A. Grubelić

Poštovani putnici!

Dear passengers,

Uistinu me raduje što smo ponovno zajedno na našim letovima. Nadam se da je najzahtjevnije vrijeme epidemiološke krize izazvane virusom COVID-19 iza nas te nastavljamo normalizaciju prometa s kojom smo započeli tijekom svibnja i lipnja. Naša kompanija dijeli sudbinu cijele zrakoplovne industrije u Europi i svijetu, ali mi nismo prekidali prometovanje čak ni u najtežim trenucima krize. Osim redovitih letova za Frankfurt, obavljali smo i letove kojima smo prevozili medicinske potrepštine i humanitarnu pomoć te repatrijacijske charter letove za hrvatske državljane koji se nisu mogli vratiti kući. Nažalost, učinci krize nisu se mogli izbjeći pa je tako do kraja svibnja broj letova smanjen za 53 posto, a u zrakoplovima je prevezeno 60 posto manje putnika u odnosu na isto razdoblje lani. Putnici su za nas uvijek na prvome mjestu, a osobito u vrijeme koronavirusa, kad im nastojimo pružiti dodatnu brigu i pažnju. Croatia Airlines poštuje sve mjere zaštite nadležnih javnozdravstvenih tijela te zrakoplovnih vlasti, a jedna je od njih objava našega putnog časopisa online. Ne sumnjam da ćete i u ovome online izdanju pronaći teme koje vas zanimaju. Predstavljamo vam našega istaknutog pijanista Mateja Meštrovića, vodimo vas na Viški arhipelag, koji je UNESCO lani proglasio geoparkom, pozivamo vas i u naš Zagreb koji nudi brojna ljetna događanja na otvorenome, otkrivamo savršena mjesta za aktivni turizam − letenje, ronjenje, bicikliranje, planinarenje − pogodna upravo za ovo vrijeme u kojemu više nego inače pazimo jedni na druge i održavamo fizičku udaljenost. Svima koji dolaze u našu lijepu zemlju želim ugodan odmor i zahvaljujem što letite Croatia Airlinesom.

I’m really happy to have you on our flights again. I hope that the most challenging period of the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us and that we’ll continue to normalise our traffic, which we started during May and June. Our company shares the fate of the entire aviation industry in Europe and the world, although we didn’t bring traffic to a complete halt, not even in the most difficult moments of the crisis. Besides regular flights to Frankfurt, we also operated flights that carried medical supplies and humanitarian aid, and chartered repatriation flights for Croatian citizens. Unfortunately, the effects of the crisis couldn’t be avoided, so by the end of May the number of flights was reduced by 53%, and the number of passengers by 60% compared to the same period last year. Passengers always come first with us, particularly during this coronavirus pandemic, when we look to provide them with extra care and attention. Croatia Airlines respects all protective measures introduced by the competent public health and aviation authorities, one of which is publishing our magazine online. I’ve no doubt that you’ll find topics of interest even in this online edition. We’re presenting our prominent pianist Matej Meštrović, we’re taking you to the Vis archipelago which was declared a geopark by UNESCO last year, we’re inviting you to Zagreb which is organising many outdoor events during summer, we’re discovering places perfect for active holidaying − flying, diving, cycling, hiking − and ideally suited for the present time in which we’ve taken care of each other more than normally whilst maintaining social distancing. I wish everyone coming to our beautiful country a great holiday and thank you for flying with Croatia Airlines.

rezonantnoj kutiji, koja je dugo odzvanjala. Također, uz klavir sam od malih nogu učio svirati i blok flautu. Na jednom od svojih prvih nastupa na blok flauti, kad mi je bilo pet ili šest godina, improvizirao sam na vlastitu temu − vještica. Mama je na magnetofonsku vrpcu snimila jednu moju klavirsku improvizaciju 1975. godine. Pitala me što ću svirati, a ja sam odgovorio: U moru šum. Odsvirao sam improvizaciju koja je trajala 22 minute. I danas imam tu snimku.  Koji je događaj bio presudan u vašem opredjeljenju za glazbu, koja će postati vaš život i smisao života? − Kad mi je bilo 14 godina, prošao sam kroz neku vrstu krize. Vježbao sam klavir nekoliko sati na dan, a nakon vježbanja

jednako toliko godina otkako ste se počeli baviti glazbom. Naime, pokazali ste sklonost prema klaviru i glazbi već u dobi od četiri godine, kad ste spontano zasvirali. No možda je ta ljubav kod vas začeta još i ranije. Naime, vaša majka, poznata i ugledna pijanistica i klavirska pedagoginja Sretna Meštrović, bila je u drugom stanju dok je pripremala i izvodila Mozartov koncert u Hrvatskome glazbenom zavodu. Moglo bi se reći da ste već tada intuitivno osjetili ljepotu glazbe, što je možda odredilo i vaš životni put. Koliko se sjećate svojeg početka života s glazbom i svojevrsne spontane posvećenosti glazbi? − Uvijek govorim da sam bio na pozornici prije nego što sam se rodio. Važno

lavirist i skladatelj Matej Meštrović zaista s lakoćom obilazi svjetske destinacije, kao što i s jednakom neobjašnjivom lakoćom nastupa i osvaja publiku na svim meridijanima svijeta. Održavao je koncerte u SAD-u, Kanadi, Kini, Australiji, Europi... No na prvi pogled jednostavan i ležeran nastup ovoga poznatog i priznatog umjetnika rezultat je dugogodišnjeg rada, talenta, upornosti, entuzijazma i ljubavi. U ugodnoj atmosferi doma Mateja Meštrovića u blizini Zagreba, u pitoresknom i mirnom ambijentu u kojem živi, razgovarali smo iskreno i otvoreno o svemu što je utkao u svoj glazbeni put.  Nevjerojatno zvuči podatak da ste navršili 50 godina života, ali i gotovo

je pritom naglasiti da nije samo koncert koji je moja majka 1969. godine održala u HGZ-u utjecao na moj razvoj nego i činjenica da je tijekom cijele trudnoće vježbala za taj koncert svaki dan. Kada sam imao otprilike jednu godinu, moja se majka vratila s nekog koncerta s velikim buketom cvijeća koji je dobila. Ugledavši to cvijeće, moja prva riječ bila je cvijeće. S četiri godine počeo sam se s mamom igrati na klaviru. Počeo sam istraživati taj čarobni instrument i čar glazbe... Nisam najprije učio note nego sam uz igru zapravo svladavao improvizaciju. Proučavao sam klavir, ne samo tipke klavira nego cijeli instrument. Uvlačio sam se pod klavir i kucao rukom odozdo po njegovoj

pijanističkog repertoara improvizirao sam na vlastite teme. Tad sam rekao mami da ne želim biti pijanist, da me ispiše iz muzičke škole. Ona mi je odgovorila da može, ali da više nikada neću smjeti dodirnuti klavir, što je značilo da neću više smjeti svirati ni vlastite improvizacije. Taj trenutak pamtim kao sudbinski preokret u kojem sam shvatio da ne mogu živjeti bez glazbe.  Albert Einstein jednom je rekao da bi vjerojatno bio glazbenik da nije fizičar, da svoje dnevne maštarije proživljava kroz glazbu te da svoj život vidi kroz smisao glazbe. Jeste li kad razmišljali o tome čime biste se bavili da niste pijanist?


to biti glazba koju ljudi žele slušati i u njoj uživati, kupiti CD. Zato je veoma važna priča, jednostavna i razumljiva, te da ljudi već na prvi pogled s naslovnice CD-a naslute kakvu glazbu mogu očekivati.  Upravo o tome svjedoči naslovnica vašeg novog CD-a Tri rapsodije za klavir i orkestar i primjer je posvećenosti glazbenom djelu kao sveobuhvatnom projektu. Naslovnica je toliko kreativna i uočljiva da neizostavno privlači pozornost. Na naslovnici svirate na koncertnom klaviru na vrhu našeg planeta, a iza vas je veliki orkestar uronjen u svemirsko bespuće. Već takav omot pobuđuje znatiželju, istodobno stvarajući osjećaj tajnovitosti, pa se pitamo

sodije. U takvim produkcijskim uvjetima moj dugogodišnji san mogao se početi ostvarivati. Motiv je uvijek isti − stvarati, stvarati, stvarati novu glazbu... Izraziti sve što osjećam upravo kroz glazbu jer glazba je jezik koji najbolje govorim.  Posebno je zanimljivo kako ste u svojoj uspješnoj glazbenoj putanji na vrijeme shvatili da danas nije dovoljno samo kvalitetno prezentirati glazbu nego jednako uspješno i kreativno prezentirati zanimljivu priču... − Živimo u dobu kad je sve oko nas proizvod. Glazba nije proizvod i iznimno je važno znati komunicirati s publikom o tome o kakvoj je glazbi riječ. Moramo znati kome se glazbom obraćamo. Treba

što možemo očekivati od glazbe koja se krije iza njega. − Da, upravo tako. Morate znati da osim produkcije CD-a PARMA Recordings potpisuje i naslovnicu. Proces kroz koji se stvara naslovnica jest fantastičan. PARMA pošalje veliki upitnik s puno pitanja i grafičkih rješenja dosadašnjih njihovih izdanja, a od mene kao autora traže odgovore na ta pitanja. Na temelju mojih odgovora, ovisno o tome što ja želim komunicirati u javnosti, oni dizajniraju naslovnicu. To je zajednički proces u kojem je najvažnije imati viziju. Jednako je bilo i s naslovnicom za Vivaldija. Obje su naslovnice uistinu sjajne jer odmah daju naslutiti o čemu je riječ na tim albumima.

