Same as many others, I never met Jadran. I always looked forward to his pictures. And the Big White Buoy.

Rest in peace. I will miss you.
Emmanuel.L on Oct 23, 2018 21:15 (4 months ago)
Such a sad loss, We have never met though we exchanged emails quite regularly, a while ago I was planning to take an Adriatic cruise , and when I told him about it he was enthusiastic ,planning to meet me when the ship docks, but alas it was not to be as I had to cancel because of family health trouble.He was very much attached to his mother whom he loved so much.So now the Rijeka balcony on the Adriatic has closed forever.
Rest in Peace dear friend, much beloved by all, we will all miss you and your photos and comments.
R.I.P, your friend across the Med as you used to address me.
ventuari on Oct 23, 2018 20:40 (4 months ago)
Sad news. Rest in peace my dear old friend Jadran. I will miss your nice shots from your balcony and also our long chats and conversations by mail.
Another good friend from Shipspotting its gone. He was 68 years old.
Rest in Peace my friend.
Tomislav Raymondi on Oct 23, 2018 16:28 (4 months ago)
With much regret I learn of the passing away of a great friend like Jadran, despite not having met personally, but with whom I had a friendly exchange of mails and a possible meeting in Croatia on a possible trip to France and England this year.

S velikim žaljenjem saznam za propast velikog prijatelja kao što je Jadran, unatoč tome što nisam upoznao osobno, ali s kojim sam imao prijateljsku razmjenu poruka i moguće sastanak u Hrvatskoj o mogućem putovanju u Francusku i Englesku ove godine.

RIP Jadran.

Tomislav Raymondi.

RIP Jadran my dear old friend.I am so sad. Volker.

