Enchanted Stories

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” The famous C. S. Lewis wrote the words that inspired Purgerica the storyteller to take you to the magical world of enchanted benches, in the most beautiful Zagreb parks, where the stories from our myths, legends and fairy tales are hidden. Lit by the old gas lamps and encouraged by the voices of young and old passers-by and listeners, the old spirits and unusual creatures awaken, gather around our benches and sit together with us. Just for one evening, through a word, a symbol or a hint, they bring back the spark of joy which appears in one’s eye when reading or listening to stories. From Turopolje to Sava, from Grič to Sljeme, written, spoken and recited stories wait for you, summoned from time long gone.

I was very looking forward to coming to Zagreb, especially because my mother travelled with me. My people found out everything about it, so that we could see the main stuff in the city!

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.

I am looking forward to Zagreb as a destination where I always feel good. It seems it has been too long since the last time I was here, although it was just a year or so.
