„Slopey – Tkalča“ – najturističkija zagrebačka ulica opet je dostupna osobama u invalidskim kolicima

first_imgThis is a continuation of the successful cooperation between the Zagreb Tourist Board and Travabled, a travel agency for affordable tourism. Thus, on this occasion, TZGZ and Travabled co-financed the replacement of 12 dilapidated slopes that bridge the height differences of catering and retail facilities with one to two steps in Tkalčićeva Street. “Apart from the fact that the newly installed slopes will allow our fellow citizens with reduced mobility to re-enter the facilities covered by the project, they will further contribute to the overall positive image of the city of Zagreb as a tourist destination that takes care of all its visitors, including those with increased need for accessibility. ” Kekić from Travableda. This weekend, the continuation of the excellent project “Slopey – Tkalča” was realized, which co-financed new slopes that bridge the height differences in the city of Zagreb, because for people in wheelchairs they are an almost insurmountable obstacle to movement. All 12 newly made slopes were made to measure in the Lipovica-Popovača Penitentiary, and they were painted by Zagreb street artists who have been decorating once-neglected city spaces for several years. mammoth.center_img With this laudable initiative, most of the buildings on Zagreb’s most touristy street will once again be more accessible to people in wheelchairs, people with reduced mobility, families with children in wheelchairs and all others for whom stairs are an almost insurmountable obstacle to movement. The project “Slopey-Tkalča” is just one in a series of interactive projects aimed at making the urban space even more accessible, pleasant and attractive, both to the residents of Zagreb and to all visitors who come to Zagreb in increasing numbers every year.last_img read more

For the first time in history, more than 3 billion was collected from tolls

first_imgAlthough the motorway network in Croatia is mostly built, HAC’s activities are focused on continuing the construction of Corridor 5C and new sections such as the Novi Vinodolski bypass and investing in enhanced road infrastructure maintenance and safety standards, for which the company will invest more than HRK 600 million. Work continues on the project of a new toll collection system which will give Croatia a system based on a combination of two modern and proven technologies; billing via an upgraded version of the in-vehicle ENC device (DSRC) and the automatic license plate reading system (ALPR). This will significantly increase throughput and reduce harmful emissions caused by congestion, because while manual toll collection has a capacity of about 200 vehicles per hour, the new system allows the passage of up to 3000 vehicles. In financial terms, the most significant revenue in 2019 was generated on the A3 motorway, in the amount of almost HRK 992 billion, or HRK 475 million. Individually by months, the most important is August, when tolls were collected in the amount of HRK 2019 million. The share of non-cash payments in 60 (ENC and credit cards) is more than 2018 percent. Compared to XNUMX, we have an increase in traffic outside the main tourist season. photo: HAC / Source: Privredni.hrcenter_img According to the first provisional data for 2019, traffic on 61.565.203 vehicles and a total toll collection in the amount of HRK 3.004.779.793,60 was recorded on all motorways under the jurisdiction of Croatian Motorways and the Rijeka – Zagreb Motorway.

