Advent in Zagreb
Davor Rostuhar

Visit Zagreb during the Advent and find out why the Croatian capital bore the title of the best Christmas destination in Europe in 2016.

Feel the scent of sweet pastries during a morning walk and explore a number of offers while preparing for the Christmas magic that begins at sunset. The Christmas spirit permeates the city streets.

Visit the Christmas market at Cvjetni trg (Flower square), listen to costumed musicians in the famous Zagreb's  „Oktogon“ passage, try the traditional mulled wine, sausages, sweet fritters at Ban Jelačić Square (main square) or say a prayer in front of the Cathedral where a real little Bethlehem  with a live nativity scene awaits you. Take a stroll along the European square and enjoy the evening music programs, Fool around in Tomićeva street near the funicular, dance to Christmas classics next to fairy tale pavilions in Zrinjevac or slide into a magical Ice park on Tomislav square. Let the Christmas energy of the town consume you.

For a complete experience of Christmas Zagreb, our Youth Hostel Zagreb - located in the vicinity of all the Christmas joy - prepared a special bed & breakfast offer for a magical price of 100,00 HRK (13,50 EUR) per person.

If that is not enough magical, we can organize a „Christmas story in Čazma“ (Salaj family) sightseeing tour, where you will be welcomed by millions of Christmas lights of different shapes and motifs.

We guarantee you will return home full of impressions, hardly waiting for another Christmas to come.

See you soon for the wine and fritters!
