIJE KRAJ


Iza duge srest ću te ja
Jer nebo vidi, nebo sve zna
Čuva mjesto za bolje od svih
Dal sam i ja jedan od njih

Iza suza još sunce sja
Svijetlo djeli dobro od zla
Sto oluja, pobjeda sto
Dal sam i ja rođen za to

Kroz sve moje dane i godine
Samo srce imam da vodi me
I u mraku sam, vjerujem i znam...

Ovo nije kraj
Gore pogledaj
Tamo piše drugo ime
Hrabrosti

Ovo nije kraj
Zadnji zagrljaj
Sve dok za vas gore svijeće ljubavi

Sva je tuga svijeta u meni
A ja nedam da me pobjedi

Eurobasket 2007: Lithuania - Croatia 74:72


Lithuania Slip Past Croatia, Into Semis

Zoran Planinic missed two foul shots with 1.02 seconds remaining, allowing Lithuania to hold off a motivated Croatia 74-72 and book their spot in Saturday's semi-finals against Russia.

Darius Songalia scored 20 points, grabbed seven rebounds and gave Lithuania the winning basket with 46 seconds left.

Linas Kleiza collected 19 points and nine rebounds and Sarunas Jasikevicius dished out eight assists as Lithuania remained the only perfect team in the competition.

"It should have been an easier game, but it was very difficult for us psychologically. Croatia are a very good team, but every team in the quarter-finals is good," said Ramunas Siskauskas, who was held to just two points.

"We were a bit nervous at the beginning, but not in the final seconds and that's what helped us to the win."

Lithuania are hoping to repeat their 2003 run to the EuroBasket title - which they won with a perfect 6-0 run.

Andorra - Croatia 0:6


Croatia crush sorry Andorra
Three goals in either half helped Croatia consolidate their UEFA EURO 2008™ Group E lead in this impressive six-goal showing against Andorra.

Petrić double
Mladen Petrić had scored four goals in the Croatian record-equalling 7-0 home win against David Rodrigo's side last October and the BV Borussia Dortmund player was again on target with two first-half strikes for the visitors. Darijo Srna, Niko Kranjčar, Eduardo da Silva and Ivan Rakitic were the other marksmen on a miserable day for Andorra, compounded by the 77th-minute dismissal of Genís García.

Deadlock broken
There had been little goalmouth action until midway through the first half when Kranjčar shot wide from just outside the area. A minute later, Eduardo headed over the bar from close range as the visitors began to assert their authority. Croatia then went ahead on 34 minutes, when Srna's free-kick deflected off the wall and over the helpless goalkeeper Koldo Álvarez.

Goal flurry
Within four minutes, Slaven Bilić's side had doubled their lead from another set-piece: Petrić curling an exquisite left-footed free-kick past Koldo. The forward then made it 3-0 a minute before the interval with an angled 12-metre drive that crept just inside the far post. After the break, three became four as the unmarked Kranjčar crashed a left-footed strike into the corner from nine metres. And as Andorra's resistance crumbled it was 5-0, Eduardo pouncing from short range after Kranjčar's shot had been blocked on the line on 55 minutes.
Croatia's dominance was total and a sixth goal duly arrived on 64 minutes, when substitute Rakitic poked in the rebound after Koldo had parried Petrić's curling free-kick

MONTENEGRO - SWEDEN (Mirko Vucinic goal)


Šveđani bez milosti
Podgorica - Crna Gora je igrala bolje nego protiv Slovenije, a doživjela prvi poraz na stadionu pod Goricom. Dugo je mirisalo na pobjedu - čvrstina na sredini, konture pravog tima, bolja igra i više zrelijih šansi od protivnika. Hladnokrvni Šveđani, ipak, nijesu imali sentimentalnosti prema domaćem timu i šest hiljada navijača - iskoristili veliki pad protivnika u finišu, kaznili dvije greške i odnijeli pobjedu. U meču u kojem je četa Zorana Filipovića zaslužila mnogo više od minimalnog poraza domaćin je poveo golom Vučinića u 16. minutu, a Skandinavci preokrenuli preko Rozenberga i Price u 70. i 74.

