Kristina Gorišek Novaković

First Airways of the Balkans

In the lower part of the house, we have arranged a memory room dedicated to our Aunt Amber-Kristine Novaković Gorišek.

In the autumn of 1932, the first pilot was flown solo, and in February 1934, she received a diploma after a successful examination before the military commission. Kristina Gorišek was the first airline in Slovenia, Yugoslavia, as well as the entire Balkans. The war Ministry has granted her a medal of Valor.

The flight successes of Kristine Gorišek stopped the Second World War. In 1936 she moved to Zagreb, where she accepted the profession of operator at the airport. There she met a trader Drago Novaković, with whom she married three years later and accepted his surname. She helped her husband in his Zagreb store, and in the middle of 1940, they moved to England. In Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire they opened “Bed and Breakfast”. Kristina Gorišek Novaković has occasionally returned to his homeland, to the immediate, to visit his relatives.
