Dear Friends and Business Partners!
Tourist life in Zagreb is intense, yet we keep seeing new things being added to it every month. One piece of news which certainly marked the month of February was the working visit of the Zagreb Tourist Board delegation to Tel Aviv.
The Zagreb Tourist Board
Successful Presentation Held in Tel Aviv
At the IMTM Fair held in Tel Aviv, the Zagreb Tourist Board held a very successful press conference at the beginning of February, presenting the tourist potentials of the capital of Croatia to an audience of over a hundred journalists from the Israeli media and representatives of tourist agencies.
VIP Snow Queen Trophy
The Best Audience in the World
This year, the world’s top female skiers competing in the fourth consecutive VIP Snow Queen Trophy race were joined for the first time by the world’s top male skiers at the first FIS World Cup event for men. Both took place in mid-February on Sljeme near Zagreb and received nothing but accolades, not only for the exceptionally good organization and the well prepared ski-runs, but also for the special atmosphere created by the audience.
