To make the patrolling officers more visible and recognizable, the Zagreb Tourist Board has developed the special uniforms that will have on the front and back a city plan, and thereby further simplify getting around the city.
The Zagreb Tourist Board introduced in 2006 Zagreb’s patrolling tourist informants and the project is successfully implemented every year. The task of these informants is to provide information to visitors they meet on the streets of Zagreb. Ten tourist information officers in distinctive uniforms are patrolling the most frequent tourist routes in the city center every day from 9 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from 10 am to 6 pm. Through Zagreb center they patrol in pairs, with one information officer that has pointed out the letter “i” on the uniform, while the other has a city map. They provide information in the various languages of the world from April until the end of October.
In addition to the existing tourist information centers, information kiosk and a free info-phone, the introduction of the Zagreb’s patrolling tourist information officers has made Zagreb one of the first European cities that offers this kind of service.
