MELBOURNE, 21 January 2020 – A good day so far for the Croatian players involved in action at the 2020 Australian Open in Melbourne on Tuesday.  

Donna Vekic, who is the tournament’s 19th seed, has knocked out former world no. 1 and 5-time Grand Slam winner Maria Sharapova in straight sets. 

Vekic confirmed her status as the favourite against the 145th ranked Russian when she broke twice in the opening set and the Osijek-born player needed just 1 hour and 21 minutes to beat Sharapova 6-3, 6-4.

In the second round, Vekic will meet the winner of the match between world no. 61 Alize Cornet and qualifier Monika Niculescu.

Australian Open: Donna Vekic and Marin Cilic Join Martic in Second Round

January 21, 2020 - After Petra Martic moved to the second round on Monday and Borna Coric was surprisingly knocked out in the first, three more Croatian representatives took to the courts on Tuesday - Marin Cilic, Donna Vekic and Ivo Karlovic.

Marin Cilic had a convincing performance in the first round of this year's Australian Open, defeating the recent finalist of the ATP tournament in Doha, Frenchman Corentin Moutet (ATP—70) - 6:3, 6:2, 6:4.

Cilic won the first set after a break in the sixth game, and in the second set, he took Moutet’s serve in the first and fifth games. Cilic, however, had a bit more work in the third set, though in the fifth game, a decisive break gave him the victory, in which he recorded nine aces with a first-serve percentage of 62 percent.

His next opponent is the 21st tennis player in the world, Frenchman Benoit Paire. They have played on five occasions so far, and Marin has recorded four wins. 

Donna Vekic will also play in the second round of the Australian Open for the fifth time in her career. Namely, the 23-year-old Osijek native and 19th-seed of the tournament was too strong for former best tennis player in the world, Russian Maria Sharapova (WTA-145) - 6:3, 6:4. 

Donna had no problems in the first set and quickly went to 5:1 to resolve any doubts. However, in the second set, Sharapova played much better, and after a break in the fourth game, later led 4:1. 

Donna then kicked into gear and, with five consecutive games, reached her first success against Sharapova. Sharapova previously celebrated at the 2018 Roland Garros tournament. 

On her way to victory, Donna recorded three aces with a first-serve percentage of 52 percent, and used all four break-points on her opponent’s serve. In the second round, Vekic will play the winner of Cornet - Niculescu.

The Ivo Karlovic and Vasek Pospisil game is currently underway.

Hello, 2020: Break Time Kicks Off New Year with Jewelry Franchise

January 21, 2020 -  Beginning 2020 in a big way - introducing the Break Time franchise!

A new year calls for new beginnings, and one famous nautical jewelry brand in Croatia is wasting no time with their New Year’s resolution.

After celebrating the fourth anniversary of their first shop, with a collection of shops from Dubrovnik to Istria (Porec and Rovinj), and Zagreb since then, Break Time is turning a new leaf. 

“During these four years, we have also constantly received requests for distribution not just from Croatian shops, but also from literally everywhere in the world, from Dubai to Costa Rica. Since all Break Time products were handmade by my partner - our brand artisan, Leonard Copoiu, we very rarely agreed to have a presence in third-party stores.

During this time, we have constantly improved on our products, innovated and added new collections, while - at the same time - learning more and more about managing a growing retail business, what works and what doesn't, how to improve and how to meet and exceed customers' expectations. 

We have realized that there is a trending and niche market for original handmade products, such as our quality nautical jewelry and also for monobrand brick-and-mortar stores offering great shopping experiences, just the two of us (me and my partner, Leonard) opening more stores is not going to be sustainable,â€� Break Time wrote at the beginning of the month. 


Thus, this week, Break Time nautical jewelry announced that it is ready to share their brand with the world and officially launched a franchise for all fans of sea-inspired artisan jewelry! 

“It took us five years to perfect our handcrafted nautical jewelry, to deliver great customer experiences, to gather enough retail-running knowledge, to make enough mistakes and learn from them.

We are now ready to share our brand to the world, so say hello to the Break Time Franchise!� said owners Mirela Rus and Leonard Copoiu upon announcing the big news.

So, if you’re looking for a new business opportunity that:

  • Is easy to run, even if you have little experience in retail
  • Has proven business results and brings waves of success - fast
  • Belongs to an attractive, niche market
  • Sells unique products that have taken the market by the storm

...then choose one of the available dates/times, fill in the questionnaire as accurately and in detail as you can, and get a FREE DISCOVERY CALL with the Break Time brand owners, Mirela Rus and Leonard Copoiu, to help you decide if this business is right for you.

With the big franchise news, Break Time has also announced that it will be scaling back on their shops and only maintaining the two Split stores (Trogirska 8 and Zadarska 1), where Mirela and Leonard are based. 

“This change will allow us to keep our focus on producing exquisite quality handmade nautical jewelry (of course, Leonard will continue to make part of the products himself and he will also have a team around him to help with the production, while he will still be the one supervising each and every one of the Break Time items being made) and grow our brand through like-minded entrepreneurs such as ourselves, who are looking to invest in a proven business idea and open their own franchise Break Time stores in tourist-oriented coastal towns across the world,â€� the owners added.

We’d say that 2020 is off to a running start for Break Time! 

To make sure you never miss a Break Time beat, follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube, and check out the new Break Time website here.

Looking for Car-Friendly Accommodation in Dubrovnik? Why You Should Skip the Center

Looking for Car-Friendly Accommodation in Dubrovnik? Why You Should Skip the Center

January 21, 2020 - Did you know that the City of Dubrovnik will establish a traffic congestion zone around the historic core of the city, which could ultimately affect tourists renting in the area? 

