Croatian president says people are bonds between countries

The bonds between countries are people and not state structures or policies, the visiting Croatian president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic said in the Slovak city of Trnava on Thursday.

During her two-day visit to Slovakia, which she began in Bratislava on Wednesday, the Croatian president also stopped in Trnava to visit the Ursuline Church of St. Anna where remains of three Catholic martyr saints, including Croat Marko Krizevcanin, are kept.

Trnava has often been called "Little Rome", or more recently, the "Slovak Rome".

On Thursday afternoon, the Croatian president will travel to Banska Bystrica where she will hold a lecture at Matej Bel University which will award her an honorary doctorate.
