It is 3 years since the devastating earthquake in Petrinja, whose epicentre was in the village of Majske Poljane.
I visited the day after the disaster, again on the first anniversary, and again yesterday - the third anniversary.
Some thoughts of a foreigner living in Croatia for over 20 years, focusing on three locations - the villages of Zazina, Majske Poljane, and Petrinja itself.

Great update. lst time I was in Petrinja we were dodging artillery shells. Bureaucracy remains as entrenched as ever.

A few years ago I was visiting friends in Skopje. They told me about the 1963 earthquake. And they told me how Tito traveled to Skopje immediately after the earthquake and organized the reconstruction and that the Americans under J.F. Kennedy and the Soviets under Nikita Khrushtchev were sending personnel and other forms of relief to Skopje as well ... .

Thanks for the update. At least something is being done from the looks of things. I just don't understanding why it's taken so long as there are still historic buildings in the centre of Petrinja that aren't rebuilt from what you showed in your video.

coz our politicians r braindead and dont really care about us and we as a nation r lazy. croats can tolerate a lot of bs and are hardy folk, which unfortunately as led to a culture of laziness since its 'easier' to live in sht and deal with the cons of it than actually get up and clean it, which those above freely abuse for their own gain. i dont expect these buildings to be properly fixed for another 5 years honestly, we have the resources and money (plus help from EU if needed) to get it all built up in a year honestly, unfortunately corruption, lack of ambition and laziness throw any chances of that out of the window.

Thank you, Paul, for showing us the truth. This should be aired on TV, instead of Plenković's spin.

Yea, ignore the people who say that "things should not be mentioned". In Yugoslavia they had centralized power and it had it's advantages....also you would vanish to Goli otok if you made the great leader look bad... so that was one of the incentives for certain things to work properly, specially if the great leader was behind something in word. Today the trickle down corruption eats away at the funds before even things get started..... You know how much has been spent in "properly planning the allocation of funds"? It's funny and sad at the same time.... Been to Sisak recently and repairs still ongoing.......makes you wonder.

Churches being a priority is extremely stupid. Who or what exactly is to be thanked for the earthquake? Is there an entity deserving of praise for the devastation?

They are important to the local people, they have cultural and social value. Might not be something you agree with but it is how it is.

@@peroperic5988 As church attendance is dropping in civilized countries, like Netherlands for example, the Dutch did a great thing with empty churches: skateboard park, ice skate ring, a place for public to gather and play chess or anything else worth doing. Max social value, the building is preserved for culture and no empty stories are sold.

@@goranelez9956 this isn't the case here. You know what else westerners do? They save money and invest it into industry and community. They don't freeze it all in real estate and live like some petty barons. There is a lot that can be said about Church (all of them), it being a huge problem for Croatia isn't one of them.

@@peroperic5988 Of course they invest in prosperity (which presumes zero for religions), while Croatia spends literal billions on churches plus Vatican agreements. Just look at Maksimir stadium and how much the people will have to give up for it (a dozen fields to build churches), pure extortion paid by normal people.

You really shouldn't mention Tito. Specially if we have in mind your background. Britts have done more than enough. There are other thousands to be related to his name and colonel Patrick Scott together. These (and many other) thousands are still taboo today.

Mr Bradbury said nothing wrong, these are facts. Ah, yes, he forgot to mention the devastating earthquake in Banja Luka in 1969, everything was also renovated and rebuilt. Faster than “Plinković's” corrupt government would ever be.

I disagree, he is calling a spade a spade. Wiping out history is the worse thing you can do (otherwise we'll never learn from it). Whether your pro or anti Tito, you should always have the right to voice your opinion.
