It is open to the public, at the HPD “Zagreb-Matica”'s house, a photography exhibition that recalls some of the WTOC 2015's finest moments. The opening took place last night and was a pretext for meeting many members of the World Championships' organizing team, revisiting a precious time of communion and joy.

The headquarters of the Croatian Mountaineering Society Planinarsko Hrvatsko Društvo "Zagreb-Matica" hosted, yesterday's early evening, a singular event. Meeting the memories, the places and the people who made the World Trail Orienteering Championships WTOC 2015, held in Zagreb and Karlovac last month of June, took place the opening of a collective exhibition authored by the photographers Branka Dimić, Senke Jurkovic Gros, Mladen Fliss and Čedomil Gros, complemented by a Velimir Brezar's video. The opening words were given by Anton Bikic, President of HPD “Zagreb-Matica” and exhibition's host. Čedomil Gros, main organizer of this event and Damir Gobec, Director of WTOC 2015 also uttered welcome words. Zdenko Horjan and Ivana Gobec, respectively Planner and Mapmaker of WTOC 2015, the athletes Iva Lovrec, Ivica Bertol and Tomislav Varnica, and even names related to the organization, such as Sanja Zuzic or Boško Opalić, were some of the many personalities presented at the event.

“We all thought that everything was worth showing, but we also wanted a little bit of gathering together again”, Ivana Gobec said to the Portuguese Orienteering Blog about the purpose of the event. Ivana still leaves some impressions: “The photos were very selected, and very few, by photographers' own choice, and it was a little surprise for us too”. Still a note to the fact that, during the cocktail reception, followed to the opening ceremony, having be displayed on a large screen a set of images from other photographers, many of which with the signature of Joaquim Margarido and the Portuguese Orienteering Blog. The exhibition will be open to the public during the month of November and it is expected that, after that, could be presented in other places.