Croatia - Estonia 2:0 (Eduardo da Silva show)


Eduardo keeps Croatia on course
Eduardo da Silva struck twice inside six first-half minutes to seal an easy win for Croatia and move them two points clear at the Group E summit.
The Arsenal FC forward doubled the advantage in added time at the end of the first half, collecting a right-wing pass from Luka Modrić and making no mistake with a rasping left-footed drive straight into the top right corner to put the tie beyond doubt. From there on it became a damage-limitation exercise for Estonia, who succeeded by not conceding again...

Eurobasket 2007: Croatia - Spain 85:84


Marko Tomas buried a three-pointer with 3.1 seconds remaining as Croatia stunned Spain 85-84 to finish top of Group B in Seville.

The win, achieved in Seville’s San Pablo Pavilion, gained partial revenge for the Croatians who were knocked out of EuroBasket 2005 by Spain in the quarter-finals.

The result also put Portugal into the next round, while eliminating Latvia – the team that beat Croatia in the opening game, 85-77.
Portugal upset Latvia on Wednesday.

“I’m really happy that we qualified for the next round with four points, that’s a big advantage for us,” said Croatia coach Jasmin Repesa.

“But, at the same time, we have to stay quiet and go game by game because we’ve seen many surprises already in this championship. I believed after the first big loss to Latvia, that we would get to Madrid. But I was worried how we played then.”

Blanka Vlasic - World Champion

VIDEOS: Blanka Vlasic - All About
Sve o Blanki Vlašić

When she knew she had won, Blanka Vlasic decided there was still a treat or two in store for the crowd. She would attempt to break the High Jump world record, but first cam a little dance from the first World champion from Croatia.

She stood by the side of the mat and she jigged one way, and then the other. The spectators celebrated – and she waved and danced away more.

“I wanted to win this gold medal so much,” said Vlasic, 23, from Split. “Now I am in a state of shock.”

The unleashing of these emotions after she had been the only athlete to clear 2.05m brought confirmation of what the sport knew about her.

In 2002, in Santiago, Chile, and two years later in Kingston, Jamaica, Vlasic won gold at the IAAF World Junior Championships, one of the best bases for success as a senior.

It put her third on the all-time list behind Kostandinova and her fellow Bulgarian Lyudmila Andonova and if she does break the World record, we now know what to expect.

“In every competition, I actually have a different dance," she said. "It gives positive energy to people in the crowd. You need to spice it up.”

Nikola Tesla biography (7 videos)


Nikola Tesla was born in Smiljan on July 10th 1856, a little village near Gospić in Lika, Croatia. Their family name was not always Tesla. It had been Draganić, surname Tesla was given to them afterwards. Namely, allegedly one of Nikola's ancestors had extremely big front teeth that resembled carpenter tools ("Tesarski" alat) so he got the nickname "Tesla" after it.
Nikola grew up in a land-tilling environment. In those days Lika was one of the most underdeveloped and isolated regions of the Hapsburg Monarchy. Illiteracy, lack of education were characteristics of a whole southeast part of the Monarchy. Apart from that, up to 1881 Lika was included in Military Border so the life in the that region was far harder and more cruel than the life in the civil part of Croatia.
Up to age of ten, there was no possibility for Nikola to see the locomotive let alone to find out anything about the world technical achievements. One of the earliest events that Tesla remembered was that when he had been locked in a little mountain church. At the age of five Nikola would take a walk on Velebit, which towered above his home village...

Dinamo - Werder 2:3


Spot-on Bremen keep Dinamo at bay
Werder Bremen held their nerve to book a return to the UEFA Champions League group stage with an exciting 5-3 aggregate triumph though they were pushed all the way at the Maksimir Stadium by a determined NK Dinamo Zagreb outfit.

Diego spot-kicks
Coming into the game with a precarious 2-1 lead after the first encounter in Germany, Bremen enjoyed a dream start when Diego converted a 13th-minute penalty. Yet Ognjen Vukojević capitalised on a defensive error to reduce the Croatian side's overall deficit and it set the tone for the evening as the visitors struggled to put the tie beyond reach. Boubacar Sanogo restored their two-goal aggregate advantage, then Luka Modrić hit back from the spot for the home team before Diego scored yet another penalty midway through the half to finally settle the tie.