Music Awards. Što vas je motiviralo za ovaj pothvat koji je već u kratkom roku doživio uspjeh? − Nakon Vivaldija shvatio sam da je vrijeme za još mnogo veći izazov. Za kompletan autorski album s orkestrom. Već duže vrijeme želio sam napisati nešto veliko, grandiozno, za klavir i orkestar. To je nešto najljepše što sam si mogao priuštiti kao pijanist, ali i kompozitor. Budući da sam ekskluzivni umjetnik PARMA Recordingsa iz SAD-a, svaki moj korak zajedno pomno analiziramo i dogovaramo unaprijed. Nakon prvog albuma Vivaldija upravo za PARMU, logičan je slijed bio da napišem posve autorski album. PARMA Recordings me u tome maksimalno podržao i uložio sredstva u Tri rap-

− Da nisam pijanist i kompozitor, bio bih dirigent. Da se ponovo rodim i mogu birati čime bih se bavio u životu, to bi bila samo glazba.  Postali ste osobito poznati u glazbenom svijetu po svojoj specifičnoj interpretaciji Četiri godišnja doba za klavir Antonija Vivaldija. Zašto baš Vivaldi? − Jedini sam kompozitor na svijetu koji je napisao autorsku obradu Vivaldijeva Četiri godišnja doba za tri klavira. Važan je naglasak na autorskoj obradi jer postoji mnogo transkripcija izvornog Vivaldijeva materijala napisanih za druge instrumente, ali malo se kompozitora usudilo dirnuti u Vivaldija tako da autorski intervenira u njegovo možda i najpoznatije djelo. Vivaldi je za mene bio ogroman

02

izazov. Kad sam bio mali, Vivaldi kao da mi je prišao i rekao: Kad narasteš, poigraj se sa mnom kao da si dijete... i tako sam se poigrao sa sva četiri godišnja doba. Poštujući njegovu strukturu kao i kompletan poredak svih 12 stavaka, dao sam si autorsku slobodu intervenirati na svim dijelovima koje sam želio autorski obraditi.  Ništa manju pozornost domaće i svjetske glazbene javnosti nisu izazvale i vaše Tri rapsodije za klavir i orkestar. Riječ je o vrlo zanimljivu projektu s tri različite cjeline i glazbene specifičnosti, za koji ste lani dobili uglednu nagradu Gold Medal Winner − Best of Show koju dodjeljuje Global

 Nazivi koje ste dali rapsodijama u vašem projektu Tri rapsodije za klavir i orkestar također su zanimljivi. Zašto Dunavska, Kineska i New England rapsodija? − Sve je počelo prije nekoliko godina. Počeo sam pisati veliko djelo za klavir i orkestar i ideja je bila da se Dunavskom rapsodijom i njezinom praizvedbom otvori prvi DunavArt Festival u Vukovaru. Ali ispalo je drukčije. Dobio sam poziv za

Kineska rapsodija. I na kraju, kako su moji izdavači PARMA Recordings smješteni u američkoj regiji New England, upravo sam njima posvetio zadnju rapsodiju i tako je i nazvao.  Kako je započela suradnja s tom izdavačkom kućom koja je prepoznala vašu nadarenost? − Veoma jednostavno. Pronašao sam ih na internetu i poslao im e−mail u kojem sam se predstavio, poslao linkove na svoju glazbu,

− U trenutku kada je Bobo Lord, CEO izdavačke kuće PARMA, čuo kompjutorsku simulaciju Dunavske rapsodije i dobio partituru, rekao mi je: Moram te odvesti u Ameriku. Prošlo je dva mjeseca i dobio sam poziv iz Carnegie Halla. Ono na što sam posebno ponosan jest činjenica da sam nastupio u najprestižnijoj velikoj dvorani, Isaac Stern Auditorium, u kojoj je od naših pijanista svirao samo Ivo Pogorelić. No također mogu napomenuti da sam jedi01 Most Hendrix u Zagrebu, nagrada Illuminating Engineering Society 2018.

svjetsku praizvedbu Dunavske rapsodije u Carnegie Hallu. Čim sam napisao Dunavsku, koja traje 30 minuta, u meni je počeo kuhati novi projekt i shvatio sam da moram napisati još jednu ili dvije rapsodije kako bi se projekt zaokružio. Želio sam jednu rapsodiju posvetiti Dunavu, veličanstvenoj europskoj rijeci, a onda sam pomislio kako bi bilo lijepo ići još dalje i obuhvatiti čitav svijet. Tako je nastala i

a nakon što sam na Dubrovačkim ljetnim igrama imao svjetsku praizvedbu Vivaldija za tri klavira s Matijom Dedićem i Hakanom Ali Tokerom, poslao sam im videozapis s tog koncerta. Za 15 dana ponudili su mi ugovor.  Jedan je od vaših velikih svjetskih uspjeha svakako i nastup u prestižnom Carnegie Hallu u New Yorku. Kako je do toga došlo?

ni hrvatski kompozitor koji je u toj dvorani imao svjetsku praizvedbu vlastite kompozicije za klavir i orkestar. No uspjeh nikada ne dolazi preko noći. Iza mene je gotovo 50 godina svakodnevnog rada. Radim svaki dan i po desetak sati. Sviram, komponiram i vježbam. Poziv iz Carnegie Halla stigao je nakon što sam neumorno radio čitav život, a takva dvorana itekako gleda na prvorazrednu kvalitetu svega što se u

e travels the world with the same inexplicable ease with which he performs and captivates audiences across the globe. He’s performed in the USA, Canada, China, Australia and Europe. But, what may at first glance seem like a simple and laid-back performance of his is, in fact, the result of years of work, talent, persistence, enthusiasm and love. We talked frankly and openly to Matej Meštrović about everything he’s woven into his musical journey in the comfort of his home near Zagreb, a picturesque and peaceful environment.  The fact that you recently turned 50 and that you’ve been making music for almost just as long sounds incredible. You had a penchant for the piano and

music already at the age of four, when you started playing music spontaneously. This love of yours for music may have been conceived even earlier. Your mother, Sretna Meštrović, a well-known and distinguished pianist and piano teacher, was pregnant with you while preparing for and performing a Mozart concert at the Croatian Music Institute. You may have intuitively felt the beauty of music already back then, which may

practising for that particular concert every single day of her pregnancy. When I was about a year old, my mother came home from a concert she gave with a big bouquet of flowers she was given. Having seen the flowers, I uttered my very first word which was flower. At the age of four, I started playing with the piano together with my mom. I started exploring that magical instrument and the charm of music... Learning the notes wasn’t the first thing I did. By playing

njoj svira. Bilo je to sjajno iskustvo koje me istovremeno obvezuje da nastavim dalje i da želim više.  Poznati ste po vrlo široku spektru žanrova kojima se bavite. Klasična glazba, suvremena, filmska, a pojavljujete se i kao scenarist i redatelj za promidžbene filmove o hrvatskom turizmu. Kako uspijevate između brojnih putovanja i koncerata razvijati i uspješno obavljati tako različite glazbene i umjetničke aktivnosti? − Radim neprestano. Kad sam bio mlad i spremao se za klavirska natjecanja, sam sam sebi ponavljao rečenicu: Želiš li vježbati klavir 24 sata na dan, trebaš ustajati sat ranije.  Možda je manje poznato da ste kao klavirski aranžer pridonijeli i planetarnom uspjehu našeg popularnog pijanista Maksima Mrvice. Kako je započela ta obostrano uspješna i korisna suradnja? − S Maksimom surađujem petnaestak godina. Jednog dana nazvao me Tonči Huljić i rekao mi da je čuo kako sam ja jedini koji može pisati klavirske aranžmane za Maksima u Hrvatskoj. I tako je počela jedna lijepa suradnja koja traje i danas...  Dobili ste bezbroj domaćih i svjetskih priznanja i nagrada. Možete li neku nagradu izdvojiti kao vama osobito važnu? − Svaka nagrada u trenutku kada je dobijemo znači veliku potvrdu kvalitete projekta za koju smo je dobili. Mene osobno svaka nagrada obvezuje da idem naprijed. Ne radim radi nagrada, ali one su definitivno velik poticaj i potvrda da ste na pravom putu. 

have later determined your path of life. How much of your early life involving music and your instinctive commitment of sorts to music do you remember? − I always say I had been on stage even before I was born. It’s important to highlight that what had an influence on my development was not only the concert that my mother held at the Croatian Music Institute in 1969, but also the fact that she had been

with the piano, I actually learned how to improvise. I explored the piano, not just its keys, but the whole instrument. I used to crawl under the piano and tap my fingers against its resonance box from underneath and the box would then resonate for a long time. Besides the piano, I also learned to play the recorder, also at a young age. During one of my first recorder performances, when I was about five or six, I played an improvisation around my own theme, which was − the witch. My mother recorded one of my piano improvisations on tape back in 1975. She asked me what I was going to play, and I said: Murmur of the sea. I played a 22-minute long improvisation. I still have that recording.

 What event was decisive in your commitment to music, which was to become your life and which was to give meaning to your life? − When I was 14, I went through a crisis of sorts. I’d practise for a few hours a day, and after practising a piano repertoire, I used to play my own improvisations and themes. It was then that I told my mother that I didn’t want to be a pianist and that I wanted to drop out of music school. She said ok, adding that that implied that I would never be allowed to touch the piano again, which meant that I’d no longer be allowed to play my own improvisations. I remember that fateful moment, a turningpoint in my life, when I realised I couldn’t live without music.  Albert Einstein once said that he’d probably be a musician if he weren’t a physicist, that he lived his daydreams in music and that he saw his life in terms of music. Have you ever thought about what you would do in life if you weren’t a pianist? − If I weren’t a pianist and a composer, I’d be a conductor. If I were born again and could choose what to do in life, it would again be music.  You’ve become particularly famous in the world of music for your specific interpretation of Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons for piano. Why Vivaldi? − I’m the only composer in the world who authored an adaptation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons for three pianos. The emphasis here is on the fact that the adaptation is authored because there are many transcriptions of Vivaldi’s original material written for other instruments, and only very few composers have dared to touch Vivaldi by authoring an intervention in what is his perhaps most famous work. Vivaldi was an enormous challenge for me. When I was a little boy, I felt as if Vivaldi had approached me and said: When you grow up, play with me the way a child would. That’s how I ended up playing with all four of his seasons. Respecting their structure and the order of all the 12 concertos, I indulged in artistic licence and intervened in all the parts that I wanted to interpret as an author.  Your 3 Rhapsodies for piano and orchestra received just as much attention in the world as they did in Croatia. They’re a very interesting project involving three different pieces featuring different musical specificiti-

es, for which you received the prestigious Gold Medal Winner − Best of Show award given by the Global Music Awards last year. What motivated you to embark on this project which has met with success within a very short period of time? − After Vivaldi, I realised that it was time for an even bigger challenge, that the time was ripe for me to write an original album involving an orchestra. I had wanted to compose something big and grand for piano and orchestra for a long time. It’s the most beautiful thing I could do as both a pianist and a composer. Given that I have the status of exclusive artist with the US-based PARMA Recordings record company, we analyse with great care and curate each of my steps together and in advance. After my first Vivaldi album for PARMA, composing an original album was the next logical thing to do. PARMA Recordings gave me their full support and invested in the 3 Rhapsodies. Given such production conditions, I could finally fulfil my lifelong dream. There’s only one thing that drives me and it’s always the same − create new music, and then create some more new music; express everything I feel through music because music’s the language I speak best.  What’s particularly interesting in your successful career as a musician is that you realised in time that today presenting music brilliantly isn’t enough, and that presenting an interesting story successfully and creatively is just as important... − We live in an age when everything around us is a product. Music isn’t a product and knowing how to communicate the type of music you’re making to the audience is extremely important. We need to know whom our music is addressing. It should be music that people want to listen to and enjoy, and buy a CD of. That’s why the story behind it is very important. It’s got to be simple and understandable. By taking a quick look at the cover of the CD, people should be able to tell what kind of music they can expect to hear.  This is exactly what the cover of your new album 3 Rhapsodies for piano and orchestra testifies to. It’s an example of your commitment to music as an all-embracing project. The cover is so creative and captivating that it draws your attention instantly. On the cover, you play the grand piano at the


