Extending a Hand in Friendship with Sister Organisations
Our last trip was to Zagreb in September 2018 at the invitation of IWCZ to share in their 25th anniversary celebrations.
The five members who made the exchange were warmly welcomed and had a great deal of fun. The programme was well-organized and conceived to show off the best and most unique aspects of Zagreb and its environs.
We hiked in the Plitvice National Forest, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, enjoying its beautiful azure lakes and waterfalls; we had a city tour; travelled to Samobor, a town nearby, and had local wine, digestif and mustard tastings — and an excellent late lunch and watched the creation of handcrafted crystal at one of the last small workshops left in the region.
We attended the monthly general meeting and there was a programme of traditional folk singers and a music school’s guitar group, playing classical, traditional folk and world music – excellent.
