Free Concert at Bundek to Celebrate Croatian Statehood Day

ddHeld under the auspices of the President of Croatia, there will be a free concert on Thursday 25 June at Zagreb’s Bundek lake park to commemorate Croatian Statehood Day…

Some big names from the Croatian music scene, including Oliver Dragojević, Parni Valjak, Gabu Novak and Prljavo kazalište, will join the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra for a night of celebration and entertainment. The concert starts at 9pm.

On 25 June 1991, the Croatian Parliament adopted its historical decision on starting the process of separation from other former Yugoslav republics. This decision was preceded by a referendum held on 19 May 1991, where 94 percent of the citizens decided Croatia was not to remain in Yugoslavia but was to achieve independence. The 25th of June is therefore celebrated as the Croatian Statehood Day.
