Celebrities including Naomie Harris, Adam Garcia, Louise Thompson, Olivia Inge, Wayne Hemingway, Percy Parker and Tim Westwood, joined the Croatian Prime Minister Mr. Zoran Milanovic tonight, as they enjoyed a VIP Island party on the River Thames. The party was to celebrate the launch of Croatia’s new ‘Full of Life’ tourism campaign in London.

West- Ham’s Croatian Manager Slaven Bilić, was also among the famous faces who attended the star-studded event at Butlers Wharf Pier on the South Bank who enjoyed cocktails and Croatian canapés in the September Sun of London.

World-renowned DJ Norman Jay MBE was on the decks as guests joined Minister for Tourism Darko Lorencin at the event, while British street artist Inkie created a cool and contemporary live artwork called ‘Full of Life’.

Party-goers were also invited to explore a magical, man-made Croatian ‘island’ – featuring medieval turret, indigenous flowers and a traditional klapa band – which was moored beside the river cruiser and had earlier amazed onlookers by drifting down the Thames to launch the new drive.

The Croatian National Tourist Board’s Full of Life campaign celebrates the rich and varied activities and experiences on offer throughout Croatia, from historical hotspots to fine wines and world-class music festivals.

Ratomir Ivicic, Director of Croatian National Tourist Board, said he was delighted to have brought Croatia to London in such style. He added: “Whether your dream break involves hopping from one perfect Mediterranean island to the next, exploring ancient sites, trying the best local food and drink or sport, Croatia has something to offer every taste and lifestyle.

“We are thrilled that we were able to bring the essence of Croatia to life, brightening up the Thames with a piece of Croatian island magic that excites the senses and inspires – somewhere that is truly ‘Full of life.”

The Full of Life party featured a selection of Croatian surprises, including a welcome from traditional Alka guards and an exhibition of stunning photography showcasing the beauty of the island.

The public can catch a glimpse of the beauty of Croatia at Butlers Wharf Pier where the island will be moored from Thursday 1st October – Friday 2nd October.
