A new private museum, Zagreb 34, has been opened in the old building at 80 Radićeva Street, which takes visitors back to the golden age of the 80s.The ZAGREB Museum in the 80’s was created to experience the past in a new way. Its space is a reconstruction of the everyday life of the Zagreb family, in a unique and interactive way that intersects the past and the future, shows the way of life, heritage, memories and emotions. As the owners point out, “De ja vu” in a new way.There are also board games from that time, an old gramophone and records, a kitchen from the 80s equipped with original utensils from that time, a study with a typewriter, a bedroom with a women’s editing corner, a playroom with children’s games and toys… U through culinary books, visitors can get acquainted with the favorite recipes of Zagreb housewives. Fashion lovers can dive into the world of creations of that time. The Commodore 500 gaming computer, a collection of postage stamps, an album with badges, popular board games such as basketball and football and toys from Mehanotehnika stand out from more than 64 items, while the Museum Souvenir Shop offers unique retro souvenirs for customers of research spirit.”We have been open since mid-December, and the reactions of visitors are excellent, everyone is satisfied, both domestic and foreign visitors. The whole story about the museum is very simple and we were guided to show what Zagreb looked like in the 80’s, from the music, the way of life, fashion and the whole atmosphere of that time. Interaction is very important to us, so we conceptualize the museum so that everything can be touched and used, which is very interesting and different for visitors than in other museums where exhibits are not allowed to be touched.”Points out Anastasija Knežević, one of the founders of the Zagreb 80 Museum, and adds that she invites travel agencies and tourist guides to cooperate because foreigners have a very interesting past from the time of Yugoslavia.Also, the special feature of the Museum is that it encourages its visitors to touch, feel and interact with the exhibition, to reminisce about moments, smells and feel nostalgia. The young generation is given the opportunity to experience the way of life in the recent, positive past, so known and appreciated around the world in the 80s. “Experience the past of the great things we use every day today, such as video games, personal computers and mobile phones, as well as other significant facilities that really began their rise in the 1980s. ” stand out from the Museum of Zagreb 80.Croatia – a country with “a thousand” museumsPhoto: Batana EcomuseumThe Museum of Illusions, the Museum of Broken Relationships, the Museum of Torture, etc.… proved that there is a great need for private thematic museums that tell our authentic or thematic stories, and which certainly generate quality content that we miss so much.It is important to point out that the Zagreb Museum 80, like the other mentioned museums, is a private investment and that with their quality work they have shown how all museums should operate, especially state-owned museums that have much more resources. This is where the difference between private and state museums, which have a secure way of financing, have no imperative to earn money or how many visitors visit them, is best seen, while private museums are companies struggling in the market to survive and certainly care about every visitor and every kuna. . Yes, and in this equation it should certainly be mentioned that private “museums” have a VAT of 25% like everyone else, while State museums do not. Also, unfortunately most importantly, museums under the auspices of the State (honor exceptions) do not work on promoting and popularizing culture and their exhibits, and often do not even work on weekends, which is absurd because they have to work on weekends for tourists and domestic visitors.It would be great if, in addition to building a swimming pool, we encourage the opening of private thematic museums, primarily authentic, because they enrich the Croatian tourist offer and I sincerely hope that their success in Croatia will be an incentive to open more and more specialized museums in Croatia. for everything.Our biggest tourist advantage is our incredible diversity and authenticity. And the motive of the trip is to get to know new ways and cultures of living. I wonder, why don’t we have hundreds of private museums for all our amazing tourist, historical, cultural, authentic… stories?We have to tell our authentic stories and be proud of them, museums give added value, offer quality content and tell thousands of stories about our history, culture, heritage, innovation, identity. The motive for the arrival is not accommodation, but diverse, quality and authentic content of the tourist destination. Croatia with a thousand museums sounds great, doesn’t it?Related news:THE FIRST MUSEUM OF OLIVE GROWING IN CROATIA “MUSEUM OLEI HISTRIAE” OPENED IN PULAMUSEUM OF ILLUSION THROUGH THE FRANCHISE MODEL EXPANDS TO LJUBLJANA AND VIENNA OLDTIMER CROSS SECTION OPENED IN KRAPINAZAGORKA’S MUSEUM OF THE GRIČKA WITCH WAS PRESENTED ART PARK – ABANDONED PARK IN ZAGREB BECOMES A UNIQUE OPEN MUSEUM

It also sets up a first round playoff series against Thompson Rivers University that will begin on home ice Friday.”Finishing in first place was an objective of ours from the beginning of the season, so we’re glad to have met that goal,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”It didn’t come easy; we basically had to go the last six weeks without any margin for error. But we have a group that takes a lot of pride in their ability to come through in big moments, and we saw that again tonight.”Colin Minardi opened the scoring for Selkirk midway through the first period when we took a pass off the rush from linemate Darnell Dyck and fired a shot over the glove of Spartans’ goaltender Silas Matthys. The score remained 1-0 for the hosts well into the second period when TWU captain Brad Bakken blasted a point shot through traffic and past Saints starter Chris Hurry just after the expiration of a Spartans power-play. But it took little time for Selkirk to reply, as Mason Spear tucked a shot just under the crossbar from in tight to give his team a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes. The Saints had a number of chances to score an insurance goal in the third but were foiled repeatedly by Matthys. And that lack of finish came back to bite Selkirk later in the frame, as Spartans blueliner Blair Murphy broke in down the left wing and beat Hurry with a wrist shot high to the glove to tie the game. The remaining 13 minutes of regulation solved nothing, but the single point was enough to ensure a first place finish for Selkirk. “At the same time you have to tip your cap to Matthys, who was tremendous, and to their whole group,” Dubois said of the TWU netminder.”TWU competes hard and plays the game the right way. Barret Kropf and his staff have really turned that program around this season and it’s been impressive to see.” TWU’s goaltender made 48 saves in the loss while Hurry stopped 18 shots and picked up his team-record 14th win for Selkirk. The Saints will open the 2014 BCIHL playoffs on Friday night when TRU visits Castlegar for the first time since October.All games in the best-of-three series will be played in Castlegar.The full schedule can be found at www.GoSaints.ca.

