Our grandfather always told us that all Petračićs were from Petrinja. Our surname appears on the city fortress military unit lists from the beginning of the 17th century. Petrinja, our small town at the mouth of the Petrinjčica river, just below the Petrinja hills, has always been our home.
The Petračić family, mother Vesna, a retired professor of mathematics, father Miroslav, a retired pediatric surgeon, and the three of us, Sanja, Tin and Iva. The three of us were born 10 years apart but we all went to the same preschool, primary and music schools in Petrinja.
Our youngest Petračićs, 5 of them, have loved Petrinja since their first days. Tin’s and Sanja’s children know every corner of the park, every link on the swings of the children’s playground, the taste of grapes in our vineyard, every pebble of the beach near the river.
Petrinja is with us and in us and we have to create beautiful new moments and memories, so that our little ones can experience them and convey the story of our beautiful city wherever they are.