Vukojević strike
Diego had proved equally efficient 57 minutes earlier when he neatly slotted in from eleven metres after Hugo Almeida had elicited a foul in the middle of a crowded Dinamo box. It temporarily silenced the majority of the 40,000 crowd, but they regained their voice eight minutes later when Vukojević pounced on a loose pass from Frank Baumann and fired in courtesy of a deflection off the former Germany international. Yet that goal came against the run of play and Bremen quickly regained their composure and then, six minutes before the interval, the lead.

Sanogo effort
Hugo Almeida worked space for a powerful effort from the left that German goalkeeper Georg Koch could only parry into the path of Sanogo, who made no mistake. It left the home side needing to score three times to win through to the group stage, and although Modrić pulled one back after Boško Balaban had been brought down, Diego restored Bremen's lead on the night with 20 minutes remaining after Etto was fouled to finally extinguish home hopes.

Osaka WC, 100m final: 1. Gay... 7. Osovnikar


Tyson Gay outclasses Asafa Powell in the final stages of the men's 100m final

In a 100-meters final that delivered all it promised Sunday, Gay was slower out of the blocks. Once his legs got pumping, he caught and surged past Asafa Powell, Jamaica to claim his first gold medal at a major international championship in 9.85 seconds.

"After 60 meters I saw that I could catch him — and it worked," Gay said. "I stayed relaxed and believed in my top speed even though I had a bad start."

Powell, sensing defeat, was passed by Derrick Atkins of Bahamas at the tape in 9.91. Powell was third in 9.96, and even though he is co-holder of the world record at 9.77, admitted he ran scared.

"I panicked. I felt him coming on," Powell said. "That slowed me down ... I made a big mistake."

Gay, unbeaten this year coming into the championships, felt his composure beginning to slip Sunday morning. "I was wondering, 'Will people still respect me if I lose?'" he said. "I was wondering if anyone would still love me."

A call from his coach, Lance Brauman, who is nearing the end of a prison sentence for embezzlement, theft and mail fraud, calmed his nerves.

"This morning he called me around 11. He told me basically that he knows in the morning when he gets up that I'll be world champion," Gay said.

Some reassuring words from his mother, Daisy Gay Lowe, also helped.

"She talked to me and made me a believer. That's something I wasn't doing," he said.

Watched under a full moon by Japanese Emperor Akihito, Empress Michiko and some 40,000 fans at the Nagai stadium, Gay pumped his arms, beat his chest and shouted in delight in the victory that ended weeks of nervous preparations.

Powell showed little emotion — his sullen demeanor said it all.

Gay, regularly slower out of the blocks than Powell, had feared a false start, which would put him even more on edge. But the race went off smoothly. And with his head wobbling from side to side, Gay hit his groove.

But once he hits his stride, there is no stopping Gay. It is why he now is an overwhelming favorite to win the 200, too. With a bit of luck, he could also add a title in the 400 relays, where another battle with Powell looms.

"I'm just going to try to ice, get a massage, spend a little time with my family and really focus on the 200 now," Gay said. The 200 heats are set for Tuesday.

Both Gay and Powell were desperate to win their first global title Sunday and gain status as the favorite going into the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

"Next year I will get him," Powell vowed. "But for now, I am very disappointed."

Powell barely showed emotion on the track_ a sullen demeanor that said it all. He complained his blocks stumbled at the start.

1. Tyson Gay (USA) 9,85

Group E leaders Croatia warmed-up for their 8 September match with Estonia with a high-scoring win. Eduardo Da Silva and Darijo Srna put the visitors two up inside 35 minutes before Zlatan Muslimović pulled one back for the hosts. The same player levelled after the restart but two goals in as many minutes from Niko Kovač and Srna made it 4-2. Muslimović (77) completed his hat-trick but Kovač (81) finally secured the win.

Montenegro - Slovenia 1:1


Ten-man Slovenia clinched a draw in Podgorica against Montenegro. The home side started better and were rewarded on 28 minutes when Fabijan Cipot fouled Milan Purović and captain Mirko Vučinić scored from the penalty spot. Slovenia equalised before half-time when Dare Vršič scored with a powerful shot from 20 meters. Montenegro missed several great opportunites after the break with Vučinić rattling the post and Simon Vukčević twice missing from close range.

Bruce Lee from Zagora


Golden Sticks - first movie in indepedent Montenegro

Boris Ivković, better known by his stage name Bore Lee is a Croatian martial arts enthusiast and amateur filmmaker from Sinj.

