ZAGREB, 2 August 2019 – 100 Citroën 2CVs have gathered on the main square of the Croatian capital. The cars will remain there until Friday afternoon.
Over 3,000 Citroën 2CVs from all over the world converge on Samobor this week for the 23rd 2CV World Meeting. The 2CV World Meeting is the biggest gathering of drivers and lovers of the legendary Citroën 2CV car, known locally as the ‘Spaček’.
More than 12,000 participants from over 30 countries are in Croatia, including lovers of the two-cylinder car from as far as Australia and Ivory Coast.
The 100 cars on Ban Jelacic square are a symbol to mark the celebration of the first 100 years of Citroen.
The 2CV World Meeting, which ends in Samobor on 4 August, has been selected among the TOP 30 events in Croatia in 2019 and is supported by the Croatian Tourist Board.
The event is organised by the Croatian 2CV Citroën Club, headquartered in Samobor, which for 20 years has gathered drivers of the popular Spaček, but also the dyane, mehari and other favorite Citroën vehicles. The club is a member of ACI (Amicale International Citroën), the international association of Citroën clubs in the world based in Paris.
The meeting first took place in Finland in 1975 and is held every two years. At the end of the Samobor event the announcement of the host for the 25th 2CV World Meeting will be made.
