Zagreb set to have first hotel for deaf people in Europe

The Croatian capital Zagreb is backing a plan to open what they claim will be Europe's first hotel designed for deaf people - and run entirely by deaf staff. Zagreb mayor Milan Bandic, 58, said he had decided to back the initiative by the local association for deaf people in Croatia, Svijet tisine (World of Silence). The association are still searching for the best location for such a hotel that will also employ deaf people as personnel, daily newspaper Vecernji List reports.
