An even bigger and more beautiful Advent in Zagreb
Christmas fairy tale began,
this year, even more special and more interesting than ever!
Be prepared for the most attractive winter event in the capital of Croatia from 1 December 2018 to 6 January 2019.
Once again! Once again, Zagreb was declared the best Christmas European destination!
What does the capital of Croatia have, that makes it stand out from other Central European cities at the time of Advent and Christmas? Zagreb has a true soul of the holiday atmosphere, this large city lives this glittery Christmas fairy tale, a city where in December the winter is no longer cold, but warm and colourful, and the fairy-tale Christmas idyll becomes a reality. For six years in a row, this event has become the traditional little Christmas paradise in which fantasy and reality come together and fairy dreams travel through all our senses into reality. Watch, listen, smell, taste, participate ... engage in events, have fun, enjoy, and in one word, experience advent to the fullest, or wake up some old and forgotten brilliant and magical feelings within you. All of this can be done in a city that in December becomes enchanted by the spirit of Christmas. Advent in Zagreb has a soul, wins the heart of the people from Zagreb, as well as those of the visitors.
What awaits us in the many squares and streets of the Croatian capital?
Even more than a true holiday atmosphere, more than the smell of mulled wine or mulled gin, the smell of sausage, gingerbread cookies, fritule and other sweet and good vibrations on our palate. Advent in Zagreb is more than that, it is an abundance of manifestations, events, pleasant surprises, cultural and musical performances, and this year is even richer and more interesting than in previous years! Never bigger and better! This colorful Adventures oasis is full of concerts, workshops, cultural events, movie projections, as well as excellent gastronomic offerings. Contentful entertainment in the heart of the city for all those looking for a colorful holiday filled with experiences, colors, sounds, smells and flavors.
Along with the already spectacular large ice rink, the Ice Park in Tomislavac, and the market in the squares, this year's advent also has several new events and locations
Advent in Maksimir, where the whole family will be engaged in cooperation with the Zoo;
Advent of Old Tkalča (Stara Tkalča) which will bring a display of traditional crafts.
The third is the Film Advent that takes place in the passage of Sisters Baković (Prolaz sestara Baković) and Europe Cinema (Kino Europa).
A special and new experience this year will be an unforgettable new adventure for the youngest and the not so young ones: daily Santa Claus Landing accompanied by the deer from the far North to the wonderful advent Plateau of Gradec.
There are also a well-known Cheerful Christmas tram and a tourist train for a thorough exploration of Zagreb's winter fairy tale in a beautiful Christmas mood.
Apart from the traditional as well as new advent venues, advent events and concerts will be held in museums, concert halls, theatres, churches, the cathedral of Zagreb and we will also enjoy the advent from the Christmas balconies of Zagreb.
