A new info center & gift shop – Hello Zagreb – officially opened the doors of its branch office in Zagreb on Wednesday.It is an innovative brand for both domestic and foreign tourists, and this is just a logical sequence of Darrer’s development, which has been producing printed tourist maps since 2014. The info center and gift shop are located in the busy Radićeva Street at number 14 as a reference and starting point for all tourists and visitors to Zagreb, of which there are more and more every day. Our center is also home to our unique design. We strive to make souvenirs as functional innovative memories of Zagreb. From our own symbols of the city to domestic production from natural materials, we express ourselves traditionally, but also creatively in the trend with the time ahead. ” Sven Darrer, the company’s director, points out and adds that for the third year in a row they are making city maps and part of the European family USE-IT maps (free maps for young travelers made by locals) created through the eyes of locals, distributed in more than 40 European cities.The philosophy of the innovative info center and souvenir shop is based on the aspiration to realize souvenirs as functional and innovative memories, and the promotion of young designers and fresh ideas waiting for their place under the sun. In front of us are new issues of city maps, authentic products and projects that we plan to encourage the local population to get to know their own city, but also to travel and experiences that we all strive for, Darrer points out and adds.We want to provide a unique experience to all generations who visit Zagreb. And that is why we approach visitors individually”Darrer concludes.Related news: PRINTED TICKETS ARE IN FASHION AGAIN
Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara claims Manchester United never made a serious move to sign him – despite weeks of media speculation linking him with Old Trafford. Press Association Thiago’s father and agent Mazinho said on Wednesday that his son had been “very close” to joining United, but the Spain Under-21 international appeared to contradict that claim in an interview with RAC1 on Thursday. “The truth is that in no moment did United come to us and talk to us. It came from the press, it was always a lie,” he said. Reflecting on his decision to leave Barcelona, he said: “It’s unfair to say I wasn’t patient. The club knew my situation. I waited for them, especially before the European Championships, but they never contacted me. I didn’t feel valued. “I wanted to compete. The club knew that I wanted to leave and they didn’t do much to change that. “Everyone looks out for their interests, I wanted to feel valued and I wanted to compete so I decided to leave the club and join Bayern. “I was waiting and waiting all summer, there was a point when I had to decide. “All a footballer wants is to play football and I wanted to play, they [Barcelona] didn’t do much for me to stay, so here I am.” The 23-year-old moved to European champions Bayern from Barcelona earlier this month, reuniting him with former Barca boss Pep Guardiola – the man who handed him his professional debut in 2009. A lack of first-team appearances last year activated a clause in the player’s contract which meant he could leave Barca for a reduced price, but it seems that was not enough to tempt United.
