Opening ceremony: Croatian World Games - Zadar 2006!

Croatian World Congress CWC

The opening ceremony of the Croatian World Games kicks off with a Holy Mass at Zadar's St. Anastasia Cathedral on Sunday July 16 at 7:00 pm. Holy Mass will be led by Msgr. Ivan Prendja, Archbishop of Zadar. The event will then move to the Zadar Forum, as of recently called John Paul II Field, where the second half of the Games opening ceremony will take place. Behind the scenes of the musical and stage program that will be put on is Neven Stojakovic, a well known Zadar set designer with plenty of experience in projects like this one.

We can already confirm that the Croatian national anthem will be sung at the opening ceremony by Natali Lovrinov, the winner of a Croatian talent show in Australia. Also appearing will be Josip Zanki and Valerija Glavan, who took part at the Croatian Children's Festival in New York. Along with these performers we are preparing a few surprises, and are pleased to announce an appearance by Vanna, one of Croatia's top singers. All of the representations will present themselves at a parade before the central grandstands following the tradition of similar large sporting events. Further details on what you can expect at the opening of the Games will be posted on our web pages in the days to come.
