PHOTOS: It's True! Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia on Holiday
Total Croatia News broke the story last Friday. And now it’s finally been confirmed – it’s true, Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia
TCN journalist extraordinaire Iva Tatić was relaxing on the island of Korčula, playing with her dog, when last week she heard an eyebrow-raising piece of gossip through the open window. “Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia!”

Ever the professional, Iva leaned out of the balcony to ask a neighbour to confirm the rumour. “That’s what they’re saying” replied the neighbour, above a small street filled with laughter. The cause of the chuckles? Not only are Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia, they’ve asked for the entire islet of Vrnik to be evacuated so they can enjoy a private visit. “Hmm, difficult request,” thought Iva. Vrnik is an inhabited island. People live there throughout the year. There are probably around 100 people there right now.
Much to the disappointment of her dog, Iva’s journalistic instincts took over. She sat down at the computer and set about trying to confirm the rumour in order to break the news. At her time of writing, she was unable to confirm the story. There was nothing in any other media confirming Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia.
How Iva Tatić broke the story about Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia last Friday. Her’s was the first story to announce the pop star’s arrival. It has since been confirmed that the celebrity couple are indeed aboard the pictured yacht, Lana
But, sometimes journalistic instinct is all you need. Iva confirmed that the yacht Lana had been pictured in the surroundings of the Korčula archipelago. At 107 meters in length and capable of accommodating 12 guests and 31 crew, this is no ordinary yacht. Some special visitors were definitely holidaying here.
Knowing that Beyonce and Jay Z had been here nine years ago, on Hvar, and two years prior to that had been in Dubrovnik, Iva went with gut instincts and published the story, being careful to mention it was uncorroborated. Her story was the first to break the news of a visit that is now 100% confirmed. It’s true, Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia.

The yacht Lana was spotted further up the coast on Saturday, around the Kornati archipelago. Then, on Saturday afternoon, tourists visiting the island of Žut were finally able to corroborate Iva’s story. They managed to grab pictures of Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia. They were dining in an otherwise deserted restaurant, Fešta on the island. The visit coincides with Beyonce’s 39th birthday.
Iva’s story was confirmed by Croatian portal Zadarski.hr one day after Iva published when they were able to show photos of the couple dining on the island of Žut
This being visit number three for Beyonce and Jay Z in Croatia, we wouldn’t count out a return visit next year for her 40th. The couple clearly love coming to Croatia. Be sure to look out for Total Croatia News again breaking the story if they do. Since the writing of her story, Iva Tatić and her dog have been taking their cuddling sessions much closer to Iva’s open window.
