The latest issue of our magazine features articles on the Rešetari meeting of poets, the Croatian festival in France, an interview with Darija Krstičević, head of Government’s Office for Croatians Abroad, and with Vjera Bulat Petrošić, president of the Inter-Association Committee of Croatian associations and institutions in Argentina.

 

The tenth issue of Matica magazine in 2012 came off the presses in mid October, as usual featuring an abundance of fascinating articles from the homeland and abroad.

The cover photo is of the cemetery in Varaždin on All Saints’ Day from the article on this final resting place unique in Europe. In the latest issue also read about the Rešetari meeting of poets, the Croatian festival in France, an interview with Darija Krstičević, head of Government’s Office for Croatians Abroad, and with Vjera Bulat Petrošić, president of the Inter-Association Committee of Croatian associations and institutions in Argentina.