Ship-builder by trade and a great fan of Bruce Lee, he studied martial arts from an early age. In 1994 he began displaying his skills on short low budget martial arts films that were recorded on a VHS camera. Gradually, those films became underground sensations in his native town of Sinj and the shooting of these films on city streets became a popular spectacle.

Bore Lee's fame reached Zagreb when a group of four filmmakers decided to make a film with Bore, titled Bore Lee-U Kandzama Velegrada (In the Claws of the Big City) 2004, a low budget martial arts parody that later turned out to be the most popular trash film in Croatian cinema.In 2005, once again with the same 4 filmakers and this time with a slightly better low budget, Bore Lee appeared in his 8th film titled Bore Lee-"Cuvaj se Sinjske Ruke" Bore Lee: Deadly Sinjs!.
Also, with this movie, Bore Lee, became famous all over Croatia, and very soon, in neighbouring countries ( Bore Lee was invited in Montenegro, where he also made his movie, "Golden Sticks" - this is videospot from that movie, authors of music are hip-hop stars from Montenegro - Mc Marko & Mc Niggor ).

Some his movies featured some prominent Croatian celebrities, as well as plenty of pop culture references and healthy humour (although film tries to be serious). As a result, it soon became one of the most popular films in recent Croatian history. In later movies, Bore Lee attracted more Croatian celebrities.

It is held annually on the second Saturday in August, on a course 22.5 km long, under the direct patronage of the President of the Republic of Croatia.
Ladje were used by the old Neretva pirates of yesteryear, who terrorised these parts in the 10th century. With the modernization of life, ladje have almost become technologically redundant, and as a result became a relic. In many cases they could be found ruined and 'shipwrecked', half submerged in various parts of the many tributaries.

So as to preserve the significance and history of the ladje, in 1998 the very first race involving these relics from the past was organized from Metkovic to Ploce. At the start of the inaugural race, there were a total of 18 local crews. It so captured the imagination of the locals that with each year a new record number of entries is received. As for the old half-ruined ladje lying peacefully in the rivers, they were awaken from their slumber and repaired to live another day in the following year's race.

Since the old ladje were all of different dimensions, and so that all competitors would race in vessels of the same size, in 2004 new custom-made ladje were built, which would be used specifically for the Maraton ladje.
Each rowing crew consists of 10 rowers, a drummer and a cox, or oarsmen. There can be a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 18 persons in each squad. Anyone who is willing may form part of the crew: men, women, children.
The competing ladja must be wooden, comprise a traditional shape and must meet the official competition rules as far as actual dimensions are concerned. That is, the length must be between 7 and 8.2 meters, the width between 2.45 and 2.8 meters, the depth is 70cm, with 23 spokes or wooden rods. The actual oars themselves must also be made of wood

A Capella - Klapa Neverin (8 songs)


Klapa Neverin is a woman "a cappela" band from Kastel Luksic.

So called Dalmatian "klapa" songs are at the core of dalmatian music. "Klapa" in Dalmatian dialect means company or group, while in musical terms it refers to five-to-eight member ensembles. Traditionally, the ensemble consists only of male voices, but nowadays we witness the emergence of many mixed and female ensembles with a varying number of members.

Nevertheless, its basic characteristic and distinction are, and remain, solely vocal harmony-singing, only rarely discreetly and quietly accompanied by instruments. Part-singing, usually in four parts, is originally spontaneous, performed by the ear and not by following note recordings, so harmonization is simple. A low-pitched accompaniment is stressed by a larger number of singers, giving the songs a more intimate atmosphere.

Klapa songs have slow, free rhythm and are often without any measure mark (libero). Sometimes it even includes complex measures. The songs are usually quite serenade-like love songs, usually addressing a beloved girl. However, marry and satirical songs also exist. Regardless of a theme, they are always in a major key.

It is, therefore, not surprising that in the preservation of original folk music composers and musicologists-folklorists invested most of their effort into this particular segment. Consequently, a special annual festival of amateur Dalmatian singing was established in Omis - Festival of the Dalmatian klapas. In only few years, this festival has grown into a cultural institution of great importance and reputation. The lack of original records and the limited number of available songs prompted the composers to write more complex harmonizations to existing songs, as well as many entirely new songs, still respecting the tradition

Hajduk - Sampdoria 0:1


Hajduk feel heel of destiny
UC Sampdoria left Croatia with a 1-0 win after their goal led a charmed life early on in their UEFA Cup second qualifying round first leg at HNK Hajduk Split.

