One can say that we are neighbours. Throughout history, Ancona was tied to the Croatian coast, so that Croatians had given it the name ''Jakin''. Today, ships from Zadar and Split sail to and from Ancona daily.

Silver Jubilee of the Fall of the Berlin Wall: An Interview with our Erasmus+ Assistant from Italy

1989 was a year of surprises for on November 23, the boarder between communist Germany and democratic-capitalistic  Germany was opened. That same day marked the tearing down of the Berlin Wall which had stopped the free movement of people between the two parts of Berlin, the two countries of Germany, and a divided Europe. After half a century and uncounted sacrifices, communism in Europe fell. Croatia (then part of Yugoslavia which fell into a violent war after the fall of communism) and Italy were considered enemy countries until the fall of the Wall. Today both are full members of a united Europe where one can travel, study and live freely. The University of Macerata in Italy has put this into practice by allowing student Costanza Tonti to come and gain experience at our school in Sesvetska Sopnica.
It is with great pleasure that we speak to our guest from across the Adriatic Sea, who now works at our school thanks to a program funded by the European Union called ''Erasmus+''.

Our Easter and Đurđevdan Traditions

The staff and students of our school are a reflection of our community Sesvetska Sopnica. This is an extension of the area of Zagreb where our school is located. This is an area of strong imigration. Here people come from different parts of Croatia and neighbouring countries.  There are different nationalities and religions which have brought their customs and traditions. Today, man of these traditions are very similar if not the same, while others are very different. After sharing with you our Christmas traditions, we have gathered some of our Easter traditions and the traditions of Đurđevdan from the Roma population. Both Easter and Đurđevdan are celebrated in spring because of the wakening of nature after the winter ''lifelessness''.
Even though we have not covered all areas from where our population comes, our students, parents and grandparents have written a few accounts of their traditions. It is an ethnographic picture of the area in which we live.

In this season of snow, Sopnica has taken on an unusual look because snow, due to global warming, has become a rarity.

In our part of the world a rariety has blossomed.
