Works Finally Begin on Long-Awaited ”Zagreb on the Sava”

Lauren Simmonds

A sigh of relief as the long-awaited and much anticipated Zagreb on the Sava project finally gets underway, and there’s even been talk of an opening date.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 21st of June, 2019, the “Zagreb on Sava” (Zagreb na Savi) manifestation will take place at three locations on the south and north river coasts of two popular Zagreb bridges, Most Slobode (Freedom bridge) and at the so-called Hendrix’s bridge.

Rather unsurprisingly, this Zagreb project failed to begin on June the 19th, as was recently announced by the City of Zagreb, and there’s now a brand new date for the opening of the long-awaited “Zagreb on Sava”, Vecernji list writes, with accompanying photos.

The planned summer program set to be held on the banks of the Sava river which runs through Zagreb should, at least according to Sanje Cvjetko Jerković, head of the capital city’s strategic planning office, begin on July the 5th this year.

The installation of the assembly pavilions has already been completed, and part of the planned activities, she said, will also be organised earlier. – The holiday program, called Odmorko, which is for children who intend to spend their school holidays in Zagreb, is set to begin in the next few days, claims Sanja Cvjetko Jerković.

The schedule for this year’s summer has been published on the website of the Zagreb School Sports Association, which is organising the “Odmorko” program on the south side of the Sava river, next to Freedom bridge. According to them, from the 26th of June to the 12th of July, volleyball on the sand can be played. In addition, the Croatian flying disk alliance will organise the playing of various sports with discs on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Various other events have been organised and arranged within the scope of this much anticipated Zagreb summer manifestation, and as previously mentioned, when finally complete, “Zagreb on Sava” will take place in three locations.