Deflected winner
Argentinian Hugo Campagnaro deflected Sergio Volpi's free-kick into the Hajduk net with his heel after 42 minutes to give the Genoa side the only goal of the game just two minutes after coming on as a substitute for the injured Pietro Accardi. However, Hajduk were left to rue their luck - and their finishing - after creating a number of presentable chances.

Off the woodwork
A crowd of 35,000 at the Poljud Stadium sensed a goal early on as Hajduk were awarded an indirect free-kick in the penalty area after ten minutes. Romanian midfielder Florin Cernat drove the set-piece against the crossbar before Srdjan Andrić saw his deflected shot hit the woodwork too. Four minutes later another Cernat effort from the edge of the box struck the post
The visitors seemed content to settle for a 1-0 win and did not push too hard for a second goal but nearly got one anyway as substitute Vicenzo Montella, on loan from AS Roma, drew a decent save from Balić late on. Nonetheless Samp are in a strong position for the home return in a fortnight.

Werder Bremen - Dinamo Zagreb 2:1


Werder strike late for 2-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb
Werder Bremen needed a long-range blast from Daniel Jensen four minutes from time to seal a 2-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb at the Weserstadion in the first leg of their Champions League third round qualifier on Wednesday.
Bosko Balaban had given the Croatian champions a deserved lead at the end of the first half, touching in from six metres to convert Mario Mandzukic's ball in from the right.
That acted as a spur for the Germans, who came out with a new attitude at the start of the second half.
Substitute Hugo Almeida struck the equaliser almost immediately when he raced through and scored on the rebound, after the keeper had blocked his first effort.
The visitors had plenty of chances to go ahead themselves before a thumping late effort from Danish international Jensen gave Werder a slim advantage to take to the away leg on Aug. 29.

Goran Ivanisevic scores goal


Croat soccer star Zvonimir Boban laced up his cleats again in a testimonial match that saw another Croatian sports great — tennis ace Goran Ivanisevic — steal the show by scoring a goal against some of Boban's best-known teammates.
Boban was joined by soccer greats Marco Van Basten, Lothar Matthaeus and Franco Baresi, as well as other stars — some active, others retired — in a match honoring the Croat player.
Near the end of the match, Boban left a field to a standing ovation and Ivanisevic replaced him. The crowd welcomed him euphorically, only to explode with joy when Ivanisevic, who won Wimbledon last year, scored for Croatia minutes after joining play

ALKA - KNIGHTS GAME


The Alka is held to commemorate the victory of the outnumbered defenders of the old city of Sinj, against the multiples times more numerous and stronger Ottoman army in 1715.

Around 700 defenders held out against a siege of the Sinj fort, and according to historical sources, with their courage, fighting spirit and determination, the resisted the Ottoman army, which according to the same sources, had up to 60,000 soldiers.

The legend says that the defenders were helped in their battle with the appearance of the blessed Virgin Mary, so the defenders gathered gold and framed her picture with it.

In honour of the great victory, the citizens of Sinj, with permission from the Venetian authorities, founded the knight games, Alka, a unique competition of jousting knights in Europe, similar to knight tournaments from the middle ages, which has been kept as a tradition for nearly three centuries. According to sources, similar games have been held in Makarska and in other places in Dalmatia and Istria, but it is the Alka that is of great value for surviving until today, and has become a world attraction, because it has been held with unchanged rules, in Sinj, for 292 years.

Sorry for Kung Fu


Sorry for Kung Fu (2004)
Starring: Daria Lorenci, Filip Rados Director: Ognjen Svilicic
"Sorry for Kung Fu" is a dark comedy showing the tragedy of life, but also shows the natural humor of Croatian rural element. Places that the director Svilicic chose for filming are great in their nudity, and actors are very natural and expressive. What we can appreciated the most is a keen contrast between humorous and tragic element.