JOCKEY QUOTES TAMMY HUGHES GUSTAVSON, DAUGHTER OF WINNING OWNER B. WAYNE HUGHES: “My dad has a cold or he would’ve been here. He’s here in L.A., but wasn’t feeling well enough to come. My husband and I left the S.C. game (USC football game) to come out today. We’re looking forward to the Breeders’ Cup Sprint with this horse. We’ll be here and there’ll be a lot of people from the farm (Spendthrift) as well.” FLAVIEN PRAT, LORD NELSON, WINNER: “I was a little worried about All Run pulling away from us and at the three-eighths pole, I didn’t look like the winner. I think my horse is better going further. But when he switched leads he just took off and we really started running.” NOTES: The winning owner is B. Wayne Hughes of Lexington, Ky., who races as Spendthrift Farm. MARTIN GARCIA, ALL RUN, SECOND: “When a race like this is at six furlongs, you just keep it simple.. With these kinds of horses, you need to just let it go unless the horse doesn’t break. My horse likes to run on the front end and I had to get after him a little bit early because my position was number one, and he kept running. I just got beat by a better horse.”TRAINER QUOTES BOB BAFFERT, LORD NELSON, WINNER AND JAZZY TIMES, THIRD: “I was surprised Jazzy (Times) didn’t hang in there a little more, so I was disappointed, because on hot days like this, speed really holds well. (Flavien) Prat rode him (Lord Nelson) like he normally does. He’s got a big turn of foot. The one horse (All Run) though, he was running pretty easily.”Addressing the Breeders’ Cup Sprint Nov. 5: “There’s always a lot of speed in that race. You’ve got Masochistic, and you’ve got Drefong (trained by Baffert). He’s pretty fast, too. He worked well today. To win the Sprint you have to be doing really well, be at the top of your game. Post position is so important, the break is important. The Sprint is a difficult race to win, but if you have the right kind of horse you can do it, and so far, Lord Nelson looks like the right kind of horse. He likes this track and he hasn’t lost this year.”
Benfica lost the Europa league final 4-2 on penalties against SevillaSports fans are by nature a superstitious lot and are no strangers to their clubs being “cursed.”It took the Boston Red Sox 86 years to break the Curse of the Bambino, while for the Chicago Cubs, it’s 104 years and counting. So in the annals of great sporting hoodoos, Portuguese football club Benfica has a way to go.However, after eight defeats in European finals since 1962, it becomes harder to deny that the club’s Bela Guttman curse lives on.The Portuguese club was arguably the better side over the 120 minutes of Wednesday’s Europa League final, but ultimately lost 4-2 to Sevilla on penalties after the match ended goalless.It is the second successive year that Benfica players have had to console themselves with runner-up medals, after losing to Chelsea in the final of the same competition last season.”The players fought but they lacked a bit of luck again,” Benfica captain Luisao said. “Once again, in a final, the ball just didn’t go in.”Benfica coach Jorge Jesus and several of the players laughed off talk of the infamous curse in the buildup to the final, but it has now been 52 years since coach Guttman stormed out and the club has failed in every single one of its subsequent European title clashes.Known as the Jose Mourinho of his era, Guttman had just led Benfica to back-to-back European Cup victories and the Portuguese club looked set to rule the international stage for years to come.However, shortly after steering his side to victory over Real Madrid in 1962, Guttman quit when his request for a pay rise was turned down.On leaving he allegedly cursed the club, declaring “not in a hundred years from now will Benfica ever be European champion.”And so far it hasn’t.It has lost to AC Milan (twice), Inter Milan, Manchester United and PSV Eindhoven in the European Cup and Anderlecht, Chelsea and now Benfica in the Europa League or UEFA Cup as it was formerly known.The last European Cup final it was involved in was held in Vienna, where Guttman is buried, and legend Eusebio even went to the grave of his former manager to pray for the curse to be lifted.It had little effect and Benfica remains jinxed.Jesus bullishly said in the pre-match press conference that he didn’t believe in any sort of hoodoo, adding: “most of the players don’t even know about these statistics. It’s folklore.”However, after once again bemoaning his team’s poor luck in a final and saying “the best team did not win the Europa League,” Jesus may be rethinking his opinion on the curse.Benfica fans will be consoling themselves that there only 48 years to go.