Traminer Festival in Ilok – the first Croatian post-corona wine event

first_img“Our friends and partners in the organization of the Traminer Festival, Ilok Cellars, in cooperation with Miloš Stojaković from the Aguara artisan chocolate factory in Belgrade, will show how Traminer and chocolate combine fantastically and that every Traminer deserves its own chocolate, while the greatest Sarajevo chef and great culinary from neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina, Nihad Mameledžija, at a gala dinner to show how different types of Traminer can easily be paired with Bosnian cuisine specialties such as small veal kebabs, Herzegovinian lamb and Livno cheese, tufahija and tulumbi or keški and bulgure ”, announces Garmaz. After several months of stagnation due to the coronavirus pandemic, the tourist offer is getting richer day by day. The Traminer Festival in Ilok will certainly contribute to this. The second edition of the festival will be held on June 26 and 27 in Principovac and in the Old Cellar of Ilok Cellars, and according to the organizers, it will bring together about 70 wineries from Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Slovenia, Austria, France and Italy. Đorđe Bikicki “We are happy that already in its second edition, the Traminer Festival is establishing itself as one of the world’s leading wine festivals celebrating this great variety.”, emphasizes Željko Garmaz, who in cooperation with Vinko Ručević signs the organization of the Festival. Therefore, it is not surprising that all the capacities of Ilok and its surroundings have been filled for the second edition of the Traminer Festival, which is an indicator of how all the potentials of the destination can be used. The organizers plan to bring several buses with visitors from Osijek to Ilok for the second day of the Festival, because there is no lack of interest in the Traminer Festival. But let’s go back to the Traminer Festival, which this year boasts top guests, who could be envied by wine festivals with a much longer and longer tradition. At the second edition of the Festival, their arrival was confirmed by: Michel Ginglinger from Alsace, Otmar Šturm from Metlika, Đorđe Bikicki from Fruška gora, a great Alsatian with an English address Eric Zwiebel MS, who will hold a big masterclass on the best Alsatian Traminers with ten different grand cruises, The Traminers of the Austrian prodigy Michael Gross will be presented, and Bruno Gaberšek, a great wine connoisseur from Slovenia, will delve deep into the archives of the Ptuj winery. And just such an event once again confirms Ilok as a top wine destination. Although Traminac originates from South Tyrol, it was thanks to Ilok that he reached the English royal court. The tradition began at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth, in 1953, when Traminer from Ilok was even the official wine at that festival. The Traminer-court relationship later continued at the wedding of Prince William and Duchess Kate, as well as at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Mehgan Markle in May 2018. During Prince Charles’ visit to Croatia, the President of the Republic of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar Kitarović, presented him with a Traminer from 1947, a 68-year-old wine kept in the ideal conditions of the Old Cellar from 1450, which is the oldest wine cellar in Europe. built precisely for the purpose of storing and aging wine. The Ilok cellars sent a shipment of the best Traminers to London in 2013 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne. Today, Ilok Traminer can also be called “royal wine”. Ante Miličević from Kutjevo will personally present his experiences with Traminer, which a few days ago, in the selection of members of the wine association Vinum from Zadar, was named the best Croatian predicate wine, and Dominik Jagunić will show why his latest macerated Traminer is a miracle! At one of the workshops, Iločki podrumi will present one of the most intriguing Traminers from its rich archive, and according to the organizers, visitors will talk about this experience for years. Restrictions that still apply in some countries from which guests come, cause problems in the organization, but according to Garmaz, despite the coronavirus, no participant has so far canceled their participation in the Festival.

The only solution is to ban assault rifles

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe mass shootings using assault rifles (ARs) continue. The mass shootings in Connecticut, Florida, Texas, Nevada and California have resulted in 190 deaths and many more wounded. All are equally tragic. In 1994, a law was enacted that prohibited the manufacture of ARs for civilian use, but it allowed manufacture for law enforcement agencies. Unfortunately, this law expired in 2004 and there was no effort by Congress to extend it. Thereafter, AR manufacturing surged. In 2012, in response to the Sandy Hook shooting of children and their teachers, a bill entitled The Assault Weapons Ban similar to the 1994 law was introduced. The NRA condemned this bill and the Senate rejected it by a vote of 60-40. So now there are as many as 15 million civilian-owned ARs, and the number continues to grow.Certainly, a law like that proposed in 2012 should be enacted. But what should be done about the 15 million already manufactured and sold?To think that mental health expansion, which is worthwhile, will solve the problem alone is naive. This is because it would be impossible to find, evaluate, treat and monitor all those of the 15 million that might be thinking of using their ARs to kill. And, as we have seen in the past, the tracking of those individuals who are known to pose a threat is prone to human error. The only solution to this horrific problem is to ban ARs from our civilian population. People’s lives are at stake. Congress must act.Dale BrownNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more

No need to mention police chief’s salary

first_imgRe April 24 article, “Community raises money for police chief and family” by reporter Andrew Beam: The article described local community efforts to raise money for Scotia Police Chief Peter Frisoni and his family (wife and five children) after a devastating fire destroyed their home on April 6. It was nice to see this article, which publicized how much money had already been raised and ways for individuals in the community to donate funds to help the Frisoni family replace their home and their personal belongings. However, I was appalled to see that Mr. Beam felt the need to mention in the article how much money the police chief currently earns in salary at the village of Scotia and how much money he currently earns through a retirement pension from the Schenectady Police Department. Was Beam trying to suggest that the Frisoni family didn’t need the money?  I’m an active member of one of the volunteer fire departments that responded to the fire and although I was out of town and couldn’t respond that day, I’ve seen the effects of many house fires in my 27 years with the fire department. It’s a family’s worst nightmare. No amount of money can replace many of the personal belongings and memories associated with one’s home, especially with five children involved. The Gazette should be ashamed of itself and offer the Frisoni family a public apology. Please consider donating funds for the Frisoni family through “The Chief’s Account” at the First National Bank of Scotia.K.