Short plot: When young Mira comes back to her modest home after time spent in Germany, and also pregnant she will be faced with the harsh life back with her parents who desperately try to find her a husband suitable for her delicate situation, of course against her will. Tis will lead to numerous absurd and tragic situations, especially after the child is born.

UEFA CUP match: Buducnost vs Hajduk


HNK Hajduk Split's UEFA Cup first qualifying round trip to FK Budućnost Podgorica has brought back a mix of fond and painful memories at the Montenegrin club.

Defiant optimism
It is 16 years since the two sides met in a competitive game, when both were competing in the former Yugoslavia, and while Budućnost - who finished as runners-up in the inaugural Montenegrin season - will be without goalkeeper Mladen Božović and forward Nikola Vujović, both Montenegrin internationals who have decided to leave the club, there is still optimism in Podgorica.

'Only on paper'
"Yes, Hajduk are better then Budućnost, but only on paper," said the Montenegrin side's coach Saša Petrović. "They have to prove that on the pitch. We are ready for two big games. In the past, Hajduk also came to Podgorica as favourites but often left the field with their heads down. We will try to spring a surprise. There is no need for us to be afraid."

Old-fashioned rivalry
A large contingent of travelling Hajduk fans is expected for the first game, and 20-year-old Budućnost attacking midfielder Milan Djurišić is looking forward to a taste of old-fashioned Yugoslavian excitement. "I don't remember that period but I am glad we have a chance to turn back time for fans in Montenegro," he said. "I'm sure the stadium will be full and that we will play with our hearts."

Famous connection
The most famous connection between the two clubs is that a deal was arranged for Montenegrin footballing idol Predrag Mijatović - now sporting director at Real Madrid CF - to leave Budućnost for Hajduk in 1989, with a transfer fee being agreed, only for the move to collapse in the space of 24 hours when the player decided to join Belgrade giants FK Partizan.

Petrović thwarted
A less famous move that never was in 1990 saw current Budućnost coach Petrović lined up to replace his current Hajduk counterpart Ivan Pudar as goalkeeper at the Poljud Stadium. "It was a done deal but the Budućnost officials suddenly changed their minds and blocked the transfer," he remembered. "I remember the headline: 'Pudar leaves, Petrović arrives'."

Poljud trip
The coach's dream of a move to the Dalmatian coast will finally come true as he leads his side into the second leg of the tie on 2 August. "Now, at last I will go to the Poljud," said Petrović. With a little luck, he will be going there to defend a healthy first-leg lead.

GORAN IVANISEVIC dedicated Wimbledon title to DRAZEN PETROVIC


Goran Ivanisevic dedicated his Wimbledon title to a good friend, an NBA star killed in a car crash eight years ago. Drazen Petrovic, a Croatian compatriot, was a member of the New Jersey Nets when he died in the accident in Germany. "I went to his funeral just before Wimbledon and I said I was going to dedicate that Wimbledon to him," Ivanisevic said after beating Patrick Rafter in five sets. "Unfortunately I played pretty badly and I lost in the third round." Ivanisevic said his father brought him some newspapers before this tournament. In one of them was a poster of Petrovic, who was one of the best shooters in the NBA. "So I ripped it off and put it on the wall," he said. "I said, 'This must be destiny. This is it.' Everything was going smoothly and I won it. I want to dedicate this victory to him. "He was not my best friend, but he was my good friend," Ivanisevic added. "He was one of the greatest basketball player in Europe ever."

GOOD GORAN vs BAD GORAN


Maybe you remember the Three Gorans.
Goran I was the Good Goran, the generous, charismatic, deeply religious star we loved, the charitable, blue-sky guy who traveled with a priest and won 22 titles.
Goran II was the rebel, the Mad Goran, who was racked with demons and prone to racket-tossing tantrums and chronic, ill-timed self-destruction.
Finally, there was the Emergency, or 911, Goran, whose task was to step in and sort out all the psychic chaos; the Goran who famously intervened when the Croat was about to implode and blow his chance to finally win Wimbledon, by telling the two other Gorans to get a grip. “Okay, now you have to calm down,” insisted Emergency Goran. “This is your last chance. You have to cool it. You can’t afford to be crazy in the Wimbledon final.”
Of course, tennis has had its share of funnymen. Ilie Nastase, Jimmy Connors, Yannick Noah, Pancho Segura and Whitney Reed could all get stadiums rolling in waves of laughter. But, among our major players, Goran is the funniest.

