Ice Rink Opens In Dubrovnik







 Ice skating in Zagreb.





I decided to throw in this piece of recent news because it's related to a previous post I did regarding hockey (hokej) school in Pula. Just sort of amusing and interesting. I used to be a hockey kid, meaning early Saturday and Sundays at practice and then games during the week. Here in Canada that's not a big surprise, practically an everyday occurrence for thousands of kids everyday. Now the northern parts of Croatia, mainly in the capital of Zagreb, has had a history of hockey and skating rinks going back to the early 1900's.
 
But now Dubrovnik, which lies on the southern tip of the Dalmation coast is having skating and hockey too. I was really surprised when Pula had an ice rink open up. Pula is known for beautiful sunny beaches, wine making, shipbuilding, fishing, ancient ruins, palm trees, and tourism. But now the ancient walled city of Dubrovnik too. Talk about incongruous. Amazing. Who woulda thunk it?

The hockey club “Bosna” from Sarajevo and the Dubrovnik Hockey Club will play the first ever game of ice hockey in Dubrovnik on Saturday the 20th of February. Sponsored by the City of Dubrovnik and the ice hockey club from Zagreb “Medvešćak”, the game will take place in the public ice rink situated on the public parking garage. “We hope to contribute to the popularity of this sport and ice skating in Dubrovnik and bring our two cities closer together” commented Vlatko Komaric from the Dubrovnik ice hockey club.
