Sava Šumanović was born in Vinkovci, today's Croatia in 1896. He graduated from High School in Zemun, across the Danube from Belgrade, where he was first introduced to the art of painting. He later enrolled in the College of Arts in Zagreb then lived in Paris for a while, only to return to Serbia and the town of Šid in 1930. He lived in Šid until the beginning of World War II, when the Independent State of Croatia Ustaše's police arrested him with 150 Serbian citizens and took them to a concentration camp in Sremska Mitrovica, where he was ruthlessly executed together with many other Serbs. This was a time of increasing political tension in the first Yugoslav state. Externally, the authoritarian Regency of Prince Pavle was trying to balance popular pro-French and pro-British sentiments with a need to maintain good relations with the country’s Fascist Italian and Nazi German neighbours. Internally, political life was becoming increasingly dominated by Serb-Croat hostility; in 1939, a vain attempt was made to defuse this by imposing a bipartite federal system, under which most of Bosnia (Bosnia (region)) became Croatian territory. In late 1939 or early 1940, Skender Kulenović was expelled from the KPJ for having refused to sign an open letter criticising the government and advocating autonomy for Bosnia and Herzegovina – a decision which prevented him from publishing in many of the journals he had worked with until then. In 1940 he married his first wife, Ana Prokop. *Russian - ''Заботься о себе.'' *Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina: ''Brini o sebi.'' *Spanish - ''Cuida de ti.''

Often used to accompany dancing, the voice of the sopila is that of the Istrian scale.

(Dominican Order)''', (also called '''Johannes Teutonicus''') (born around 1180, Wildeshausen, Westphalia--died 4 November 1252 in Strasbourg) was a German (German people) Dominican (Dominican Order) friar, who was made a bishop in Croatia and later the fourth Master General (Master of the Order of Preachers) of the Dominican Order. Upon his return to Rome, John was then assigned to join his friend and fellow Dominican, Paul of Hungary, to serve as Prior Provincial of the new province (ecclesiastical province) Paul had founded for his homeland, a post in which John served from about 1231 to 1233. At that point, due to the removal from office of the incumbent due to heresy, he was named bishop of Đakovo in Croatia (then part of the Kingdom of Hungary) by the papal legate, the Cistercian cardinal James of Pecorara, a position he accepted only under religious obedience. John would travel his extensive diocese on foot, leading, or driving ahead of him, a little ass which carried his books and vestments. He was at once bishop and missionary. His preaching was incessant; his charity inexhaustible. On himself he spent next to nothing, for he regarded the revenues of his diocese as the property of the poor, and there were many within his jurisdiction. He was given valuable assistance by King Coloman (Coloman of Galicia-Lodomeria), the Duke of Slavonia (brother of the popular saint, Elizabeth of Hungary). John served in this post from 1233 to 1237, when, after repeated requests, he was allowed to retire by Pope Gregory IX. John was so eager to relinquish the office, that he renounced any pension to which he was entitled from the diocese, and returned to his monastery in Strasbourg. In contrast "Lijepa naša", often considered one of the band’s least popular songs, Bregović (who is half Serbian (Serbs) half Croatian (Croats)) combined the Croatian anthem "Lijepa naša domovino" with the Serbian World War I traditional "Tamo daleko" to form the chorus of the song, this proved very unpopular as ethnic tension among the people of Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) was on the rise at the time which would eventually boil over into full scale Yugoslav wars in the 1990s.

Croatia

Tourism (Tourism in Croatia) dominates the Croatian service sector and accounts for up to 20% of Croatian GDP. Annual tourist industry income for 2011 was estimated at €6.61 billion. Its positive effects are felt throughout the economy of Croatia in terms of increased business volume observed in retail business, processing industry orders and summer seasonal employment. The industry is considered an export business, because it significantly reduces the country's external trade imbalance.

The bulk of the tourist industry is concentrated along the Adriatic Sea coast. Opatija was the first holiday resort since the middle of the 19th century. By the 1890s, it became one of the most significant European health resorts.

Croatia has unpolluted marine areas reflected through numerous nature reserves and 116 Blue Flag beaches.
