The Zagreb-based organisation Plavi Telefon unveiled a new tourist map for people with disabilities. More specifically, it outlined a route that will allow wheelchair users and tourists with mobility impairments to tour the Croatian capital more easily.
Titled ‘Blue Line’, the tourist map features 12 landmarks in the city centre. Taking this further, it depicts the wheelchair-accessible routes in the capital as well as recommended directions.
The 12 tourist attractions listed in the ‘Blue Line’ map are:
- Ban Jelačić Square
- Zrinjevac Park
- King Tomislav Square
- Botanical garden
- Croatian National Theatre
- Petar Preradović Square
- Lotrščak Tower
- St Mark’s Square
- Stone Gate
- Dolac market
The creation of this map took many months of effort and planning, with the organisation seeking the support of the Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation, the CeDePe association and the Zagreb Tourist Board.
On its website, the latter has published the Blue Line map in digital format, allowing tourists to download or print it on their own. Alternatively, they can also pick up a free copy of the map from any of the information centres of the Zagreb Tourist Board.