RIP Jadran, will miss your photos.
Brett Bachmann on Oct 23, 2018 11:39 (4 months ago)
So sad, RIP Jadran...will miss you and your photo's from your (office) balcony :) Brett
Jim McQuarrie on Oct 23, 2018 11:28 (4 months ago)
E-Mailed him yesterday to see what was happening-Sad
davidships on Oct 23, 2018 10:39 (4 months ago)
Sadly, we now know that our dear friend Jadran suffered a stroke last November, from which he did not recover, and he passed away in June, shortly after our last report. May he rest in eternal peace.
davidships on Oct 12, 2018 20:45 (4 months ago)
We have one member who makes occasional visits to Rijeka and will, I am sure, follow up next time. I reported his last info below in June. If any other Croatian-speaking members are in the area and can help, please email me at
Emmanuel.L on Oct 12, 2018 12:58 (4 months ago)
"Dum spira ,spero" (if I got this Latin saying spelt right)which means " while we breath ,we hope." And we all are still hoping that Jadran will once again grace this site with his comments ,and photos, which we all are yearning to see and comment on. Hang on there dear friend. Let destiny play its role.
regards to all his friends and family .
MattyBoy on Oct 12, 2018 11:29 (4 months ago)
Hate to bring it up again but any news from anyone? As a collective, isn't there anything we could physically do?
volker1948 on Jun 29, 2018 09:17 (7 months ago)
Get well dear"old" friend!!!!!
Emmanuel.L on Jun 29, 2018 06:05 (7 months ago)
My dear friend Jadran, hope that you in the near future will be able to see and read these wishes from your friends from all over the world.
Shipspotting maybe is our hobby, but it has been elevated to a brotherhood , a bond of friendship amongst contributers to this site .Many of us who have never met personally, yet feel that this transcends all frontiers, all colour and believe.
Thank you Jadran my friend for through your misfortune you have bonded us more strongly.
Kind regards to everyone involved.
Brett Bachmann on Jun 28, 2018 18:34 (8 months ago)
@davidships do you have an update i.r.o. Jadran's health ?
Juan de la Cruz on Jun 28, 2018 16:15 (8 months ago)
Jadran - Praying for you, man. Miss your photos.
becky on Jun 17, 2018 02:10 (8 months ago)
Jadran my man hang in there buddy!!!
victor radio74 on Jun 16, 2018 21:45 (8 months ago)
Hope that Jadran get once again to his beloved balcony
csaba on Jun 16, 2018 19:38 (8 months ago)
Right on :-), so Jadran is still with us. Hopefully back soon.
Jim McQuarrie on Jun 16, 2018 14:03 (8 months ago)
Here's hoping
Brett Bachmann on Jun 16, 2018 13:41 (8 months ago)
Thanks for the update. In my prayers.
davidships on Jun 16, 2018 11:19 (8 months ago)
Although we have not been able to contact him, we have learned that Jadran is currently receiving specialist medical care. We continue to seek the means to send the warm greetings of the ShipSpotting family to him.
davidships on May 19, 2018 11:57 (9 months ago)
No certain news, I am afraid, but am still hoping local sources can discover something more definite.
Jim McQuarrie on May 19, 2018 10:05 (9 months ago)
E-Mailed him a couple of days ago-Still nothing
volker1948 on May 19, 2018 09:07 (9 months ago)
Still nothing new about our friend Jadran???
volker1948 on Mar 10, 2018 16:42 (11 months ago)
Thank's for information,davidships.
davidships on Mar 10, 2018 15:21 (11 months ago)
We have now discovered that our friend is still seriously ill in hospital. We will post further details as appropriate and as soon as we are able to do so.
Emmanuel.L on Mar 09, 2018 07:44 (11 months ago)
Thanks David, at least there is still some light at the end of the tunnel, let us hope for more positive answers. I know that Jadran had some serious health problems as he said so to me in his emails, let us hope he overcomes them .
Thanks for all for the sincere concern towards our friend Jadran.
davidships on Mar 08, 2018 21:13 (11 months ago)
The latest received via the kind efforts of a few members and others is that neighbours said that he was taken seriously ill, but that they did not know (or were not saying) more. No reply from approaches to Victor Lenac so far.
Emmanuel.L on Mar 08, 2018 17:15 (11 months ago)
Hi friends, re our friend Jadran, I like to be optimistic, but after 4 months tomorrow from his last posting, I must be realistic and fear the worst. I hope that I am mistaken. Have our Croatian friends investigated by contacting the Rijeka hospitals or his ex employers at the dockyard? Maybe they could throw more light on the situation.
Always hoping for the best.
regards and thanks to all those who are helping in this quest.
Jim McQuarrie on Mar 08, 2018 11:29 (11 months ago)
Sent e-mail yesterday-Still nothing-Here's hoping!!!
volker1948 on Mar 08, 2018 10:36 (11 months ago)
Hello friends.We should not forget our friend Jadran.Has anyone heard something??!!. Cheers,Volker.
davidships on Feb 02, 2018 20:59 (1 year ago)
Thanks all for your concern. Korkira, who also lives locally has indeed been investigating but I do not think that we should speculate until something definite is known. That is still ongoing, and as promised below, will report here as soon as it is possible to do so.
volker1948 on Feb 02, 2018 15:59 (1 year ago)
Jadran,dear old friend.Where are you? We all miss you!!!!
Jim McQuarrie on Jan 13, 2018 11:52 (1 year ago)
I think Dragec lives near him Volker-No E-Mail address
volker1948 on Jan 13, 2018 11:29 (1 year ago)
Hello friends.Is there something new about our friend Jadran?!
davidships on Jan 08, 2018 21:52 (1 year ago)
Unfortunately no news yet of Jadran, though we continue to make enquiries with the help of fellow Croatian members. I will reply here - the latest photo from Jadran's famous balcony - as soon as anything further emerges.
MattyBoy on Jan 04, 2018 15:44 (1 year ago)
Further to previous responses/inquiries does anyone know if Mr Jadran is ok?
jadran on Nov 10, 2017 07:04 (1 year ago)
I really much enjoyed reading your two below comments, Flo and Husni, with the indeed *special* and very interesting contents, for sure !!! :-))
Thank you once again (for your effort and time!);
Greetings from Rijeka,
shippingman on Nov 10, 2017 00:50 (1 year ago)

Florian 1860 on Nov 10, 2017 00:10 (1 year ago)
I can fully understand... I guess your new lense is well worth. Your pics are even better now! ;-)

