About Projekt Duga

Projekt Duga means: Project Rainbow where the rainbow represents the sign of a friendship alliance as we encountered with Noah after the flood. Our project is located in the "Kordun" (former Krajina), an abandoned region in the interior of Croatia, close to the border with Bosnia. The region is characterized by the presence of minorities: Serbian returnees, Croatian Muslims and Croats who fled from Bosnia after the war. It is a forgotten region. In everything a great challenge to work on reconciliation and a friendship alliance. The project has been active since May 1999 and focuses on single elderly people and children and young people.

The project has its own camping area and can accommodate 30 to 40 people, has 3 camping cabins with 5 beds each, some caravans, a simple kitchen and café in a stable ("Café Bethlehem"). The camping site is maintained by the local youth and children of "De Leeuwenend" and by the groups that come to visit us.


Projekt Duga started in 1999 as an initiative of Dutch and Croatian volunteers from different churches. At the moment the project is mainly supported by the Evangelical Congregation Jonah in Ede, but volunteers are participants from different (types of) churches.

History and origin of the youth hostel/hostel

Hostel Kroatie, or Hostel The Blue House (Hoste Blue House Croatia) - will only be available as a hostel from summer 2022. From 1999 this location has been used as a volunteer and youth project. It is a place where many activities have taken place that were organized for the local youth. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic prospects, these young people have left this region. And then came corona. The lockdowns have been used to pay attention to the renovation of the location. The result is a nice sleeping loft, some nice camping cabins, shower building, inn with cooking facilities, playing fields and so on.

The hostel (the juegdherberg) was first used by VWO 6 students from the Pantarijn in Wageningen. In the fall of 2021, 40 students had a fantastic week here. In the spring of 2022, a group of 35 Havo 4 and VWO 5 students experienced the same week at the hostel and at the project location. The summer of 2022 will be used to further develop the project location. In the meantime, the hostel is ready as a sleeping accommodation and groups of up to 45 people are very welcome. Individuals, families, smaller groups are also very welcome at Hostel Blue House Croatia.
