Zarez (English: The Comma) is a Croatian biweekly newsprint magazine covering literature, arts, culture and current affairs.

History and profile[edit]

Zarez was established in 1999 after a group of intellectuals decided to break away from the government-favored cultural magazine Vijenac because of differences of editorial policies proscribed by Matica hrvatska, the publisher of Vijenac, and the views of the editorial staff. They formed a company called Druga strana (The other side) and started a new, independent, cultural magazine first published on 19 February 1999.[1] Even though it is widely considered to be one of the best cultural publications in Croatia, it always struggled to secure its finances because of low circulations of culture-oriented publications in the country.[citation needed] It is currently financed by the Croatian Ministry of Culture and the City of Zagreb.[2]
