In cooperation with the Croatian Olympic Committee, the Zagreb Tourist Board has published a new website dedicated to sports in Zagreb. You can check it out HERE.

Given the growing importance of Zagreb as a modern sports center and the need to further position Zagreb in the segment of sports tourism, the site includes an overview of current sporting events, a list of sports and recreational facilities and halls, proposed activities, and a historical overview of rich Zagreb and Croatian sports history, reports HRTurizam.

“TZGZ develops sports tourism as a special form of the tourist offer that contributes to creating a new, quality, and competitive position in the tourism market,” says the director of TZGZ, Martina Bienenfeld, and adds that Zagreb has repeatedly proven itself as a top host of numerous domestic and international sporting events, including various world championships and world cups.

“Also, our city offers great outdoor and indoor spaces for professional, amateur, and recreational sports, as well as for sports preparations of foreign and domestic competitors. Our pages unite in one place the entire Zagreb sports offer, thus providing the necessary information in a clear, efficient, and effective way. In addition, the new pages represent a platform for concrete promotional activities that we will intensify with a new promotional film dedicated to sports in Zagreb.

Congratulations to all our Olympians and Paralympians on the great successes achieved at the Olympic Games, where we once again showed that, although we are a small country, we can achieve great sporting as well as tourist successes,” said Bienenfeld.

The President of the Croatian Olympic Committee, Zlatko Mateša, said that in addition to the impressive results of Zagreb athletes who promote the City, the tourist effects achieved through sports events are very much part of this success story.

“Almost every year, we have sporting events that significantly affect the occupancy of tourist facilities in Zagreb, and those already established and world-famous, such as the Snow Queen or Hanžek, have been doing so for many years. As a perennial European capital of tourism at the time of Advent events, the Sljeme Snow Queen gives Zagreb an additional icing on the tourist attractions at this time of year. The renovated RŠC Jarun also offers an opportunity for major sporting events of the European and world level, so we will soon talk more about it in the context of sports offer and sports tourism. Numerous smaller sporting events with a long tradition also significantly enrich Zagreb’s sports offer, which is truly diverse and has it united in one place – it is to be commended,” said Mateša.

The website is available in six languages ​​- English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and, of course, Croatian, and the navigation is designed by categories that can be searched quickly and easily.

The Croatian Minister of Tourism and Sports, Nikolina Brnjac, stated that Croatia has proven to be an excellent host in the organization of numerous sports events. The management of such events contributes to a more complete and diverse tourist offer.

“By developing sports tourism, we also contribute to the development of year-round tourism, so I welcome this cooperation between the Zagreb Tourist Board and the Croatian Olympic Committee, whereby tourists, especially sports fans, will have the opportunity to learn all the information about current sports events in one place and get to know Zagreb and Croatian sports history better. Therefore, I hereby call on all organizers of sports and other events to once again take responsibility and respect for epidemiological measures, and tourists to responsibly enjoy the rich tourist offer of Zagreb and Croatia.”

For the needs of promoting Zagreb as an ideal sports destination, a promotional film was made and available on the official YouTube channel as well as on the website:
