Daleko je Sunce (trans. Distant is the Sun) is the sixth studio album from Serbian and former Yugoslav rock band Galija. It is the first part of the trilogy consisting of this album, the album Korak do slobode and the album Istorija, ti i ja.


At the time of the Daleko je Sunce recording Galija started cooperating with flutist Bata Zlatković and lyricist Radoman Kanjevac. Kanjevac brought up an idea of releasing a trilogy which would deal with problems of Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in transition. The result were albums Daleko je Sunce, Korak do slobode and Istorija, ti i ja with which Galija reached the peak of popularity. The first album of the trilogy itself was entitled after a novel by Dobrica Ćosić, while the songs were entitled after the works of writers Branko Ćopić, Ivo Andrić, Laza Lazarević, and Aleksa Šantić.

The song "Zebre i bizoni" was dealing with the enigma of Josip Broz Tito's residence at Brijuni, and the song lyrics were not printed on the album inner sleeve.

Album cover[edit]

The album cover was designed by Slobodan Kaštavarac and features a photograph of sunset at Mount Athos, Greece, taken by Danko Đurić. The back cover features a photograph of the sky above Hilandar Monastery, also taken by Đurić.
