The oldest person living in Croatia is 106. Two people, both women, in the 2011 census in Croatia shared the record age as results were finally released by the Central Bureau of Statistics on Monday.
One of the record-holders, 106-year-old ‘Baka” (Grandma) Ljubica has since passed away, and her grandson has told portal Index.hr the secrets of her longevity.
“She never ate meat, never smoked and was known to drink 200ml of only red wine,” said Mico. There were 81 women and 21 men who were over 100 according to census results in 2011.
