As Morski writes, the Croatian national football team will go to the World Cup in Qatar to defend the silver from Russia, and will have an even stronger presence owing to the sensational and spectacular Hrvatska kuca (Croatian house) located down by the sea.
All of the necessary contracts have been signed and all of the permits for the future Hrvatska kuca have been secured, meaning that during the World Cup in Qatar, the world’s longest sailing ship with cross sails, the 162-metre long “Golden Horizon” made at the Croatian shipyard Brodosplit, will be docked in Doha.
This huge sailing ship will be a platform for the promotion of overall Croatian excellence, from the booming tourism, gastronomy and culture scene, to the Croatian economy and, of course, to Croatian sport, and what is equally important – it will also double up as an extremely impressive six-star hotel for 300 lucky people.
From the very beginning, the Croatian Football Association has been following all efforts to realise this excellent but very challenging project.
”It was with great pleasure that we received the news that this beautiful sailing ship will be part of Croatia’s representation at the World Cup over in Qatar. We’re in contact with the people who made it all happen, and the Croatian Football Association will logistically help with this big project for the promotion of Croatian football, as well as the entire Croatian nation,” said Marijan Kustic, the president of the HNS.
The details of the large Hrvatska kuca project, as well as how and under what conditions it will be possible to get accommodation on that sailing ship during the World Cup itself in Qatar, will be known in ten days and will then be made publicly available. The project was realised thanks to the Croatian Business Council Qatar, which has been promoting Croatian interests in Qatar for years, according to a report from Vecernji list journalist Karlo Ledinski, as transmitted by N1.