Namely, the first phase of this traffic solution will relate to tourist buses and passenger cars 8 + 1, or vans, which is expected already in the upcoming tourist season.

“The City is working on introducing a congestion zone around the City. In the first phase of the project, four cameras will be erected in the area near the public garage on Zagreba�ka Street, above the Tourist School at the exit towards Ul. Druge dalmatinske brigade, one camera will be at Pile and one on Ul. branitelja Dubrovnika. These are modern, up-to-date camera systems that will be able to recognize vehicle plates as well as vehicle dimensions,� explained Djuro Šutalo.

So, what are these cameras for, anyway?

This video surveillance will facilitate the detection of vehicles that are in the traffic congestion zone outside the reserved term, or are staying longer than the allowed time at Pile or Plo�e. Misdemeanor proceedings will be conducted for vehicles without a valid permit.

More specifically, only vehicles with privileged tickets will be able to pass through the area around the historic center, which are residents of the City of Dubrovnik and the neighboring municipalities.

“In 2020, we are introducing the first phase for buses and vans, and this year we will see how the system works,â€� said Å utalo. Whether tourists will be able to get to their apartments, for example, those renting in PloÄ�e, is a question that worries many renters - and there is a considerable number in the area. 

At this point, Å utalo cannot answer that question.

We do know that taxi drivers can travel freely through Zagreba�ka Street this year, though changes could be possible for taxis come 2021, depending on how the new system flows.

The City believes that establishing a traffic congestion zone around the historic core of the City, as well as other traffic solutions they introduce, will achieve systematic management and development of the traffic system. Above all, there will be significant relief from traffic around the historic core.

So, what will this mean for renters? 

If you’re traveling to Dubrovnik by car, whether it is with your personal vehicle or transfer service, think about booking accommodation outside the busy city center. 

Make your life even easier by booking with Solo Transfers. You can check out their rates to Dubrovnik on their website

We went through a difficult period and were able to deliver some fantastic ships while maintaining a high level of expertise in our shipyard. Together with the new owner, we have long-term plans. This will be a new and exciting period for all of Kleven's employees,'' stated CEO Kjetil Bollestad.

VIENNA, 20 January 2020 – Croatia has remained unbeaten at the 2020 European Men’s Handball Championship after defeating the Czech Republic in the Main Round on Monday. 

Lino Cervar rested a number of players following the nail-bitting victory over Germany on Saturday which secured a semi-final spot for the Croatians.

With two rounds remaining in the Main Round, Croatia has six points and faced bottom-placed Czech Republic this afternoon. Both teams went goal for goal in the opening stages before Croatia managed to edge ahead towards the end of the first half thanks to some great saves from Matej Asanin. 

Leading 11-9 at the break, Croatia would enjoy a four-goal lead early in the second half when Ilija Brozovic finished off a move. The Czech Republic came back and would equalise 16-16 with 14 minutes left in the match. 

Czech Republic fought hard but some good saves from Asanin and a last second goal from Luka Stepancic helped Croatia win a close match 22-21. 

The result means that if Croatia beats Spain on Wednesday in the last Main Round game, then they will be in no. 1 spot and will play the second-placed team in the other Main Round group.

The 24-team European Men’s Handball Championship is being co-hosted for the first time in three countries, Austria, Norway and Sweden. 

The semi-finals will be played on 24 January in Stockholm, with the final taking place on 26 January also in Stockholm.

SPLIT, 20 January 2020 – Last year, Croatian shipyard Brodosplit handed over the polar cruise ship ‘Hondius’ to Oceanside Expeditions. 

Now the shipyard in the Dalmatian city of Split has begun construction of a second polar for the Dutch company. Brodosplit says completing the first polar cruise ship on time and being of high quality, resulted in another order. 

Just before Christmas, the processing of steel for the New Construction 485 begun on the limousine cutting machine took place at the Split shipyard.

The new boat will be 107.6 meters long, 17.6 meters wide, and 15 knots will be provided by two main engines with a total power of 4260 kW. It will be able to accommodate 196 passengers housed in 85 cabins, which will be cared for by 70 crew members. They will offer their passengers a high standard of hotel as well as various categories of cabins, from spacious suites to double and quadruple cabins, where they will be able to stay safely and comfortably with multiple secured systems serving them.

“Construction is expected to be completed for the 2021 Arctic season. We plan to hand it over even earlier,� said Tomislav Debeljak, CEO of Brodosplit.

“When we decided to build a ship like this, no shipyard in the Netherlands and Germany could give me a guarantee that the ship would be completed within the time limit we wanted. Because of this, we contacted the management of the Split shipyard, which accepted our construction deadlines and guaranteed that the ship would be completed on time. And they obeyed all that was agreed. It is not easy to build such a ship, but with the cooperation of our team of experts and experts from the Split shipyard, the ship was built within the agreed deadline. That’s why I decided that we would build another ship in Split,â€� Wijnand van Gessel, owner of Oceanwide Expeditions, noted at the handover of ‘Hondius’ in May.

“This is proof that it can survive if sophisticated ships are built and something that others do not. We have shown that Croatian shipbuilding has the knowledge that has never been questioned, and we at DIV Group have proven that we can do positive business with our approach,” said Debeljak.

Zvonimir Novak, Assistant Minister of Economy and Rudjer Friganovic Director of Croatian Shipbuilding-Jadranbrod and numerous representatives of guides and partners in the city were present at the steel cutting ceremony.
