SARAH HELM paints a one-sided and depressing picture of Croatia and its capital city that is very different from my experience. One might criticise the amount of Croatian pride being reflected in the media but considering that they have relieved the 1,000-day siege of Bihac, where people were dying of malnutrition, and recovered a third of their country that had been under the control of armed Serbian extremists since 1991 then this pride is surely as understandable as that shown recently in our own VE and VJ Day celebrations.
