Baby Boom in Split

It must have been very boring Christmas holiday season. At least this is the impression given by sudden baby boom in Split. For the past five days maternity ward of local hospital is literally under siege. Twice as many babies are being delivered than under normal circumstances. It is already certain that number of births in 2004 is going to be higher than in 2003.

Most people think it is unlikely that this flood of "New Year babies" is going to dramatically change negative demographic trends in Croatia.
