The Zagreb Tourist Board sports website has been created in co-operation with the Croatian Olympic Committee to show the capital as a modern sports centre.
The site includes an overview of current sporting events, a list of sports and recreational facilities and halls, proposed activities, and a historical overview of rich Zagreb and Croatian sports history.
Martina Bienenfeld, Director of The Zagreb Tourist Board, said: “The Zagreb Tourist Board develops sports tourism as a special form of the tourist offer that contributes to creating a new, quality, and competitive position in the tourism market.
“Our city offers great outdoor and indoor spaces for professional, amateur, and recreational sports, as well as for sports preparations of foreign and domestic competitors. Our pages unite in one place the entire Zagreb sports offer, providing the necessary information in a clear, efficient, and effective way. In addition, the new pages represent a platform for concrete promotional activities that we will intensify with a new promotional film dedicated to sports in Zagreb.”
Zlatko Mateša, President of the Croatian Olympic Committee, says that in addition to the impressive results of Zagreb athletes who promote the City, the tourist effects achieved through sports events are very much part of this success story.
He said: “Almost every year, we have sporting events that significantly affect the occupancy of tourist facilities in Zagreb, and those already established and world-famous, such as the Snow Queen or Hanžek, have been doing so for many years.”
