Virtual museum from Zagreb windows

first_imgThe Zagreb Tourist Board (TZGZ) has launched a campaign “From Zagreb’s windows ” on the Facebook page in the period from April 6 to 19, and invited fellow citizens to send their photos of Zagreb neighborhoods taken from their own balconies, windows and terraces.  The goal of the campaign was to record what Zagreb’s neighborhoods look like when the people of Zagreb “open” the doors of their living rooms.

The first concert from the roof of the tourist bus this year was performed by Damir Urban in Rijeka, and now in the same way the Zagreb Tourist Board is organizing a concert of the Filmmusicorkestar group which will take place tomorrow (April 28.04) starting at 17.00. Filmmusicorkestar concert from the roof of a tourist bus As a result of the completed campaign, TZGZ has created a virtual museum on its LoveZagreb blog, which consists of more than 300 photos from almost all districts of Zagreb. The bus will depart from the Square of the Victims of Fascism, and will pass through the city center, more precisely through the green wave to Svačić Square. Then, after performing some of the greatest hits by Gabi Novak and Arsen Dedić, he will continue his journey to Španski and Mamutica, where he will perform melodies from the films Who Sings Evil Doesn’t Think, Only Kiss Once or Tell Why He Leaves Me. “The response was great and we are glad that, in the two weeks of the campaign, we collected a lot of interesting and beautiful photos. We managed to motivate our fellow citizens to find something beautiful in everything that has happened to us in the past month and a half and to show us their “view” of Zagreb. Equally, we hope that we have encouraged all those who have not yet visited us to include Zagreb on their travel list.”, Say the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb.  From the roof of the tourist bus, a popular double-decker, the concert will be performed by the Filmmusicorkestar group, and the repertoire will include a set of the most beautiful and timeless Zagreb melodies from the movie screen.last_img read more

Hopefully I will get to play in Mumbai again: Haseeb Hameed to India Today

first_imgWearing a loose white shirt covering his broken hand and thin frame, Haseeb Hameed looks every bit the 19-year-old he is. Not in his cricket whites, you could pass him off as a high school boy, far from being the new young find of English cricket. (India is a happy hunting ground for overseas batsmen: Ganguly to India Today)In any case few manage to play Test cricket at his age but the first three Tests of his international career are enough to suggest he is here to stay. But for the injury, after his heroics in Mohali, Hameed could possibly have crafted another knock to remember in the Mumbai Test match with England batting first. It was not to be. (Mumbai Test: Ashwin dents England after Jennings’ debut ton)He still made it a point to come down to the city where he spent some time of his formative years to cheer the English team. He got to see a fellow youngster, Keaton Jennings fit into his shoes with a hundred on debut.

You obviously want to play and score. But it was very nice to see Keaton bat the way he did. It was very good to watch how he went about. Very pleasing. Great to watch him,” he told India Today in an exclusive chat. (Keaton Jennings 19th Englishman to slam hundred on Test debut)advertisementEven as he was walking back from the Wankhede stadium, past the BCCI headquarters, also in the premises, a handful of fans gathered around him to congratulate him for the super start to his career. By the time he was ready to speak to us, a much bigger crowd had gathered around him. Hameed did not fail in acknowledging this fact.”The support that I have seen from both sets of fans has been amazing. Something I am very grateful for and hopefully the next time I come with the team, I will be able to play in Mumbai where I spent a lot of time as a youngster and that will be a dream come true as well,” he says.For those who missed Hameed’s gritty 59 at Mohali where he batted with the broken finger as a lone ranger against the spinning ball, Hameed still became news to the Indian cricket fans after his one-on-one photograph with Virat Kohli after that Test went viral.In Cook, Hameed and now Jennings, England have found a top order with immense promise.The next time he comes to India wearing an England shirt and he will, we could inquire of how people of different decents, Indian, Pakistani, South African and English manage to gel in the same dressing room.For now he is happy spending some more time in India, be it as a spectator. “It was a dream debut in the home soil of my parents in Gujarat,” he spoke of his debut in Rajkot. “I will carry back great memories,” he signs off.last_img read more
