The exhibition was officially opened by Ambassador Vladimir Drobnjak (in the picture) who told us how the photographs, taken by Mario Romulic and Drazen Stojcic, truly did give flashes of the great diversity and beauty of his country, which stretched from the Danube to the Adriatic, had over 1,000 islands and will boast one of the longest land frontiers in the Union (1,000 kilometres, with Bosnia). Catch the exhibition if you can (it is on until 5 July). It is free and all you need is proof of your identity.
