“She has arrived in Zadar on vacation, but is spending her free time training. She chose Falkensteiner’s elite resort in Petrčane as her temporary residence, and for now it is not known how long she will stay in Croatia,” 24sata said.
A few years ago sister Serena spent time also training in Croatia. In 2014 she spent time in Novigrad in Istria training.
