Zagreb and Eurobasket 2015

Hello everybody!

A few weeks ago, on September 10th to be exact, we went on a school trip to Zagreb, Croatia. I’ve never been to Zagreb before, but I was really excited to visit it, since my mother went to school there and she told me so many nice things about it.

We first went to The Dražen Petrović Memorial Center, which was a vision of Biserka and Jole Petrović, Dražen’s parents. Dražen Petrović was one of the best basketball players in eighties and one of the best Croatian athletes in general. I really enjoyed exploring this museum and it was an amazing feeling to see all of his trophies, old photos, first basketball, video about his life... We had the great honour to meet Dražen’s mother Biserka, who told us some words about Dražen’s life and his passion about basketball.

After visiting the museum, we then got the chance to wander around the city and our guide told us some interesting things about Zagreb and its sights. But we were all excited to see the basketball match between Slovenia and Macedonia, so we just couldn’t wait to finish our city tour.

Before the match we went to the big shopping center near Arena Zagreb and my friend and I wanted to visit every store we saw. But unfortunately we hadn’t got enough time and we had to go to Arena Zagreb. Our guide gave us Eurobasket T-shirts, so we were all able to support Slovenia basketball team. We were all screaming encouraging words to the players through the whole game and they did an amazing job. Slovenia won 62: 51 and we couldn’t be happier.

Unfortunately we had to go back to Slovenia, but the ride back home was anything else but boring. We talked about our day and the match and I really hope our professors will soon organize a similar trip.

I also really hope I’ll be able to visit Zagreb as soon as possible, because it’s a beautiful city, full of amazing sights and interesting people.



Love, Sara Wallflower