Seasons for 3 Pianos with Matija Dedić and Hakan Ali Toker at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, I sent them a video recording of the concert. They offered me a contract in as little as 15 days.  Giving a performance at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York is certainly one of your greatest international successes. How did that come about? − When Bobo Lord, the CEO of PARMA Recordings, heard the computer simulation of the Danube Rhapsody and got its score, he said: I have to bring you to America. Two months later, I received a call from Carnegie Hall. What I’m immensely proud of is the fact that I performed in the Isaac Stern Auditorium, Carnegie Hall’s inesti-

S. Ćetković

top of our planet, and behind you a philharmonic orchestra is immersed in infinite universe. The cover arouses curiosity and creates a sense of mystery, making us wonder what we can expect from the music hiding behind it. − Exactly. You need to know that PARMA Recordings not only produced the CD, but also designed its cover. The process through which the cover’s created is fantastic. PARMA Recordings send you a detailed questionnaire with lots of questions and the graphic solutions for their previous recordings and albums. Being the author, I was asked to fill it in. They then design the cover based on my responses and it all depends on what I want to communicate to the public. It’s the result of joint work and effort, in which the most important thing is having a vision. The cover for my Vivaldi album was created in the exact same way. Both covers are really great because they immediately give you a clue as to what these two albums are about.  The titles you’ve given to your 3 Rhapsodies for piano and orchestra are also fascinating. Tell us why they’re called the Danube, the Chinese and the New England Rhapsody? − It all started a few years ago. I started composing a big piece for the piano and an orchestra, and the idea was to open the first DunavArt Festival in Vukovar with the premiere of my Danube Rhapsody. But things turned out differently. I received an invitation to have the world premiere of the Danube Rhapsody at Carnegie Hall. As soon as I composed my 30-minute long Danube Rhapsody, a new project started stirring in me, and I realised that I had to write one or two more rhapsodies to complete the project. I wanted to dedicate one rhapsody to the Danube, Europe’s greatest river, and then I thought that it would be nice to go even further and embrace the whole world. That’s how I composed the Chinese Rhapsody. And finally, given that my record company, PARMA Recordings, is headquartered in New England, I decided to dedicate the last rhapsody to them, which is why it’s called the New England Rhapsody.  How did your collaboration with PARMA Recordings, a record company that recognised your talent, begin? − It was very simple. I found them on the Internet, sent them an email introducing myself and sent links to my music. After I performed the world premiere of Vivaldi’s 4

ence in scriptwriting and directing promotional films about Croatia’s tourism. How do you manage to be involved and successful in such different musical and creative activities on top of your travels and performances? − I work all the time. When I was young and preparing for piano competitions, I kept saying to myself: If you want to practise the piano 24 hours a day, you must get up an hour earlier.  It’s a lesser-known fact that, as an arranger, you’ve contributed to the global success of Croatia’s popular pianist Maksim Mrvica. How did this successful and mutually beneficial collaboration begin?

mable concert hall, and that the only other Croatian pianist to have performed in it is Ivo Pogorelić. Another fact worth singling out is that I’m the only Croatian composer who had the world premiere of his own composition for the piano and an orchestra in that hall. But success doesn’t happen overnight. I’ve invested almost 50 years of daily work in achieving what I’ve achieved. I work about ten hours every day. I play the piano, I compose and I practise. The call from Carnegie Hall came after I had been working tirelessly my entire life. What such a hall prides itself on is that, in it, only first-class music is played. It was a great experience obliging me to continue and to aim for more.  You’re known for your interest in a very wide range of music genres. Besides playing classical, contemporary and film music, you also have experi-

− I’ve been working with Maksim for fifteen years. One day, Tonči Huljić, a widely known Croatian music producer and manager, called me and said that he had heard that I was the only one in Croatia who could write piano arrangements for Maksim. This is how our beautiful collaboration started and we’ve been working together ever since.  You’ve received countless national and international accolades and awards. Can you single out an award as being particularly important to you? − Each award is confirmation of the quality of the project which the award is received for. Personally, every award I’ve received obliges me to go forward. I don’t work to receive awards, but they’re definitely a great incentive and confirmation that I’m on the right track. 

PRVI HRVATSKI GEOPARK NA JADRANU CROATIA’S FIRST GEOPARK IN THE ADRIATIC Piše/By _ Joško Božanić Fotografije/Photos _ Ivo Pervan

Prije nešto više od jedne godine, Izvršni odbor UNESCO-a proglasio je Viški arhipelag geoparkom. Ovom povijesnom odlukom ostvaren je velik cilj − svjetska valorizacija nekad izoliranog i strancima nepristupačnog pučinskog otočja s najgušćom koncentracijom spomenika prirode u Europi. Just over a year ago, the UNESCO Executive Board declared the Vis archipelago a geopark. This historic decision achieved a great goal − the global validation of what was once an isolated outlying archipelago which was inaccessible to foreigners and which boasts the densest concentration of natural heritage sites in Europe.

Geološka povijest Dvije godine nakon pokretanja inicijative s otoka Visa u suradnji s Hrvatskim geološkim institutom iz Zagreba, te uz potporu lokalne zajednice Grada Visa, Grada Komiže, Gradine Vis d.o.o. i osobito Nautičkog centra iz Komiže, ostvaren je velik cilj − svjetska valorizacija nekad izoliranog i strancima nepristupačnog pučinskog otočja s najgušćom koncentracijom spomenika prirode u Europi. Hrvatska je dobila prvi geopark na Jadranu. Viški arhipelag jadranski je prostor u čijem je središtu otok Vis kojemu pripada niz otoka: Ravnik, Budikovac, Jabuka, Brusnik, Sveti Andrija, Biševo i Palagruža. Ovo je jedini prostor Jadrana unutar kojega je u geološkoj prošlosti (prije 220 milijuna godina) došlo do velikih geoloških promjena prodorom dijapira − mase dubinske prasoli koja je provalila prema površini uzdižući sedimentne ploče formirane petrifikacijom pijeska i ljuštura organizama (školjki). Jadranski otoci zapravo su nekadašnji vrhovi planina koje su se uzdigle nad ravnicom po kojoj su tekle rijeke Krka, Cetina i Neretva do dalekih planina koje će se zbog porasta razine mora na kraju mlađeg glacijala, prije dvanaest tisuća godina, pretvoriti u jadranske otoke. Rajska oaza Mediterana Svjetski fond za zaštitu prirode WWF proglasio je 2003. Viški arhipelag jednom od deset posljednjih rajskih oaza

Mediterana vrednujući njegove prirodne posebnosti (spomenici prirode, ekološko očuvanje okoliša, bioraznolikost) te kulturni identitet (nasljeđe prethodnih generacija u materijalnoj i nematerijalnoj baštini, povijesne reference otoka kao raskrižja morskih putova koji je od antike do novijeg vremena bio u središtu velikih povijesnih događaja na Jadranu). Modra špilja Godine 1884. bečki slikar i istraživač barun Eugen von Ransonnet-Villez otkrio je Modru špilju na malom otoku Biševu blizu otoka Visa. Ovaj je prirodni svjetlosni fenomen viškog arhipelaga, zahvaljujući bečkome slikaru Ransonnetu, postao poznat u svijetu, a mnogi posjetitelji koje je privukla senzacionalna vijest o otkriću čudesne Modre špilje na malom otočiću Biševu uspoređuju je s čuvenom špiljom Grotta azzurra na talijanskom otoku Capri blizu Napulja, koja je otkrivena prije Modre špilje. Vulkanski otok Jabuka Poput crne piramide diže se iz mora otok Jabuka udaljen 30 milja od Komiže u pravcu zapada. Godine 1958. proglašen je geološkim spomenikom prirode. Otok je visok 97 metara, a opseg mu je oko 700 metara. Građa mu je dubinski eruptiv diorit. Magnetit u njegovim stijenama remeti moreplovcima kompase te je za slabe vidljivosti otežana navigacija u njegovoj blizini.

Vulkanski otok Brusnik Na 11 milja zapadno od Komiže nalazi se otočić Brusnik. Godine 1951. zaštićen je kao geološki spomenik prirode. Otok se uzdiže visoko iznad razine mora. U sredini otoka nalazi se klanac s depresijom koju popunjava more, što su komiški ribari iskoristili te napravili od priručnih većih oblutaka bazene s morskom vodom za čuvanje ulovljenih jastoga. Zelena špilja Na otočiću Ravniku, nepun kilometar

udaljenu od obale, nalazi se Zelena špilja koja ima dva velika otvora tako da u njoj nije moguć svjetlosni efekt plavetnila kao u Modroj špilji. Njezinu atraktivnost omogućuje otvor u središtu visoke kupole kroz koji prodire sunčana svjetlost i u mraku špilje poput snopa reflektora obasjava morsko dno. Uvala Stiniva Uvala Stiniva na južnoj obali Visa proglašena je najljepšom europskom plažom 2016. Ova čudesna uvala završava

nevelikim morskim prostorom obgrljenim polukružnim visokim liticama s uskim vratima prema pučini i prostranim žalom. Slojevi sedimentnih ploča nižu se jedan nad drugim s obiju strana plaže, kao da prate oblik moguće goleme špilje koja se urušila.

obali Jadrana. Podignut je na padini južne obale prostrane sjeveroistočne uvale otoka Visa. Brojni arheološki nalazi, danas izloženi u arheološkom muzeju Visa i Splita, svjedoče o visokom civilizacijskom i kulturnom razvoju ovoga jadranskog polisa, koji je svoje bogatstvo temeljio ponajprije na proizvodnji i trgovini vinom. Grad Komiža Komiža se nalazi u središtu vulkanske tektonske aktivnosti, a njezine plaže s tamnozelenim stijenama i vulkanskim bombama nude jedinstven doživljaj i izazov za geološku interpretaciju komiškoga krajolika. Osim svoje geološke posebnosti, Komiža je povijesno najznačajniji ribarski grad u Hrvatskoj. Povijesna urbana jezgra Komiže jedinstven je primjer ribarske arhitekture. Sve kuće uz more bile su male obiteljske tvornice za soljenje ribe. Komiški ribari koji su se iselili u SAD (točnije u Kaliforniju) pridonijeli su razvoju grada San Pedra kao svjetske metropole ribarstva. Diomedov put Viški arhipelag nalazi se na Diomedovu putu, nazvanome po trojanskom junaku Diomedu, koji poslije pada Troje traži novu domovinu i nalazi je na talijanskom poluotoku Garganu. Njegovim imenom nazvan je najstariji transjadranski put koji vodi od poluotoka Gargana u Italji preko Palagruže, Biševa, Komiže do Hiličkog poluotoka (Punta planka ili Diomedov rt) kod Rogoznice u Hrvatskoj. Benediktinski put Ovaj je put poznat i kao Benediktinski put, na kojemu sljedbenici sv. Benedikta iz Nursije, monasi benediktinci, osnivaju svoje samostane (Vieste u Italiji te Palagruža, Biševo, Svetac, Komiža, Split u Hrvatskoj). Tim putem prelazi kršćanstvo sa zapadne na istočnu obalu Jadrana. Usmena predaja Komiže sačuvala je do danas uspomenu na susret pape Aleksandra III. s komiškim ribarima na Palagruži.

