Isolation for Croatian Islanders

A proposal from Croatia’s Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure to rationalise ships and ferry traffic from the Croatian islands to the mainland during the winter period, has set off a series of angry reactions.

The islanders say that during the winter period the connections from the islands to the mainland is bad enough, and that further reductions will just isolate the islanders further.

The Ministry is set to reduce ferry and ship lines in an attempt to save around 38 million kuna (5 million euros), reported Croatian radiotelevision.

“Further reductions will be a killer for the island of Vis, the talk of cancelling 3 lines will take the island back 6 years,” said Vis resident Tonka Ivicevic.
