Easter is the feast of Christian hope, communion, faith and love for the neighbor, especially the one in distress.

Easter is the richness of the encounter, the feast of coexistence and Christian understanding. In that spirit, to you personally, and to all Orthodox believers, I congratulate Easter!

I want to continue to cultivate the culture of coexistence in our Zagreb and to continue to share the mutual respect and respect of each other.