Falkuša, najstariji tip ribarskog broda na Mediteranu Godine 1997. obnovljena je u Komiži gajeta falkuša Comeza-Lisboa radi sudjelovanja na svjetskoj izložbi u Lisabonu EXPO 98. Kulturno-antropološka interpretacija ovoga maritimnog prostora nezamisliva je bez interpretacije povijesnog broda koji je omogućio život na ovom pučinskom frontu Jadrana. Ministarstvo kulture Republike Hrvatske zaštitilo je iskustvo gajete falkuše kao nematerijalno nacionalno kulturno dobro, ocjenjujući pritom umijeće gradnje ovog jedinstvenog tipa ribarskoga brod kao i ribarsku tradiciju povezanu s najstarijom regatom na svijetu, od Komiže do Palagruže, o čemu svjedoči dokument iz 1593. godine. Svjetska valorizacija prirodne i kulturne baštine Viškog arhipelaga Trebalo bi prepoznati proglašenje Geoparka Viški arhipelag kao jedan od najvećih povijesnih događaja u novijoj povijesti otoka Visa, kao priliku za svjetsku valorizaciju kulturne i prirodne baštine ovoga pučinskog jadranskog prostora. Takva valorizacija Visa i njegova prirodnog i kulturnog nasljeđa mogla bi pomoći u uspostavljanju modela održivog razvoja i obnovi vitaliteta te zaustavljanju demografskog propadanja otoka, a mladima dati nadu u budućnost. 

Geological history Two years after the initiative was launched by the Island of Vis itself in collaboration with the Croatian Geological Survey based

in Zagreb, and with the support of the local communities of the town of Vis, the town of Komiža, Gradina Vis Ltd. and the Komižabased Sailing Centre, a great goal was achieved − the global validation of what was once an isolated outlying archipelago which was inaccessible to foreigners and which boasts the densest concentration of natural heritage sites in Europe. Croatia got its first geopark in the Adriatic. The Vis archipelago is a group of small islands in the Adriatic scattered around the Island of Vis. These are the islands of Ravnik, Budikovac, Jabuka, Brusnik, Sveti Andrija, Biševo and Palagruža. This is the only region of ​​the Adriatic where major geological changes had taken place in geological history (i.e., 220 million years ago) thanks to the penetration of diapir − a mass of deep pre-salt that burst towards the surface raising sedimentary rock plates that had been formed by sand and the shells of different organisms petrifying. These Adriatic islands are, in reality, mountain peaks that once rose above a plain across which the rivers of Krka, Cetina and Neretva were flowing towards distant mountains that − as a result of rising sea levels at the end of the Younger Dryas some twelve thousand years ago − became islands in the Adriatic Sea. A patch of paradise in the Mediterranean In 2003, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) declared the Vis archipelago one of the last ten patches of paradise in the Mediterranean region, rating highly its natural features (natural heritage sites, environmental

protection, biodiversity) and cultural identity (the island’s lasting legacy left by previous generations, a legacy that today comprises the island’s tangible and intangible heritage; historical references to the island at the crossroads of sea routes, an island that has been at the centre of major historical events on the Adriatic since antiquity). The Blue Cave In 1884, the Vienna-born painter and explorer Baron Eugen von RansonnetVillez discovered the Blue Cave on the small Island of Biševo near the Island of Vis. Thanks to his discovery, this natural blue light phenomenon of the Vis archipelago became world-famous, with many visitors attracted by the sensational news of the discovery of the amazing Blue Cave on the islet of Biševo having immediately compared it to the famous Blue Grotto, a similar cave on the island of Capri near Naples in Italy, which was discovered before the Blue Cave. The volcanic Island of Jabuka Like a black pyramid, the Island of Jabuka rises from the sea 30 miles west of Komiža. It was declared a geological monument of nature in 1958. The island’s 97 metres high and only about 700 metres in circumference. It’s built of deep eruptive diorite. The magnetite in its rocks causes compass malfunctions, making navigation in its vicinity difficult when visibility is poor. The volcanic Island of Brusnik The islet of Brusnik lies 11 miles west of Komiža. In 1951, it was protected as a geological monument of nature. Brusnik’s an island that rises high above sea level. The middle of the island boasts a gorge with a sea-filled depression, which Komiža’s fishermen have turned to their advantage − by using larger pebbles, they’ve made smaller sea-filled pools for the lobsters they catch. The Green Cave Less than a kilometre away from the coast, the islet of Ravnik boasts the Green Cave. Because it has two large openings, it can display no blue light effect like the Blue Cave does. What makes the Green Cave attractive is the opening in the centre of its high dome through which sunlight penetrates illuminating the seabed like a beam of light in the darkness of the cave.

Stiniva Cove Stiniva Cove on the southern side of Vis was voted the most beautiful beach in Europe in 2016. This wondrous cove ends in a small area embraced by semi-circular high cliffs with a narrow door to the open sea and a spacious beach. Layers of sedimentary slabs line one above the other on all sides of the beach, as if following the shape of what was possibly a huge cave that had collapsed. The town of Vis The town of Vis is the successor of the ancient polis of Issa, a city-state built by the Dorians, Greek colonists from Syracuse. It was from Issa that urban civilisation spread on the east coast of the Adriatic. Issa was erected on the slopes of the southern coast of the spacious north-eastern bay of the Island of Vis. The many archaeological finds, exhibited today in the archaeological museums of Vis and Split, testify to the high level of development of civilisation and culture in this Adriatic polis, whose wealth came primarily from wine production and wine trade. The town of Komiža Komiža’s located in the midst of volcanic tectonic activity. Its beaches with their dark green rocks and volcanic bombs offer a unique experience and are a challenge for the geological interpretation of Komiža’s landscape. Besides its geological peculiarity, Komiža is, historically speaking, Croatia’s most important fishing town. Komiža’s historic town centre is a unique example of fishing village architecture. All the houses by the sea were small family-run fish salting manufactories. Curiously, Komiža’s fishermen that migrated to the USA − to California to be precise − contributed to the city of San Pedro developing into the world’s capital of fishing. Diomedes’s Route The Vis archipelago lies on what is called Diomedes’s Route, named after the Trojan hero Diomedes who, after the fall of Troy, sought and found a new home on the Italian peninsula of Gargano. Diomedes’s Route is the oldest trans-Adriatic route connecting the Gargano Peninsula in Italy with the Hyllus Peninsula (also called Punta Planka or Diomedes’s Cape) near Rogoznica in Croatia via Palagruža, Biševo and Komiža.

The Benedictine Route Known as the Benedictine Route, this was a route travelled by Benedictine monks, followers of St. Benedict of Nursia. It was along this route that they founded their monasteries (Vieste in Italy, and Palagruža, Biševo, the Island of Svetac, Komiža and Split in Croatia), thanks to which Christianity spread from the west to the east coast of the Adriatic. According to local lore, Pope Alexander III met with Komiža’s fishermen on the Island of Palagruža. A bird route This is also a bird route travelled by migratory birds during their seasonal migrations. This is why there exists a colony of Eleonora’s falcons (Falco eleonorae), a very rare species native to the Mediterranean whose habitat with the highest population density in the world is on the islands of Svetac and Biševo. Falkuša, the oldest type of fishing boat in the Mediterranean In 1997, the Comeza-Lisboa falkuša gajeta fishing boat was restored in Komiža to be presented at EXPO ’98, the 1998 world’s fair in Lisbon. Interpreting and understanding culturally and anthropologically this maritime region is inconceivable without first interpreting and understanding this historic ship that facilitated life on this outlying front of the Adriatic Sea. Rating highly the art of building this unique type of fishing boat, including the fishing tradition associated with the world’s oldest regatta − i.e., the one from Komiža to Palagruža − as evidenced by a document from 1593, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia put the falkuša gajeta fishing boat on the list of Croatia’s intangible cultural heritage. The natural and cultural heritage of the Vis archipelago globally validated That the Vis archipelago was declared a geopark should be taken as one of the most important milestones in the recent history of the Island of Vis, and as a chance to globally validate the cultural and natural heritage of this outlying archipelago of the Adriatic Sea. Such a validation of Vis and its natural and cultural heritage could help establish a model of sustainable development, restore vitality, stop the island’s population decline and give young people  hope for the future.

ZANOSNI MIRISI HRVATSKE THE SWEET SCENTS OF CROATIA Piše/By _ Nada Mirković Fotografije/Photos _ Ivo Pervan

U Hrvatskoj raste čak 5500 različitih biljaka, a s obzirom na malu površinu države, naša je flora iznimno bogata. Hrvatska jadranska obala − među stijenjem gdje raste divlje autohtono bilje i nije pošumljena crnogoricom − miriši oporo ali zanosno, nezaboravno... As many as 5500 different plants grow in Croatia. Given the size of the country, which is small, Croatia’s plant world is extremely rich. Croatia’s Adriatic coast − that is, its parts without a coniferous forest cover where native wild plants grow amidst rocks − is perfumed with a pungent yet seductive, unforgettable scent.

anosni miris makije hrvatske jadranske obale najviše potječe od smilja i toliko je intenzivan da ga uspoređuju s jakim začinom curryjem. Osjetit će ga svatko tko krene u šetnju kršem po našim otocima, ali i u zaleđu, po neutabanim stazama, gdje nema turista, gdje se čuju samo cvrčci. Smilje je sveprisutno u priobalju − kantautor i pjesnik Arsen Dedić, porijeklom Šibenčanin, posvetio mu je pjesmu jer je u njem moja mladost sadržana. Arsen smilje osjeća kao sukus našeg jadranskog zaleđa, jer ono je i cvit i nije.