Hajduk Split - Red Star Belgrade (crying for TITO)

Fanatic soccer supporters


Hajduk fans are called Torcida (since 1950) as they took their name after their idolized Brazilian fan groups, which are named torcidas, from the Portuguese 'torcer', to cheer on. Supporters popularly call players of Hajduk bili (plural form of white in local dialect of the Croatian language) and are the oldest organized supporters' group in Europe.
Outside of Croatia, Hajduk also has many supporters throughout the rest of the world. It is said that Hajduk has never played a single game anywhere in the world without at least a small group of Torcida in the stands. Countries with huge fan clubs membership include Chile, New Zealand, Australia and Canada - mostly countries with significant Croat immigration from Dalmatia.

Hajduk Split was founded in the famous, centuries old pub Flek in Prague (then also a part of Austro-Hungarian Empire) by a group of students from Split (Fabijan Kaliterna, Lucijan Stella, Ivan Šakić and Vjekoslav Ivanišević). They went to the pub right after the match between Sparta and Slavia and decided it was high time their own town founded it's professional club. They all knew how popular the sport was back home, and how well their friends back home played. The club was officially registered with the authorities on February 13, 1911 and is, thus, the oldest football club in Croatia. The name originates from the hajduk's, romanticized bandits that fought the Ottoman Turks.
Hajduk gathered the pro-Croat party of citizens of Split, Croat unionists or puntari. That's why the club specifically has the name "hrvatski nogometni klub" (Croatian football club) and has Croat coat-of-arms in its logo. The club itself was a protest against the Austro-Hungarian government's policy of not allowing the unification of Croatian provinces and keeping them separated (the government and the emperor didn't allow reunion of Dalmatia with the rest of Croatia).
Hajduk reached its first period of glory in late twenties, when it won two Yugoslav championships, breaking the domination of clubs from Belgrade and Zagreb. Particularly interesting is the club's war episode. After Italian occupation of Split, club ceased to compete in defiance, and declined the offer to join the Italian first division. In 1944, team and staff clandestinely joined Yugoslav partisans on the island Vis and continued to play as an official partisan army team. After the war episode, partisan leader and later president of Yugoslavia, Tito, (impressed by the club's proficency and it's unique Dalmatian spirit) invited Hajduk to move to Belgrade and become an official army team. But, players refused the lucrative offer and continued playing in their hometown. The club, however, continued to be Tito's favorite long after the war.
Hajduk had its best years in the 1970s. The so-called "zlatna generacija" (Golden Generation) won five consecutive cups and three championships in the 1972 to 1979 period. It was the second most succsessful club in Yugoslavia far outstripping the third, it's present day rival, Dinamo Zagreb.

The Hajduk kit is white shirt and blue shorts.

Hajduk won two Yugoslav (kingdom) championships, seven Yugoslav championships, eight Croatian championships, as well as nine Yugoslav Cup titles, four Croatian Cups and six super cups.
Abroad, the club has reached the quarterfinals of the Champions Cup (now UEFA Champions League) three times (last time 1995), and two European semifinals: of Cup of cup's winners 1973, and UEFA cup 1984.

Hajduk is famous for its good youth school. It is one of the most prolific producers of high quality footballers which often continue careers in famous European teams. Some of Hajduk's former players include: Alen Bokšić (ex Juventus, Middlesbrough), Robert Jarni (ex Juventus, Real Madrid), Slaven Bilić (ex Karlsruhe, Everton), Igor Štimac (ex West Ham),Milan Rapaić (Standard Liege), Igor Tudor (Juventus), Ivica Šurjak (ex Paris SG), Luka Peruzović (ex Anderlecht), Aljoša Asanović, Ivica Buljan (ex Hamburger SV) and Zlatko Vujović (ex Bordeaux).

When the Croatian national team won third place at the 1998 World Cup in France, amongst the first 11, there were 5 former Hajduk players.

