Shocking revelation: Croatia has no Gold

As for states of former Yugoslavia, Serbia has the most gold, 19.4 tons, followed by Macedonia with 6.9 tonnes, Slovenia with 3.2 tonnes and Bosnia and Herzegovina with three tons.

Croatia and Norway are the only countries in Europe with no gold reserves.

Croatia has been without most gold reserves since 2001, when the Croatian National Bank (HNB), at the time when it was led by Governor Željko Rohatinski, sold all of its gold.

no wonder your athletes (and olive pickers, math olympiad kids etc.) have to bring it back piece by piece from abroad

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Can the Serbs swap their gold for a bit of coastline? I hate being landlocked.

Haha is that a joke in Balkans too?

For the old Soviet realm there are lots of jokes about Estonians being kinda slow & humorless. Got a good Estonian buddy actually, Russian speaking who doesn't fit the stereotype, and neither does Andy on here, he's usually witty so for my personal experience a joke that holds little no weight haha

Andy is quite good and is consistent. Honourary WWE'r for sure.

I didn't know Estonians/Latvians/Lithanians/Finns ever laughed let alone cracked some good jokes. He might be one of the exceptions though. )

I have a Slovak team member, now that dude is slow and humourless. Might be a Slovak thing or just him.

Finns and Eesti are one of the most humourful nations in the world. Black morbid humour of the finest. Beat Brits easily. not sure bout Lats and Lits though.
