Halloween in Zagreb

Halloween is celebrated on the eve of the feast of All Saints, on October 31st. It is believed that the history of the celebration of the holiday season began more than 2000 years ago with the Celts in Ireland. They believed that on the night of October 31st, the distance between the living and the dead weakens and allows the spirits to come back to earth. Therefore, the ancient Celts costumed themselves and drove away evil spirits.

We offer you the chance to experience an unforgettable Halloween in Zagreb. We have arranged a visit to the Museum of Torture for you, where you can explore and try out different instruments of torture dating all the way from ancient to the present times.
