New view from the apartment in Rijeka.
I’ve “moved” to Rijeka, Croatia for a couple of days to do a new international project/mobility/residency – this time on a special “floating object”: ship Galeb, the famous boat of the Yugoslavian president Josip Broz – Tito. It is now positioned in the main harbour in Rijeka and it is strictly guarded by the police so we had to get special passes and we are daily escorted on the ship by the authorities.

Galeb quietly sitting in the background.
Steps to go on Galeb – hard to imagine Tito and other celebrity walking on it back in the days…
So we explored this massive “time capsule”:
Jovanka’s bedroom (Tito’s wife).
And his private bathroom.
Discussion in progress.
View from the ship over city Rijeka.
We finished the day with a great fish lunch and some delicious cakes and ice cream. Tomorrow will be another busy day and of course I will share with you some special moments.
City of Rijeka – center.
