The older you are, the wiser you get
Rastko Koláček was born on 6 April 1956 in Belgrade in the then Yugoslavia. His ancestor František Koláček came from Malhostovice near Brno and immigrated to Belgrade in the latter half of the 1800s. In the early 1900s the Koláček family owned a blacksmith shop and the trade is still alive in their family. Rastko did not complete his university studies and went to the army, then worked mostly in the electronics industry. He lives in Belgrade with his wife and daughter but spends a great part of the year fishing in Boka Kotorska in Montenegro. He says he is interested in many things - from diving and karate to picking mushrooms and playing the guitar. His hobbies include alternative history.