Pjeva mu zaneseno: Nema tužnih dana, sve se ružno briše kada mi u sobi smilje zamiriše. Sve je više snova, a sve manje zbilje kada mi u sobi zamiriše smilje... Iako se ta toliko naša biljka na latinskome i francuskome naziva talijanskom (Helichrysum italicum, l’immortelle d’Italie), od mnogih vrsta smilja upravo se dalmatinsko i korzikansko smatra najkvalitetnijim za najrazličitije kozmetičke i fitomedicinske pripravke. Hrvatska i talijanska flora u velikoj se mjeri preklapaju. U Hrvatskoj raste čak

5500 različitih biljaka, a s obzirom na malu površinu države, naša je flora iznimno bogata. Usporedimo li je s puno većim zemljama shvatit ćemo koliko je veliko biljno bogatstvo naših prostora: u Francuskoj raste 4630, a u Njemačkoj 3203 različite biljke. Naročito su vrijedne mnoge hrvatske samonikle, endemične i zaštićene biljke kao što su lijepa jadranska perunika (Iris pseudopallida), velebitska degenija (Degenia velebitica), dalmatinska iglica (Geranium dalmaticum), nekoliko vrsta istarskih zvončića

No endemičnog je bilja malo, a u svibnju čitav naš krš oživi s milijunima žutih cvjetova brnistre (Spartium junceum), malim suncima, samozatajnim, ali mirisnim cvjetovima smilja. Treba ih brati u zoru, dok su puni rose i nude kvalitetno eterično ulje sve popularnije u anti-age kozmetici. Upravo je zato i u Hrvatskoj, po uzoru na Francusku, sve više ekološkog uzgoja smilja u Istri, Dalmaciji i Dalmatinskoj zagori. No sustavni uzgoj aromatičnog bilja

02

44 _ CROATIA AIRLINES 2/2020

započeo je kod nas davno s ružmarinom (Rosmarinus officinalis), začinskom i ljekovitom autohtonom mediteranskom biljkom. U Dalmaciji se tradicija branja ružmarina kao ljekovite biljke spominje u jednom zapisu ljekarnika iz 1462. godine. Ružmarin se uzgajao na Hvaru, Visu i Šolti, a danas se uzgaja i prerađuje i u Istri i Primorju. Ljepota ljubičastih cvjetova lavande, koji su upravo oživjeli hvarska polja, ipak je nenadmašna. Lavandu osjećamo kao dio hrvatskog identiteta, po njoj mirišu naši primorski hoteli i domovi, iako su je još Rimljani cijenili kao sukus cijelog Mediterana zbog njezinih aromatičnih, terapijskih svojstava i nosili je sa sobom i sadili čak do Britanije. Kod nas lavanda raste i kao samonikla biljka u priobalju, no krajem dvadesetih godina prošlog stoljeća kultivirana polja lavande pretvorila su je − u hvarski izvozni proizvod. Šezdesetih godina Hvar je bio osmi u svijetu po uzgoju lavande. Čitav Hvar još i danas, kad se proizvodnja uvelike smanjila, osobito nakon što su polja opustošili veliki požari krajem devedesetih, miriše na hvarsku levandu. Zapravo je riječ o lavandinu (Lavandula x hybrida), križancu širokolisne lavande Lavandula latifolia) i prave lavande


03

(Lavandula angustifolia) kojoj je stanište u južnoj Francuskoj, u brdima Provanse. Lavandin je jačeg antibakterijskog i protugljivičnog učinka od blaže, opuštajuće lavande. No ostavimo po strani snagu eteričnog ulja toga ljubičastog cvijeta koju je najbolje iskušati na Festivalu lavande početkom ljeta na Hvaru. Usredotočimo se na njegovu čistu ljepotu. Polja levande, kako je zovu Hvarani, koja izgledaju gotovo kao samonikla, a ne zasađena prije gotovo stotinu godina, onako sljubljena s krajolikom krša i drevnim suhozidom oko Velog i Malog Grablja, toliko su lijepa da je berba postala turistička atrakcija koja privlači čak i turiste koji dolaze iz dalekih zemalja te drugih kultura poput japanske koja bilju pripisuje dublja značenja od zapadnjačkih. 

T

he aromatic scent of the undergrowth sprouting along Croatia’s Adriatic coastline is mostly given off by immortelle. It’s also commonly referred to as the curry plant because it has a strong smell reminiscent of the smell of curry. You’ll notice it when you go for a walk in the karst landscape of Croatia’s islands and hinterland, down untrodden paths without any tourists around, where only crickets sing. Immortelle’s found along

the entire coastline − the Šibenik-born poet and singer-songwriter, Arsen Dedić, dedicated a poem to immortelle because, in it, my youth is held. Arsen perceives immortelle as the very essence of Croatia’s Adriatic hinterland because it’s both a flower and not one. Captivated by it, Arsen writes: No sad days, all ugliness is erased when the scent of immortelle fills my room. Dreams multiply, reality’s reduced when the scent of immortelle fills my room... Although this so very Croatian plant is referred to as Italian in Latin (Helichrysum italicum) and French (l’immortelle d’Italie), of the many varieties of immortelle, the ones growing in Dalmatia and Corsica are considered to be of the highest quality by the beauty and herbal product industries. The plants growing in Croatia overlap to a great extent with the ones growing in Italy. As many as 5500 different plants grow in Croatia. Given the size of the country, which is small, Croatia’s plant world is extremely rich. This richness becomes all the more evident when compared with much bigger countries. France, for example, boasts 4630 different types of plants, and Germany 3203. Particularly valuable are Croatia’s many native, wild and protected plants, such as the beautiful Adriatic iris

(Iris pseudopallida), Velebit’s degenia (Degenia velebitica), the Dalmatian cranesbill (Geranium dalmaticum), several species of Istrian bellflowers (Campanula istriaca) and many others. Although native plants don’t grow in abundance, in May the whole of Croatia’s karst landscape springs to life with millions of yellow Spanish broom (Spartium junceum) flowers and tiny, sun-like and fragrant yet shy immortelle flowers. Packed with quality essential oil increasingly popular in antiaging cosmetics, immortelle flowers should be picked at dawn while they’re full of dew. This is why − following in the footsteps of France − the organic farming of immortelle has been growing in Istria, Dalmatia and the Dalmatian hinterland. Aromatic herbs have been cultivated in Croatia systematically for ages. It started with rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), an aromatic and medicinal herb native to the Mediterranean basin. In Dalmatia, the tradition of picking rosemary as a medicinal plant dates back to at least 1462 when, records show, it was first mentioned by an herbalist. Rosemary used to be grown only on the islands of Hvar, Vis and Šolta, although today it’s also cultivated and processed in Istria and the northern Adriatic region.

The beauty of lavender’s purple flowers, which have revived the fields of Hvar, is matchless. Lavender was revered already by the Romans as the very essence of the entire Mediterranean because of its aromatic and therapeutic properties, and they took and planted it as far as Britain. Regardless of the Romans, lavender has become part of Croatian identity, with Croatia’s coastal hotels and homes perfumed with it. Lavender’s also a wild plant growing along Croatia’s coastal regions. But in the late

1920s, lavender cultivated in the fields of Hvar became Hvar’s export product, and by the 1960s Hvar became the eighth biggest lavender producer in the world. Although production has declined significantly, especially after the fields were devastated by huge wildfires in the late 1990s, the whole of the Island of Hvar still smells of lavender. It’s actually a variety of lavender commonly called lavandin (Lavandula x hybrida), a crossbreed of broad-leaved lavender (Lavandula latifolia) and true

lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) native to southern France, the hills of Provence to be exact. Lavandin oil has stronger antibacterial and antifungal properties than its milder and more calming lavender oil relative. But let’s set aside the powerful properties of their essential oils, which the Island of Hvar dedicates a festival to at the beginning of each summer. Let’s focus on the pure beauty of this purple flower. Blended in perfectly with the surrounding karst landscape and ancient dry stone walls embracing the villages of Velo Grablje and Malo Grablje, Hvar’s fields of lavender − which look as though they’ve been growing wildly, as though they weren’t planted nearly a hundred years ago − are so stunning that picking them has become a tourist attraction that draws tourists even from afar, such as the Japanese whose culture attributes a far deeper meaning to plants than the western  cultures do.

d makadamskih putova savršenih za brdski biciklizam do asfaltiranih cesta za obiteljske izlete, u Hrvatskoj ćete pronaći raznolike savršene staze za svačiji ukus, neovisno o tome jeste li rekreativac ili profesionalni sportaš. Opcije su beskrajne, a toliko primamljive: od biciklistički najpopularnijeg poluotoka Hrvatske − Istre, preko šumovitih, miomirisnih otoka Kvarnera i gorskih prostora Gorskog kotara, povijesnih cesta regije Lika − Karlovac, preko najviših prijevoja i atraktivnih planina dinarskoga krša do dramatično lijepe dalmatinske obale s otocima ili od žitne ravnice Slavonije kroz

zelene riječne doline, preko kultiviranih brežuljaka i uz mnoštvo dvoraca, kurija i crkava središnje Hrvatske do urbane biciklističke oaze Zagreba. Pođite stazama koje vas vode od Jadranskoga mora do planinskih vrhova. Više od 400 različitih staza, poput onih u Zagrebu, Ogulinu, Splitu i Omišu, oduševit će početnike, a iskusni planinari užitak će pronaći na Velebitu, Učki, Dinari ili Mosoru. Ako ste strastveni penjač, u Nacionalnom parku Paklenica čeka vas Anića kuk, masivna stijena visoka 350 metara koja će vam pružiti nezaboravni doživljaj. Pet najboljih mjesta za planinarenje u

Hrvatskoj nalazi se na Učki, u nacionalnim parkovima Risnjak, Sjeverni Velebit i Paklenica te na planini Biokovo. Neka od njih zimi su prekrivena snijegom, ali se mogu u cijelosti obići između kasnog proljeća i rane jeseni. Dođite i osjetite duh hrvatskih planina. Hrvatske planine nigdje ne premašuju visinu od 2000 metara, ali su po raznolikosti pejzaža iznimno zanimljive. Zbog male visine većina je vrhova planinarski razmjerno lako dostupna, što hrvatske planine čini vrlo pogodnim, praktički idealnim za planinarenje. Ljepoti hrvatskih planina dodatno pridonosi činjenica da su vrhovi po svojim obilježjima

Privlačnost Hrvatske vodećim svjetskim nautičkim odredištima nije upitna, a koji će element široke lepeze ponude za nautičare pristajati vašem životnom stilu, ovisi o vama. Tajna popularnosti hrvatske obale upravo je u tome što na njoj, osim u prirodnim ljepotama, možete uživati u velikoj raznovrsnosti sadržaja kojima je zajednički nazivnik vaše zadovoljstvo.

