This year, the Republic of India celebrates 75 years of independence, and that is why the Embassy of India in Croatia has organized a series of very special events to celebrate not only its independence, obtained on August 15, 1947, when the Indian Independence Act came into effect, but also International Yoga Day (IYD), which is celebrated every year on June 21st.
All locations where yoga events have been held for International Yoga Day and India’s 75th anniversary of independence.
In recent years, Croatia has resumed looking at other parts of the world, particularly Asia. India and Croatia currently enjoy robust bilateral political and cultural ties, and both countries are focussed on imparting greater economic content to the relationship. There is also close cooperation at the multilateral level.
The Embassy of India in Croatia has organized 75 yoga events distributed in the following five zones of 15 workshops: (1) Varaždin – Vukovar, (2) Zagreb and surroundings, (3) Kvarner, (4) Istria, and (5) Dalmatia. For the past 10 days, 30 yoga events have already been held throughout Croatia.
