“Well known writer and photographer Davor Rostuhar has become the first Croatian to make it to the South Pole on foot.

Rostuhar set off 47 days ago from Croatia and arrived at the South Pole on Wednesday evening around 7 pm Croatian time.

Armed with a Croatian flag, Rostuhar announced his arrival with the words ‘Victory’ and a photo from the South Pole on his Facebook page, on which he has kept people updated on throughout his journey.

Davor was equipped with all he needed, including food, a tent and other necessities, as he made his way on foot and on skies to the South Pole, walking 1,163 km (722 miles) to become the first Croatian and the 21st person in the world to achieve that feat.” (Croatia Week)