Od srca vam želimo da iz osobnog iskustva razotkrijete nautičku Hrvatsku i odaberete djelić koji je najbliži vašem srcu. Prvi i najvidljiviji razlog dolaska u Hrvatsku njezine su prirodne ljepote. Hrvatska obala dom je za točno 1244 otoka, otočića i hridi, ali ono što ih čini posebnima nije njihov broj, nego činjenica da formiraju mnogobrojne uvale

i uvalice, plaže, špilje i klifove, a mjesta nedirnute prirodne ljepote preklapaju se sa šarmantnim primorskim gradićima. Taj jedinstveni arhipelag, koji se proteže na manje od 250 nautičkih milja, uživa i blagu mediteransku klimu, plovidbu čini zabavnom i ugodnom. Na hrvatskoj se obali smjestilo čak pet hrvatskih nacionalnih parkova, od čega su tri tipično morska (Brijuni, Kornati i Mljet), jedan poglavito planinski (Paklenica), a jedan morsko-riječni (Krka). Ako želite dodirnuti njihovu ljepotu, dovoljno je usmjeriti pramac u željenu smjeru. Ovdje su nabrojeni samo najvažniji as-

Odabira ima gotovo bezbroj, od skrovitih uvala do živih gradova često vas dijeli samo nekoliko nautičkih milja, a različiti aspekti uživanja stalno su vam nadohvat ruke. Ono što im je zajedničko njihova je kvaliteta, koja se zrcali u kvaliteti vašeg  boravka u Hrvatskoj.

Or across Slavonia’s golden plains of wheat through central Croatia’s green river valleys or farmed hills spotted with castles, manors and churches to Zagreb’s urban cycling paradise. Follow the paths and roads that lead you from the Adriatic Sea to mountain peaks. If you’re a novice at mountaineering, you’ll be delighted by more than 400 different trails, such as those in Zagreb, Ogulin, Split and Omiš, and if you’re an experienced mountaineer, you’ll be excited about the mountains of Velebit, Učka, Dinara or Mosor. If you’re a passionate climber, try Anića Kuk − a massive 350-metre

high rock wall in Paklenica National Park − which is sure to provide an unforgettable experience. Učka Mountain, Risnjak, Northern Velebit and Paklenica national parks, and Biokovo Mountain boast the five best places for hiking and mountaineering in Croatia. Some are covered in snow in winter, but all can be hiked between late spring and early autumn. Come and feel the spirit of Croatia’s mountains. Croatia’s mountains do not exceed altitudes of 2000 metres, but are extremely fascinating in terms of landscape diversity. Because they aren’t that high, most mountain peaks are relatively easily accessible, which makes

While most peaks in the Pannonian part of Croatia are covered in forest, almost all major peaks in the Dinaric part of Croatia are bare and make good lookouts. Croatia’s lure lies in the fact that it’s one of the world’s leading sailing and nautical tourism destinations, there’s no question about it. There’s a whole range of sailing and boating offers to choose from catering for all lifestyles, it only depends on what you’re into. The secret of the popularity of

Stretched along less than 250 nautical miles, Croatia’s unique archipelago enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, which makes sailing fun and enjoyable. There’re as many as five national parks on Croatia’s coast, three of which feature the sea (Brijuni, Kornati and Mljet national parks), one features mountains (Paklenica National Park), and one the sea and a river

ARTISTIC FASHION DESIGN Piše/By _ Dubravka Prpić Znaor Fotografije/Photos _ Franjo Matković

Marija Kulušić prisutna je na strani artističkoga, promišljenog odjevnog dizajna koji ignorira brzo izmjenjivanje trendova te je dio takozvane slow fashion scene. Giving it a lot of thought, Marija Kulušić approaches fashion design artistically. This makes her design ignore the rapid change of trends and is part of what is called the slow fashion scene. 62 _ CROATIA AIRLINES 2/2020

− Moj je dizajn namijenjen svakome tko se pronalazi u njemu te tko ne slijedi slijepo trendove i cijeni odjevne predmete koji će jednako dobro funkcionirati i za pet godina − ističe Marija, koja je 2018. godine osvojila hrvatsku prestižnu nagradu modnog magazina Elle za najboljeg mladog dizajnera. Razvoj dizajna u njezinu ateljeu odvija se sporo, analitički, ovisno o ideji koja je okupira i oko koje želi izgraditi kolekciju. Tijekom procesa proučava, informira se te istovremeno uči i spoznaje što konkretno želi prikazati kolekcijom. − Puno vremena posvećujem razradi te filtriranju skica, a na koncu je moguća i promjena tijekom izrade odjevnih predmeta. Do samog kraja izrade kolekcije ništa nije definitivno − tumači Marija. Ovo, takozvano sporo područje mode i odijevanja podrazumijeva i materijale koje krase tihi luksuz, kvaliteta i prirodan karakter. − Preferiram prirodne materijale u kojima se i sama najbolje osjećam, a to su svila,

vuna i pamuk. Tekstil mi je od velike važnosti i puno vremena posvećujem odabiru tekstila kod izrade kolekcije − otkriva autorica. Nerijetko nakon modeliranja, krojenja i oblikovanja kolekcije svaku od kreacija završava ručno. − Često se posvećujem ručnom dovršavanju i izradi uzoraka na tekstilu, također prirodnim bojilima, što rezultira nepredvidivim rezultatima. Odjevne predmete uvijek dovršavam ručno te pritom koristim ručne metode nabiranja, bojenja i plisiranja koji iziskuju više vremena jer je riječ o tehnikama koje su karakteristične za visoku modu − objašnjava dizajnerica. Svaku kolekciju, naime, gleda kao novu cjelinu i novi početak. Kolorit je iznimno prirodan, nenametljiv, što je posljedica prirodnog bojenja tkanina biljnim pigmentima. U fokusu su decentne bež varijante, a onda i topla čokolada te sve one između i okolo, poput tona šampanjca i vanilije. S obzirom na to da su tekstili mekani i prirodni, ove nijanse donose sklad između teksture i boje.

Njezin je talent postao očit ubrzo nakon završetka studija modnog dizajna u Zagrebu. − Krenula sam ozbiljnije pri kraju svog obrazovanja na Tekstilno-tehnološkom fakultetu, pobijedivši na natječaju za mlade dizajnere te sam dobila priliku predstaviti se na tjednu mode nekoliko sezona, a svojom odlukom trenutno radim sama i ne izlažem na tjednima mode − otkriva Marija. Do sada je imala niz uspješnih predstavljanja, u Maastrichtu na festivalu Fashionclash, u Skopju kroz projekt United Fashion, a uskoro je očekuje boravak u Francuskoj povodom osvojene nagrade OpenMyMed, koja pomaže dizajnerima u razvijanju brenda, a nastala je pod pokroviteljstvom Chanela i zaklade LVMH − Maison Mode Méditerranée. − Ova posljednja nagrada temelji se na cjelokupnom radu dizajnera koji sam morala poslati u prijavi, a da sam jedan od pobjednika, saznala sam u veljači ove godine − otkrila je dizajnerica. Njezin specifičan pristup odijevanju svrstava je među autore koji uspješno podržavaju sferu umjetničkog oblikovanja prêt-à-porter odjeće. 

− My creations are intended for all those who find themselves in the designs, who don’t follow trends blindly and who appreciate pieces of clothing that’ll be wearable in five years as well − says Marija, who won the 2018 Elle Style Award for best young designer in Croatia. She works on her designs in her fashion studio slowly and analytically, depending on the idea which she’s preoccupied with and which she wants to build a collection around. During the process, she does research, gets informed about, studies and immerses herself in what she would specifically like to present in a collection. − I dedicate a lot of time to the development and filtering of sketches, although in the end, changes are possible during the production process. Until the collection is finalised, nothing’s definite − Marija explains. What is called slow ​​ fashion implies using materials featuring discreet luxury, quality and a natural character. − I prefer natural materials that I myself feel best in, and these are silk, wool and cotton. The choice of textiles is of great

importance to me, and I dedicate a lot of time to choosing them when creating a collection − Marija reveals. After she’s tailored and modelled her designs, and after she’s shaped her collection, she often finishes her creations by hand. − I often finish my designs by hand and pattern textiles using natural fabric dyes, so the results I get are often unpredictable. I do the folds and pleats by hand, and I dye the fabrics manually. This takes more time considering that these are techniques typical of high fashion − the designer explains. In other words, she sees each collection as a new entity and a new beginning. The colours she uses are very natural and unobtrusive, which is the result of her dyeing fabrics with plant pigments. She seems to centre on discreet beiges, then warm chocolate browns and similar colours, such as champagne and vanilla. Since the fabrics she uses are soft and natural, harmony’s created between texture and colour. She showed a talent for design soon after graduating in fashion design in Zagreb. − I got more serious about designing near the end of my studies at the Faculty of Textile Technology. I won a competition for young designers, so I was given the opportunity to present my work at fashion week shows during the course of a few seasons. It was my decision to work alone and not to present my designs at fashion weeks − reveals Marija. She’s had a number of successful presentations so far, such as at the Fashionclash festival in Maastricht and at the United Fashion project in Skopje. She’s about to travel to and stay in France given that she’s won the OpenMyMed Prize, which helps designers develop their brand through the Maison Mode Méditerranée association based in Marseille and partnered by Chanel and LMVH. − I won this last prize based on all of my work so far as a designer which I had to send in with the application. I found out that I was one of the winners in February this year − the designer reveals. Her specific approach to design ranks her amongst designers who’ve been successful at designing prêt-à-porter fashion artistically. 

cama Gornjega grada susretat ćete se s likovima po kojima je Zagreb poznat − pjevačima starogradskih pjesama, boemima, šestinskim kumicama... Baš kao u starim filmovima i na sentimentalnim fotografijama!

Od lipnja do rujna Art park na Ribnjaku ugošćuje brojne umjetnike koji, ostavljajući svoj trag, čine ovo mjesto umjetničkom galerijom na otvorenome.

