One of the best basketball players in the world, Bojan Bogdanović, and Dubrovnik native Zrinka Šahurić, got married yesterday in the heart of the Old City.
The NBA star and Croatian national player and Zrinka exchanged their vows at the Jesuit Church in the presence of a large number of guests.
Bojan and Zrinka have already had a civil marriage and have a son named Luka.
This young couple, who has been in a relationship for six years, and keep their private life strictly confidential. They are not active on social media, so very little is known about them. They live in the United States and spend their summers at Bojan's villa in Lozica, just outside of Dubrovnik.
In addition to his sports career, Bojan (34) is also involved in real estate who owns several properties in Dubrovnik, as well as a luxury hotel and restaurant. Despite having multiple exclusive properties in the centre of Dubrovnik, when they are on vacation in the city, the Bogdanovićs mostly spend their time in Lozica, where the athlete bought a villa several years ago.
"I fell in love with Dubrovnik when I was a child, visiting with my parents, and I am thrilled that I was able to fulfil a childhood dream and buy a beautiful house in the heart of the city," said the celebrated NBA player on one occasion. In Bojan's house in the historic centre of Dubrovnik, a restaurant called 'Forty Four' was opened, attracting international sports stars, guests, and locals alike.
Bojan once admitted to the media that he didn't initially have the idea of opening a restaurant, but the key moment was when they decorated the building's walls with two of Bogdanović's jerseys. Sports and basketball enthusiasts immediately recognized the symbols, and since then, 'Forty Four' has become a hot destination.
Friends and acquaintances of Bojan Bogdanović say that despite his global popularity, this native of Mostar remains humble and approachable, just like his closest family members, parents, and sisters.
He plays for the Detroit Pistons in the NBA and is believed to have a salary of around $20 million a year.
