61 citizens who lost homes in Zagreb quake move to hostel
ZAGREB, Sept 12 (Hina) - Sixty-one Zagreb residents who were accommodated in the Cvjetno Naselje student dorm since losing their homes in the March 22 earthquake moved to the Arena hostel on Saturday, Mayor Milan Bandic's office said in a press release.
They have been accommodated in 30 rooms and have at their disposal socialising and recreation areas as well as three free meals a day.
The hostel has provided accommodation for 241 citizens who were staying at Cvjetno Naselje since the quake. Those who moved today were mainly families with their own cars, for which they have free parking at the hostel.
Others will be transferred on Monday on city buses.
The city was ordered by the government on Friday to provide accommodation at the Arena hostel for citizens accommodated in the student dorm since the earthquake.
Fridges have been bought and placed in their rooms at the mayor's order, following their request, and school transport has been organised for their children.