Art park Zagreb, lipanj − rujan Prekrasan park u centru Zagreba pretvoren je u mjesto svih vrsta umjetnosti, ležernih ljetnih druženja i dobre atmosfere.

Cest is d’Best, kolovoz Živahan, zabavan i energičan − Cest is d’Best najpopularniji je međunarodni ulični festival u Hrvatskoj za čijeg trajanja ulice Zagreba ožive i budu preplavljene stotinama izvođača, glumaca, komičara, žonglera, klaunova, glazbenika, plesača i još puno toga.

OKOLO // around, kolovoz Projekt posvećen umjetničkom istraživanju Zagreba, OKOLO, malim intervencijama u tkivo grada oživjet će niz javnih gradskih prostora i pretvoriti ih u mjesta gdje se umjetnost spontano dotiče svakodnevice grada (i svakoga od nas). Neke će vas intervencije pozivati na interakciju i korištenje, neke upućivati na novu, ljepšu stvarnost, dok će neke donijeti i dobru dozu humora, ponekad zaboravljenog u užurbanoj svakodnevici.

Lako je oduševiti se starom jezgrom Zagreba, uživati u šetnjama šarmantnim Gornjim gradom ili živahnim Donjim gradom. No da bi se upoznala sva lica grada, treba se zaputiti dalje, preko rubova bliskoga i poznatoga. A kad Zagreb rasprostre svoj zeleni tepih, od samog središta pa sve do skrivenih kutaka šire

Zagreb nudi mnoštvo mogućnosti za pasivno ili aktivno uživanje na svježem zraku. Zapravo, uopće i ne morate napustiti područje grada da biste se prepustili sportovima i aktivnostima na otvorenome kao što su planinarenje, ribolov, golf ili biciklizam. Ipak, pogreška je ne zaviriti u okolicu Zagreba, njegovo najljepše dvorište. Zagrebačkoj županiji tepamo da je zeleni prsten grada jer ga okružuje obiljem prirodnih ljepota i malim mjestima idealnima za brz i siguran bijeg od vreve. Boravak u čistoj prirodi s prekrasnim vidicima i impresivnom florom i faunom izletnicima vraća energiju i širi vidike. Krajolik u rasponu od šumovitoga gorja do riječnih dolina i močvara premrežen je biciklističkim, pješačkim i planinarskim stazama. Idilični zaseoci i kuće za odmor tu su da pokažu pravo značenje pojma ladanje. Zagreb doista ima sreće živjeti u okruženju kakvo samo poželjeti može, u sigurnoj i mirnoj zelenoj oazi koja mu puni baterije.

ners of its wider surroundings − its roads just keep on opening up. It’s obvious at first glance that there’s no shortage of greenery in Zagreb. Already in the very heart of the city, street life is interlaced with elegant parks and squares, ideal for relaxation. Just around the corner, there’s Tuškanac Forest Park providing plenty of shade and the magnificent Maksimir Park. Located between Mount Medvednica and the Sava River, Zagreb offers a range of options for your passive or active enjoyment of the outdoors. In fact, you don’t even have to leave the city area to indulge in outdoor activities and sports, such as hiking, fishing, golf or cycling. However, it would be wrong not to peek into the surroundings of Zagreb, its most beautiful courtyard. Zagreb County is referred to by the locals as the city’s green ring because Zagreb’s surrounded by the county’s many natural attractions, and small places and townlets ideal for short getaways and breaks where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Boasting stunning views, and an impressive animal and plant life, the great outdoors renews your energy and expands your horizons. The surrounding landscape − ranging from wooded mountains to river valleys and swamps − is interspersed with bike and hiking trails, and mountain tracks. Idyllic hamlets and holiday homes are sure to show you the true meaning of staying in the countryside. Zagreb’s truly lucky − it couldn’t wish for a nicer landscape to ring it, for a safer and more peaceful green patch of paradise to recharge its batteries.

akon stabilizacije epidemiološke situacije u Republici Hrvatskoj sredinom svibnja u Zračnoj luci Split ponovno je uspostavljen redoviti domaći promet linijama Croatia Airlinesa za Zagreb, dok je redoviti međunarodni promet obnovljen koncem svibnja linijama za Frankfurt. Daljnjim poboljšanjem epidemiološke situacije i postupnim smanjenjem ograničenja kretanja putnika između država Europske unije tijekom lipnja bilježi se rast međunarodnog zračnog prometa koji ostvaruje desetak avioprijevoznika na dvadesetak destinacija.

O

nce the epidemiological situation in the Republic of Croatia stabilised in mid-May, Split Airport started handling scheduled domestic air traffic operated by Croatia Airlines from and to Zagreb, while scheduled international air traffic was resumed at the end of May from and to Frankfurt. The further improvement of the epidemiological situation and the gradual lifting of restrictions imposed on the movement of passengers between the countries of the European Union during June resulted in an increase in international air traffic operated by some ten airlines flying to some twenty destinations. As far as markets are concerned, the most important one is Germany (seven destinations), which is followed by Scandinavia,

Switzerland, Poland, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Italy. Given the current situation and the dynamics of the market, the amount of air traffic expected can be predicted with certainty only two weeks in advance. Split Airport has been in contact with key service users throughout the epidemic, including its peak. Sharing information on the very favourable epidemiological situation in the Republic of Croatia, implementing all epidemiological measures introduced by both national and European regulators, and introducing stimulating commercial measures to encourage the operation of flights has led to a very positive reaction which has already given visible results.

Luksemburg, Nizozemska, Velika Britanija i Italija. S obzirom na poznate okolnosti i vrlo dinamičnu situaciju na tržištu, očekivani promet moguće je sa sigurnošću predvidjeti samo za dva tjedna unaprijed. Zračna luka Split cijelo je vrijeme, pa i tijekom vrhunca pandemije, bila u kontaktu s ključnim korisnicima usluga. Dijeljenje informacija o jako povoljnoj epidemiološkoj situaciji u Republici Hrvatskoj, provođenju svih epidemioloških mjera koje propisuju nacionalni i europski regulatori i uvođenju stimulativnih komercijalnih mjera u svrhu poticanja nastavka letenja dovelo je do vrlo pozitivne reakcije s već vidljivim rezultatima.

NAŠI ZAPOSLENICI OUR EMPLOYEES

Naši putnici za nas su uvijek bili i ostat će prioritet! Our passengers have always been and remain a priority for us! Fotografije/Photos _ Šime Lugarov

Putnici su za nas uvijek na prvome mjestu, a osobito u ovo zahtjevno vrijeme koronavirusa, kad im nastojimo pružiti i dodatnu brigu i pažnju. Pomoć koju im pružamo odnosi se na različite oblike naših poslova i različite dijelove naše kompanije. Pritom poštujemo sve procedure kako bismo ih maksimalno zaštitili, o čemu svjedoče naši zaposlenici. Passengers always come first with us, particularly in today’s challenging times caused by the coronavirus pandemic, when we look to provide our passengers with extra care and attention. The help we provide to our passengers relates to different aspects of our business operations and different parts of our company. In doing so, we respect all procedures, and this with a view to protecting our passengers as much as possible, as witnessed below by our employees.

ROBERT KRULJAC Voditelj zemaljskih usluga i voditelj Kriznog stožera Ground Handling Manager and Crisis Manager U avioindustriji, u svakom trenutku, trebamo biti spremni na krize. No ipak, o situaciji poput ove s koronavirusom, nismo mogli ni sanjati. Ova kriza za sve nas predstavlja veliki ispit znanja, a mi se doista trudimo sve naše zadatke obaviti s najvišim ocjenama. S jednakom brigom prema našim putnicima, zaposlenicima i ostalim ciljnim skupinama donosimo potrebne odluke, spremno dočekujući svaki novi dan. Sretni smo što smo od 11. svibnja, u sklopu ublažavanja zaštitnih mjera u Republici Hrvatskoj, počeli s djelomičnom obnovom prometa unutar Hrvatske i uveli dva dnevna leta na liniji Zagreb − Dubrovnik i Zagreb − Split. Također od 25. svibnja nastavili smo i s redovitim međunarodnim letovima na liniji Zagreb − Amsterdam te smo uveli drugi let na liniji Zagreb − Frankfurt. Tijekom lipnja povećali smo broj međunarodnih letova iz Zagreba u europska odredišta, sukladno epidemiološkoj situaciji i uvjetima putovanja unutar Europe. U srpnju također planiramo dodatno proširiti mrežu naših letova prema Europi te početi povezivati Zagreb i Brač te Osijek sa Splitom i Dubrovnikom. Svim snagama nastojimo pridonijeti stabilizaciji turističkih potencijala naše zemlje. In the aviation industry, we must be prepared for crises at all times. Yet, never in our wildest dreams could we have come up with a situation such as this one. This crisis has put our knowledge to the test, and we always give all our tasks our best shot. Ready for everything every single day, we make the necessary decisions with equal care for our passengers, employees and other target groups. We’re happy that, as part of the mitigation of public health measures adopted in the Republic of Croatia, on 11th May we started reintroducing flights within Croatia and operating two daily flights on the Zagreb−Dubrovnik and Zagreb−Split routes. On 25th May,

94 _ CROATIA AIRLINES 2/2020

we also reintroduced our flights to Amsterdam and introduced a second daily flight on the Zagreb−Frankfurt route. During June, we increased the number of international flights from Zagreb to European destinations in line with the current epidemiological situation and travel restrictions within Europe. In July, we’re also planning to further expand the network of our flights to Europe, and start connecting Zagreb with Brač, and Osijek with Split and Dubrovnik. We’re doing our best to contribute to the stabilisation of Croatia’s potential for tourism.


PETRA NUELATI Djelatnica Kontakt centra A Contact Centre employee Naše telefonske linije ovih su dana doslovno preopterećene. Ipak, svim našim putnicima nastojimo izaći ususret i ponuditi im odgovore na njihova pitanja vezana uz letove te im osigurati sve potrebne informacije. Otvorili smo i dodatne telefonske linije i angažirali dodatno osoblje, kako bismo na vrijeme odgovorili našim dragim putnicima u ovom vrlo zahtjevnom razdoblju. Our telephones literally haven’t stopped ringing. Nevertheless, we strive to meet the needs of all our passengers, offer them answers to their questions concerning their flights and provide them with all the necessary information. We’ve also had additional phone lines installed and hired additional staff to be able to respond in time to our dear passengers in these challenging times.

