Zagreb presents tourist map for wheelchair users

Blue Line will allow people with disabilities to explore the Croatian capital more easily

Earlier this month, 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.

How to access the city’s main attractions

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.

  8. Lotrščak Tower
  9. St Mark's Square
  10. Stone Gate

Where to find the map

According to Plavi Telefon, 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.

Speaking to local media, Blue Line’s Project Leader Miran Vučenović noted that the new tourist map will place Zagreb on the list of accessible European destinations. Expanding on this, other European cities have also begun to map out accessible routes, with the Greek capital unveiling 8 routes for tourists with motor and visual impairments in December 2021.

On Facebook, Plavi Telefon revealed that it is also currently developing a mobile application that will further facilitate exploring the Croatian city.
