Bjelolasica Olympic Centre reopened after renovation


The renovated Olympic Centre in Croatia's biggest ski resort of Bjelolasica, some 130 kilometres southwest of Zagreb, opened for the winter season on Wednesday.

By the end of the week, a big tent with a kitchen, a restaurant and a cocktail lounge will be put on the site of the main building of the Olympic Centre which burned down in a fire in January this year, for some 200 guests who will arrive for the New Year holidays, Ivica Prevolsek, manager of Club Adriatic company, said at the opening ceremony.

Club Adriatic, a state-owned company which operates the Olympic Centre, in September started preparing the centre for the winter season.

The renovated centre will be officially opened in January, Prevolsek said.

Next year, construction work will begin on a new, four-star hotel which will have close to 50 rooms, a multipurpose congress hall, a wellness centre, a swimming pool, gyms and other amenities, said Prevolsek. (Hina)