TOMISLAV DOLOVSKI Kapetan / A captain Letenje doista stvara osjećaj slobode. Otvara nove prostore i horizonte. No danas smo toga svjesni na jedan potpuno drugačiji način. Danas s još više entuzijazma letimo i povezujemo Hrvatsku s ostatkom svijeta. Poseban izazov bili su nam humanitarni letovi u kojima smo kao nacionalni avioprijevoznik rado sudjelovali. Bila je to najvažnija utakmica 21. stoljeća, utakmica koju svi zajedno moramo dobiti! Podsjetio bih kako je u ovom izuzetno zahtjevnom razdoblju epidemiološke krize naša kompanija u smanjenom opsegu nastavila s radom kako bi hrvatskim državljanima omogućila povratak u domovinu, a stranim državljanima vezu s njihovim zemljama. Tako smo na našim letovima, u doba najveće krize, prevezli više od 23.000 putnika. Nadam se da dijelimo zajednički ponos i zadovoljstvo što smo i na taj način opravdali svoju ulogu nacionalnog avioprijevoznika i pridonijeli ublažavanju teških posljedica uzrokovanih pandemijom koronavirusa. Flying really does give you a sense of freedom. It opens up new expanses and horizons. Yet, today, we’re aware of this in a completely different way. Today, we fly and connect Croatia with the rest of the world with even greater enthusiasm. Crisis-related flights have been a special challenge, which we, as Croatia’s flag carrier airline, have gladly participated in. It was the most important game of the 21st century, a game we all must win together! I’d like to remind you all that, in these extremely challenging times of the epidemic, our company has continued to operate a reduced number of flights to provide Croatian citizens with a way to come home, and foreign citizens with a way to go home. As a result, during the peak of the crisis, we flew more than 23,000 passengers. I hope that we share in the pride and satisfaction with us having justified our role as Croatia’s flag carrier airline and with us having contributed to mitigating the severe consequences caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

JELENA PECIKOZIĆ Domaćica zrakoplova A flight attendant Naša kompanija prati i implementira sve preporuke Europske agencije za sigurnost zračnog prometa (EASA), koje uključuju primjenu zaštitne opreme za djelatnike, putnike, dezinfekciju zrakoplova i socijalnu distancu u kabini zrakoplova. Također od svibnja ove godine na svim našim letovima obavezno je korištenje zaštitnih maski ili pokrivala za lice. Nama je neobično imati manje letova i putnika, no odgovornim ponašanjem svih nas, vjerujemo da ćemo vrlo brzo opet raširiti krila Croatia Airlinesa. Our company’s been monitoring and implementing all the recommendations made by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), including the use of protective face masks or face covers by both our employees and passengers − which is mandatory on all our flights as of May this year − aircraft disinfection and social distancing measures in the cabin. Having fewer flights and passengers is very unusual for us, but if we all behave responsibly, we believe that we’ll soon spread the wings of Croatia Airlines again.

VJEKOSLAV PINJUŠIĆ Aviomehaničar An aeromechanic U Croatia Airlinesu na prvom je mjestu sigurnost u svim dijelovima poslovanja i sa sigurnošću nema kompromisa. Dezinfekcija, provjera filtera, dodatne mjere zaštite za naše putnike i zaposlenike danas su aktivnosti koje s mnogo odgovornosti svakodnevno obavljamo. Štitimo tako naše i zdravlje naših putnika, stavljajući javnozdravstveni interes na prvo mjesto. At Croatia Airlines, safety comes first in all parts of our business operations. There’s no compromise with safety. Disinfection, filter checks, implementing additional protective measures for our passengers and employees are tasks that we’ve been performing very responsibly every day. This is how we’ve protected our health and that of our passengers, and this is how public health interest has come first.

COVID-19

S nama putujete sigurno You travel safely with us Piše/By _ Ana Ćulumović Šoštarić

Zahvaćeni globalnom krizom prouzročenom virusom COVID-19 proteklih smo mjeseci uveli brojne mjere kako bismo zaštitili svoje putnike i osoblje jer naš je prioritet sigurnost putnika. Affected by the global crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus, we’ve introduced a number of measures in recent months to protect our passengers and employees because safety is our priority.

U

zaposlenika tvrtke zadržala na najvišoj razini. I u ovim izvanrednim okolnostima prioritet su nam putnici, a posebno oni koji su već kupili karte za domaće i međunarodne letove. Zbog velikog broja telefonskih poziva u našem Kontakt centru otvorili smo dodatnu liniju kako bismo svim putnicima u najkraćem roku izašli u susret te kako bi se regulirala njihova prava. Podsjećamo, od 4. svibnja ove godine na svim našim letovima obvezno je korištenje zaštitnih maski ili pokrivala za lice. Slijedeći odluke i upute

Š. Lugarov

skladu s novonastalom situacijom vezanom uz pandemiju koronavirusa, Croatia Airlines kao nacionalni avioprijevoznik kontinuirano prilagođuje poslovne aktivnosti aktualnom epidemiološkom stanju u Hrvatskoj i inozemstvu te preporukama hrvatskih i svjetskih javnozdravstvenih vlasti. Važno je naglasiti kako naš Ured za upravljanje kriznim situacijama i izvanrednim događajima također aktivno prati razvoj situacije te kontinuirano planira i poduzima sve potrebne mjere kako bi se zdravstvena sigurnost putnika, članova posade zrakoplova i svih drugih

98 _ CROATIA AIRLINES 2/2020

javnozdravstvenih i civilnih zrakoplovnih vlasti, ovu zaštitnu mjeru kompanija je preventivno donijela kako bi se smanjio potencijalni rizik prenošenja koronavirusa tijekom leta. U skladu s novom mjerom, putnici na let trebaju doći sa zaštitnim maskama ili pokrivalima za lice te ih koristiti tijekom cijelog boravka u putničkoj kabini zrakoplova. U cilju zaštite zdravlja putnika i osoblja kompanija nastavlja i s provođenjem mnogih drugih već implementiranih mjera. Članovi kabinske posade koji dolaze u izravan kontakt s putnicima i zemaljskim osobljem opremljeni su odgovarajućim zaštitnim sredstvima, zrakoplovi se svakodnevno dezinficiraju, prilikom redovitog čišćenja putničke kabine provode se pojačane higijenske mjere, a osoblju su na raspolaganju različita dezinfekcijska sredstva. Naši su zrakoplovi opremljeni visokokvalitetnim filterima za pročišćavanje zraka u putničkoj kabini, koji se uz konstantan protok dovodi iz atmosfere, a zrak u putničkom prostoru cirkulira vertikalno tako da je kvaliteta zraka sukladno provedenim istraživanjima i analizama međunarodnih zdravstvenih tijela jednaka kvaliteti zraka u operacijskim salama u bolnicama. Ovisno o popunjenosti zrakoplova kabinsko osoblje razmjestit će putnike na način da među njima postoji najveći mogući razmak, osim za članove obitelji kod kojih se neće inzistirati na održavanju razmaka. Zadnji red u zrakoplovu ostaje prazan kako bi se na taj način osiguralo mjesto za slučaj da se kod nekog od putnika za vrijeme trajanja leta pojave simptomi koji bi mogli upućivati na COVID-19.


U svim segmentima našeg poslovanja naglasak je stavljen na sigurnost.

A. Grubelić

Emphasis is placed on safety in all segments of our business operations.

Putnicima preporučujemo da zbog trenutnih ograničenja u zračnim lukama i u zrakoplovu kad god je to moguće putuju bez dodatne ručne prtljage te da prtljagu predaju na šalterima za registraciju putnika. Croatia Airlines kao društveno odgovorna kompanija u ovim izvanrednim okolnostima uzrokovanim višom silom putnicima nudi fleksibilne uvjete putovanja, a sve se informacije transparentno i ažurno objavljuju na našim internetskim stranicama www.croatiaairlines.hr. Dragi putnici, pridržavajući se svih navedenih mjera, zajedno možemo raširiti krila i osigurati da naša putovanja ostanu sigurna i ugodna čak i u vrijeme krize. 

roatia Airlines, Croatia’s flag carrier airline, has continuously been adapting its business activities to the current epidemiological situation in Croatia and abroad, and implementing the recommendations made by the competent Croatian public health and world health authorities. It’s important to highlight that our Crisis and Emergency Management Office has also actively been monitoring the development of the situation, and has continuously been planning and taking all necessary measures to ensure the health and safety

of passengers, cabin crew members and all other company employees. Even in these extraordinary circumstances, our passengers are our priority, especially those who’ve already bought air tickets for domestic and international flights. Due to an increase in the number of telephone calls and inquiries that our Contact Centre has to handle, we’ve had an additional phone line installed to be able to deal with passenger inquiries as quickly as possible, and to help them regulate and exercise their rights. We remind you that, as of 4th May this year, the use of protective masks or face covers is mandatory on all our flights. Following the decisions and recommendations made by public health and civil aviation authorities, this protective and preventive measure was taken by the company to minimise the potential risk of in-flight coronavirus transmission. This new measure requires that passengers board their flight wearing a protective mask or face cover, and that they have them on throughout their entire stay in the cabin of the aircraft. Aiming to protect the health of our passengers and employees, the company continues to implement measures already implemented at an earlier date. Cabin crew

members who come into direct contact with passengers and ground crew are outfitted with appropriate protection, our aircraft are disinfected daily, enhanced hygiene measures are taken during the routine cleaning of cabins, with various disinfectants available to cabin crew members. Our aircraft are equipped with high-quality cabin air purifier filters ∑ fresh air is continuously introduced from the atmosphere, with the air in the passenger cabin circulating vertically. This means that the air quality in our passenger cabins equals the air quality in hospital operating theatres, which is the conclusion of research and analysis conducted by international health authorities. Depending on aircraft occupancy, our cabin crew makes sure that as great a distance as possible is maintained between passengers during seating allocation, except for family members who aren’t required to maintain a distance between themselves. The back row of our aircraft remains empty ∑ back-row seats are kept empty for passengers who may develop COVID-19 symptoms during flights. Due to current restrictions at airports and on board aircraft, passengers are advised to travel without additional hand luggage whenever possible and to check in their luggage at check-in counters. Even in these extraordinary circumstances that we couldn’t have any influence over, as a socially responsible company, Croatia Airlines is offering its passengers flexible travel arrangements, with all relevant information available at and regularly updated on our website www.croatiaairlines.com. Dear passengers, by adhering to all of the above measures, together we can spread our wings and ensure that our flights remain safe and comfortable even in times of crises such as this one.  Elegantni kontrast bež i crne u colour-block formuli An elegant contrast between Latest info: beige and black in colour www.croatiaairlines.com block formula
