As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, all foreign tourists in Zagreb or other visitors who have spent at least one night in the Croatian capital will be able to be tested for the novel coronavirus on Saturdays and Sundays (with prior notice), and more detailed information about this service has been made available here.
On that same page, you can find out about the possibilities of testing foreign tourists in Zagreb in the wider Zagreb area in hotels, public and private institutions, with data on working hours, the types of COVID-19 tests and of course – test prices.
The Minister of Tourism and Sport of the Republic of Croatia, Nikolina Brnjac stated: ”In order to make our tourists’ stay in Croatia as pleasant and safe as possible, the Ministry of Tourism and Sport has launched an initiative and cooperation with the tourist board system on the project of tourist safety in Croatia. As such, the Zagreb Tourist Board recognised this initiative and enabled coronavirus testing on weekends through its Visitor Centre. I want to emphasise that safety is the future of tourism, so this initiative is extremely important for the perception of Croatia as a safe destination. I see this as a big upgrade to the already launched activities related to the Safe Stay in Croatia project.”
“Given the demanding times we’re living in, we decided to make it even easier for foreign tourists in Zagreb by introducing the necessary tests for coronavirus, and thus, once again send out a message about our city as a safe and responsible destination. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve paid special attention to safety because tourists are looking for high safety standards, quality and risk-free travel above all. As testing in Zagreb is more difficult to conduct on weekends, we want to provide this opportunity to Zagreb’s visitors, so testing will take place on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays and non-working days from 10:00 to 18:00,” stated the director of the Zagreb Tourist Board, Martina Bienenfeld.
The director also gave special thanks to the Dr. Andrija Stampar Institute and the Ministry of Tourism and Sport of the Republic of Croatia for their support in regard to this project and for sending out a reassuring message to foreign tourists in Zagreb.
