Children's Hospital Project Finally Begins in Blato, Zagreb

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 13th of April, 2019, the national children's hospital project is now finally entering a much more serious phase, and the Croatian Ministry of Health and the City of Zagreb, which are partners on this strategic project, will finally present it to the public in full, according to a report from Vecernji list, citing an international public bid to draw up a feasibility study for the huge project in Blato, Zagreb.

The feasibility study is necessary for this project because it will properly specify the requirements of the architecture, the urban planning, the ecological impact, the traffic situation, and all of the other parameters which need to be carefully considered and constructed, and one of the feasibility study elements would be the preparation of medical documentation.

Fifteen of the major international bidders are expected to report their segment-based studies, each within its own respective scope, and therefore a comprehensive study will ultimately define just what will go where, and where exactly to begin with construction. The start of work on feasibility studies from the project's partners, the Croatian Ministry of Health and the City of Zagreb, will be presented on this coming Monday, as was confirmed to Večernji list by Vili Beroš from the Ministry of Health.

"We received 42 million kuna from the Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014 - 2020 project, which is now a European project, and its initial presentation is common within such projects," explained Beroš.

The announcement of this tender was preceded by an electronic public consultation with all interested parties.

The core of Croatia's brand new national children's hospital would be the current Zagreb Children's Hospital, Klaićeva.

Zagreb County Best Wines Review Coming on 25 March

Zagreb County is inviting all interested winemakers from its area whose wines are sold in bottles to apply and take part in the 2nd edition of the review of the best wines of the Zagreb County, which will be held on March 25 at the Westin Hotel in Zagreb, reports on March 4, 2019.

This is an opportunity for the best winemakers from the county to gather in one place and present themselves to wine experts, caterers, hoteliers, tourist officials and wine fans with their high-quality wines and thus promote the "Zagreb Green Ring" as an exceptional wine-growing region.

Zagreb County, as the organiser of the 2nd best wines review, will provide the exhibition space with tables, tablecloths and chairs, glasses, water and pouring pots to all those who sign up.

In addition to tasting top quality wines and their pairing with local cheeses produced at the Zagreb Region Cheese Road, as well as with the meat products, which are both brands of Zagreb County, all visitors of the review will be able to participate in topical workshops and guided wine tastings.

To apply for this unique wine event, winemakers should fill in the application form published on the official website of the Zagreb County.

Last year, the 1st edition of the review brought together wines with a protected designation of origin produced by some 30 winemakers from nine wine areas of Zagreb County. Visitors had an opportunity to taste more than 150 international and autochthonous wine varieties and several types of high-quality cheeses made by producers from the county.

With its five million vines, planted on more than 900 hectares, Zagreb County is at the very top of Croatia by the number of winemakers, wine labels, wine roads, and winemaking and wine projects in general. Some of the most successful projects are the county brands – such as the Kraljevina Zelina and the Portugizac Pleševica, as well as the wine promotion project with the Wine Queen which have been continuously crowned in the County since 2003.
