December 2015  

Dear citizens and guests of Zagreb!
The month of December is filled with joyous feelings of Advent. The lighting of the first Advent candle in Ban Josip Jelačić Square at the end of November marked the beginning of the festive Yuletide season. Advent in Zagreb is a traditional event aimed at creating the most enchanting build-up to Christmas and conjuring up the beauty and joy of Christmas itself with its impressive programme of happenings. During the time of Advent, many of the city’s streets and squares offer delicacies to be enjoyed alfresco or themed programmes which will take you down memory lane.
