Luka Modric, 33, won FIFA's best soccer player prize, today. He stopped almost a decade of the Ronaldo & Messi's hegemony. Luka, born in Yugoslavia, had his grandfather shot to death when Serbian troops overtook his home city, during the Croatian Independence War. After that tragedy, the 6-year-old boy went living with his parents in a hotel, in a city named Zandar. Modric used to spend his time playing soccer at the hotel's parking lot. Years later, he's been given FIFA's most important individual prize. What an amazing story can soccer provide us with!
Luka Modric, 33, ganhou hoje o prêmio de melhor jogador do mundo, desbancando a hegemonia de quase uma década da dupla @leomessi e @cristiano. Luka, nascido na Iugoslávia, teve o avô assassinado quando as tropas sérvias invadiram sua cidade, durante a guerra de independência da Croácia. Após a tragédia, o menino de 6 anos passou a morar, com os pais, refugiado em um hotel, na cidade de Zandar. Foi no estacionamento do hotel que o menino passava o dia jogando bola. Hoje, recebeu o prêmio da #fifa de melhor do mundo. Quantas histórias impressionantes o futebol nos proporciona!

The colorful Church of St. Mark is one of the oldest buildings in #Zagreb and of its symbols. It is first mentioned in the list of parish churches in the Kaptol Statute of 1334.
It was built in the 13th century; from that first, Romanesque period, only a window in the south wall and the bell-tower foundation are preserved. Gothic arches and the shrine were built in the second half of the 14th century, when the church got its most valuable part - luxurious Gorhic south portal. In terms of figures it contains, that Gothic portal is one of the most beautiful one in #Croatia . It was made in the Parler workshop, one of the most famous medieval sculpting workshops. The north - western wall contains the oldest known coat - of - arms of Zagreb from 1499.
The church was thoroughly reconstructed in the second half of the 19th century, based on the designs of Viennese architects Friedrich Schmidt and Hermann Bolle. It underwent another reconstruction in the first half of the 20th century. At that time, renowned painter Jozo Kljakovic (1888 - 1969) painted its walls, while the altar was decorated with works of famous sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. #CroatiaFullOfLife#stmark#Church#stmarkssquare#travelgram#InstaTravel#instagood#zagrebcroatia#Instagram#travel#city#old#architecture#walls#lovetotravel#travellife#TravelTheWorld#Photogram#loveToTravel#visitzagreb#zagrebgram#TravelLife#WorldTraveller
I was doing some research on Melania Trump ( @flotus ) and found out that she is from Sevnica, Slovenia which caught my attention because I went to Bosnia in 2013 with my girlfriend who is from there. When I acquired the location information of where I was visiting I searched up the distance between the 2 places and it’s really not that far apart. I absolutely loved it there... best experience of my life. To see the other side of the world. My girlfriend and her mother who is also 47 like Melania left Bosnia in May 1991 just before the Yugoslav Wars started in June 1991. I thought this was interesting information that I wanted to share. #melaniatrump#melania#trump#yugoslavia#yugoslavwars#bosnia#yugoslavian#bosnian#slovania#sevnica#barajı#barajibosnia#gornjipodgradci Do a google search on Baraji Bosnia... those are my first 4 pictures. #bosniaandherzegovina#google#banjaluka#zagreb
