Victory on 5. August 1995.

Yesterday we celebrated a big national holiday in Croatia - Dan pobjede i domovinske zahvalnosti and Dan hrvatskih branitelja (rough English translation would be - Day of victory and state thanking and the Day of Croatian soldiers). So, on the 5. of August 1995. a great victory was carried through the military action called Storm in which a Croatian city Knin was liberated from the occupancy of the aggressor enemy. That day also meant an end of the 5 years long war in Croatia that lasted from the 1991-1995. Although this war was imposed to Croatia, it was our victory!

I'm pulling a trick here seen at the Eric's blog. This is a photo of the special broadcast of the Croatian national television honoring this day. Here you can see a big Croatian flag that was put up on a fortress in Knin at that date in 1995.


  1. I went to the bank yesterday unaware of such holiday and found it closed. I won't make the same mistake next year. hehe
