These are the dark days before Christmas and we are all looking for warmth, comfort food and the company of friends and family. A visit on the Christmas market during the Advent days in Zagreb are the solution! Go to the website of Zagreb Advent for the very extensive advent program for 2017 – click on the Croatian flag on the upper right for more languages like English, German, Italian and Spanish.
The whole centre of the city is decorated in Christmas style, with a large skating ring, music, x-mas stalls with food items, drinks, presents, beautiful lighting and also outside the centre there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a day out in X-mas style. Like a trip to the Villa Prekrižje, this villa has been closed for decades to the public and is used by the president of Croatia for official functions, but exclusively for this Christmas period it had been opened to the public so this is the time to visit. But also do not forget a visit to the Zoo of Zagreb, the Nikola Tesla museum where the start is of a world exhibition tour that will visit among others towns Paris, New York and Dubai.
Not just in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, but every town in the country has it’s own smaller or larger advent Christmas market, with food, Christmas stalls and music. So also in the cold and dark month of December you can go on holiday to Croatia and enjoy special moments in this special country!
