ZAGREB, March 1, 2020 – Members of the Czech expedition “Tatra Around the World 2” in Zagreb on Saturday presented the project and the Tatra truck in which they are travelling around the world.
They kicked off several days ago and Croatia is their fifth destination, after which they will head for Montenegro and then east. On their route, among other places, are Turkmenistan, Chile, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal and Gambia.
The first world expedition in a Tatra truck took place before World War I and the biggest one was in 1987, said the leader of the expedition, Petr Holecek.
The latest expedition consists of five permanent members who can be joined by anyone interested in the adventure, whether for a couple of days or a longer period, he added.
