Croatian Blog Royalty

Split is Croatia's second city, but when it comes to entertainment industry, it is second to none.

Many first things that happen in Croatia first happen either in Split or people responsible are from Split, especially if it has something to do with celebrities.

For example, the very first major rap band in Croatia – The Beat Fleet – was founded in Split.

Split celebrities have lately discovered Internet. Some, like Severina Vučković (Severina Vuckovic), didn't like it. Some became enthusiastic. Tvrtko Kale, Hajduk goalkeeper, belong to the second group. He recently opened a blog and is, at least to my knowledge, first Croatian professional athlete to do so.

But his blogging would hardly create the same level of media sensation as the opening three new additions to Croatian blogosphere. Dino Dvornik, Croatian musician known for his tempestuous lifestyle, has opened a blog. He just follows the example of his wife and 14-year old daughter.

It is too early to tell whether those three will be Croatian equivalent of Osbournes, but their blogs are definitely going to be the most popular blogs in Croatia.
