Jutarnji list (lit. "The Morning Paper") is a daily newspaper in Croatia with a circulation of 52,763 copies as in March 2013.[3]

It was launched in April 1998, becoming the first successful Croatian daily newspaper to appear since the 1950s.[2] It was named after a Zagreb daily that used to circulate before World War II. In 2003, the paper also launched a comprehensive Sunday edition, Nedjeljni Jutarnji.

It quickly took the majority of Croatian media market and became one of the most read newspapers in that country. In the first five years, it sold more than 214 million copies.[2] During the actual economic crisis the number of sold copies diminished from about 80,000 in 2007 to about 53,000 in 2013. The crisis hit in te same manner other daily newspapers in Croatia.[4]

The newspaper is part of Europapress Holding media group.

Today, Jutarnji is considered to be a more left-leaning, liberal daily than Večernji list.

On 19 February 2005, Jutarnji list published an exhaustive biography of Ante Gotovina.[5][6]


In February 2008, the paper was involved in a scandal when it published an interview [7][8] with what was thought to be Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader. The reporter contacted 23-year-old Viktor Zahtila by e-mail and SMS, who he assumed to be the prime minister.[9] Zahtila replied from the address linija04@gmail.com [10] and nowhere explicitly stated that he was Ivo Sanader. The reporter, Davor Butković, never checked to see if he was actually communicating with the PM.
