Lothar Matthäus came with the whole family and, to the delight of the audience, showed off his soccer skills on the lawn of the polo club.
A concert by the “Young Virtuosos” Apor Szüts, Daniel Ali Lugosi, Zoltán Bacsy-Schwartz and Carmen Boateng – known from the TV show of the same name – joined by star guest Placido Domingo Jr. (son of opera superstar Placido Domingo) took place in the afternoon. The grand piano was transported to Etyek especially for this concert.