Since 1979, Hajduk plays at the Poljud stadium. It was built by the Yugoslavian federal government for the 1979 Mediterranean games that were held in Split. Thanks to lavish federal funding the stadium is quite impressive, not so much in size (though it is large) as it is in architecture, having one of the most unique and beautiful designs in the world at the time of it's construction. Before that, Hajduk played it's games at the "Kod stare plinare" stadium ("By the old gas facility"), also known as "Stari plac" ("Old Square") or "Staro Hajdukovo" ("Old Hajduk's"). Before the transformation that area into the football pitch, the area was known as "Kraljeva njiva" ("King's Field") and it was part of a military camp.

Hajduk is by far the most popular sport team in the Croatian region of Dalmatia. Hajduk also has a strong fan base throughout the rest of Croatia, especially in littoral areas, as well as in Slavonia. Hajduk is also a very important part of the region's identity.
In the former Yugoslavia, Hajduk was the team that had supporters all over the country, among all national and religious communities (not only among the Croats); no other club achieved that. It is important to mention the big popularity of Hajduk among Albanians in socialist Yugoslavia, especially on Kosovo, where popularity of Hajduk can be compared with the one in Dalmatia.

Old Folklore Song


Ojkavica is a type of singing from Dalmatian Zagora (Croatia) . It is characterized by a lone singer singing one line of lyrics and then others joining in for what can be best described as a wail. It is a very passionate form of singing, which is one of the reasons it has been limited in popularity to small towns.

Anti-War Song


Djordje Balasevic: Odjebi, JNA...
Dao sam ti jednu dobru godinu života...
Najbolju, možda?
Veliki Vračevi Medicine rascepe grudi kao narandžu i spuste novo srce u njih (pažljivo, zatvorenih šaka, kao da vračaju vrapčića u gnezdo), razdvoje skalpelom svetlo od tame u mutnom jezgru zenice, bajaju, pokrenu nepokretno, pa opet, ni oni ne mogu da mi vrate moju otrgnutu devetnaestu nikad vise...

Ali...
Proklet da sam...
Ja sam bar imao dvadesetu. Dvadeset prvu. I jos neke dvadesete-tridesete...
Za razliku od dečaka na cije crno uokvirene fotografije svakodnevno nailazim na predzadnjim stranicama štampe...
Oni ostadoše negde u devetnaestoj...
Zaljubljeni...
Zaigrani...
Zbunjeni...
Ne dospevši da svoje olovne vojnike razdvoje od olovnih zrna, koje su im Zli Starci tako bezbožnicki podmetnuli u džepove...
Ne, Brate Kaine, ne zovi me u polje...
Ne mami me, zalud, da prošetamo minskim poljem, moj grešni sivomaslinasti brate...
Poturi nekog drugog Dobrovoljca na branike svoje nesposobnosti...
Okači drugu metu na svoje kartonske bedeme...

Nema Mojih u ovom Ratu Naših...
Ma, znam...
"Ne može to tek tako"...
Čičak izdaje se kači na sve strane. I meni će ga vec neki mangup prilepiti na ledja, onako u prolazu, tapšući me po ramenu, tobož prijateljski...
Razmisljao sam o tome...
Koga izdati kad mi ostane da biram izmedju nas dvoje?
I, žalim...
Ali prestar sam da bih izdao sebe, jos jednom...
Zato odjebi, JNA...
Dosta je bilo...

Colonia feat Ivek - BAUSTELA SONG


ZA KONJAK JEDAN LJUTI / BAUŠTELA SONG
(prepjev skladbe "Za tvoje snene oči", tekst napisala Jelena Pirliju)
UVOD
Dobro došli na gradilište "Ferbos" tamo gdje skela ljubi nebo, tamo gdje svako malo čuješ jebooo...
...
Upoznali smo se na baušteli
Gledali smo se dok smo štemali
Bio je dovoljan šalung jedan
Da zauvijek tebi ja se predam
Jednog si dana otišao

Na rastanku si mi obećao
Vratit ću se kad se cement veže
Nemoj da ti se zbog toga srce steže
...
REFREN
Za konjak jedan ljuti ja dala bi sve
Da zaboravim dečka s bauštele
Da ne plačem dok sama šalujem
I za tobom žalujem

Za konjak ja ću dati plaću svu
Da ne svisnem kad vidim miješalicu
Da ne mislim što drugu šarmiraš
Dok zidove armiraš
...
Cement se vezao 28 dana
Čekala sam te kraj šalunga sama
Cement se vezao, ti došao nisi
Na drugu bauštelu otišao ti si
