Which Zagreb native wouldn’t admire someone who has dared to make his mark on the Sava River towards the Black Sea? Who hasn’t at least once wanted to do so himself? The fact that two of us have fills me with pride. What follows is a true story of a young writer, who wins over readers, emotionally leading them, feeding their curiosity and breaking down all prejudices. The Sava and Danube Rivers, so much older than history and impartial to borders, connect the people and nations on their banks. They tell tales of the fate of empires, while in the background, friendship, hard work and sincere human contacts and a unique atmosphere become even more significant and precious.
