The last two years Zadar County is one of the most developed region in Croatia. In 2015, it has over 10 million overnight stays.
Paradoxically, only about 30 kilometres from the city of Zadar, there is the Lončari village where lives Nikola Lončar, the pensioner of the Serbian nationality, is the only man who lives with his wife Bosiljka in the Lončari village in Croatia. Although he has repeatedly asked the local authorities to provide him the basic infrastructure requirements for life, ones that existed before the ’91 – ’95, nothing has been done. Whenever he goes to the supermarket, about 4 km away, he regularly takes his shovel to bury holes and landslides on the macadam that were caused by the rain.
600 meters above sea level, and about one kilometre from Nikola Loncar’s home, is the Orljak plateau, the location of one of the largest wind farms in Zadar County. Built two years ago, in cooperation with the Swiss partner Korlea Invest Holding, 19 power units of 2.5 MW with a total installed capacity of 47.5 MW were placed here.
Thanks to a solar panel donated to Nikola Loncar by a Croatia humanitarian association, his house now has limited electricity.
The aim of the documentary film “When the wind blows over Lončari village” is a support to integration of this village in the rural development program of the Zadar County and the European Union, as well as to become a desirable place for life, work and vacation. In the last two years Zadar County is one of the most developed region in Croatia. In 2015, it has over 10 million overnight stays.