Yeah, almost Munich ("München"), just around 30 km away... The city with the most amazing football club ever... ;-)) And I am certainly NOT talking about FC Bayern – they are just boring! ;-P
csaba on Nov 09, 2017 20:12 (1 year ago)
Tomislav, when are you going to Dubrovnik? I may be there with family next year.
jadran on Nov 09, 2017 18:30 (1 year ago)
Tomi >>> hope to SEE YOU AT RIJEKA >> let's further on be in contact by PM regarding your next year visit to Croatia (Vis, Split, Rijeka)....
Dobro putovanje (good trip) and all best wishes!
Tomislav Raymondi on Nov 09, 2017 18:13 (1 year ago)
Dear Jadran thank you very much for your kind reply, effectively within my project is to visit Vis jointly with Fabiola my wife, and also to visit Rijeka and if posible Split, I think to travel via ferry from Ancona to Dubrovnik and to continue to Vis.

By the way I always watch your photos, which are all of a top quality , I stop to post my photos in this website from time to time because I have not agree with the reasons given by the person in charge for so doing, sometimes the reasons are correct, but in several occasions the reasons stated to delete some of my photos are ridiculous to say it in a polite words, without taking into consideration that some of these persons realized of this fact after a couple of weeks or much time.

Dragi Jadran Hvala vrlo velik dio za tvoj rod odgovor, učinkovito u mom projektu je posjetiti Vis zajedno s Fabiola ženu i o rijeci i ako mjesto Split, mislim putovati preko trajektom iz Ancone do Dubrovnika i dalje Vis.

Inače uvijek gledam svoje fotografije, koji su svi vrhunske kvalitete, da post moje fotografije na ovoj web stranici s vremena na vrijeme jer ja ne slažem s razloga daje odgovorna osoba zbog toga, ponekad razlozi su ispravne , ali u nekoliko navrata iz razloga navedenih za brisanje neke od mojih fotografija smiješno da kaže na lijep riječima, bez obzira da neke od tih osoba shvatila tu činjenicu nakon par tjedana ili puno vremena.

Regards / Pozdrav

jadran on Nov 09, 2017 16:38 (1 year ago)
Hi Tomislav,, I greatly thank you for your very kind (lovely) comment,, and I wish you a good trip, pleasant & relaxing stay and unforgettable time on Island of Vis that you are planning to visit the next year;
Kind regards/Srdačan pozdrav,

Tomi, please continue to practice Croatian language WITH ME, you are, however, and just to tell you, doing very well with Croatian language already....
jadran on Nov 09, 2017 16:16 (1 year ago)
"bota csm wbm"

Jim,, that is absolutely in good order, except, there is NO big White Buoy on this photograph, instead, I'm recently posting the big White Eagle (also seen on this photo)..... he..he...
Thanks and cheers mate!
jadran on Nov 09, 2017 16:11 (1 year ago)
Glad you like this my photo, Flo.... and to tell you something more in this occasion, it is really my great pleasure taking photos with my *new* lens 300mm;
My very best regards to you and to München, at least I guess, its München (please correct me if I'm wrong);
Tomislav Raymondi on Nov 09, 2017 16:06 (1 year ago)
Excellent photos Jadran, the view is merely beautiful, I hope to travel to the Island of Vis the next year 2018, to visit my relatives still alive and to know about my ancestors.

Please excuse my rusted Croatian language but I do not have with whom practice it.



Odlična fotografija Jadran, pogled je samo lijepa, nadam se da putuju na otok Vis iduće godine 2018, posjetiti svoje rođake živ i znati o mojim precima.

Molimo izgovor moj zahrđao hrvatski jezik ali nemam sa kojima je praksa.


volker1948 on Nov 09, 2017 14:51 (1 year ago)

Hello Volker my dear "old" friend,, it's my pleasure to answer to your question,, the "red" ship (in the top left corner of this pic) is the Jj Sietas built (1983) general cargo ship MERO STAR (IMO 8321682), ex Dudu Express ( I have 6 photos on the site of Dudu Express - please take a look!! hehe).
On this photograph MERO STAR is seen on Rijeka anchorage awaiting free berth at the port of Bakar.
