Two presidents attend opening of renovated Calvinist school in NE Croatia

Croatian and Hungarian Presidents Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic and Janos Ader on Wednesday evening visited the village of Karanac, northeast Croatia, to attend the opening of the renovated school of the Protestant Reformed Christian Church.

The local Calvinist community is marking the 200th anniversary of the construction of the church. 

Some 900 Calvinist believers used to live in this Croatian village near the border with Hungary, but now there are only 95, according to local dignitaries who welcomed the two presidents.

During their visit, Grabar-Kitarovic and Ader talked with ethnic Hungarians.
