Concert Held in Belgrade for Croatia’s Independence Day

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, October 8, 2019 – The Dubrovnik Piano Trio on Monday held a concert in Belgrade’s Church of St. Anthony of Padua to mark Croatia’s Independence Day, and the event was also attended by Croatian Embassy staff headed by Ambassador Gordan Bakota and Zagreb City Assembly chair Drago Prgomet.

Bakota said the event provided an opportunity to recall Croatia’s path from a country fighting for its independence to a country that was a member of all international organisations and would soon be chairing the EU.

Warning against both national and social populism, Prgomet called for building a state that would provide equal opportunities to all, regardless of their political affiliation, ethnicity or religion.

“I believe that we will continue to build (Croatia) as a country which is tolerant and open to all who accept it as independent – both those who live in it and its neighbours,” said Prgomet, who earlier in the day visited Subotica and Tavankut in the Serbian province of Vojvodina, which have sizeable Croat communities.

Bakota and Prgomet said they would like the Belgrade city authorities to soon fulfil their promise and provide premises for the Croatian Cultural Centre, which exists as an association but does not have premises where to hold cultural events such as the concert by the Dubrovnik Piano Trio.
