It really is the most wonderful time of the year… For the people in Zagreb it can’t come soon enough. The whole city center is already decorated for one of the most important events of the Croatian capital.

Advent in Zagreb (from December 1st to January 6th) was awarded as the best Christmas market for three years in a row now. The award came from the site ‘Best European Destinations’ which asked travelers to vote for their favorite Christmas celebrations in Europe.

Here’s what the site had to say about Advent in Zagreb last year: “The capital of Croatia is for sure the best destination to celebrate Christmas in Europe. During this time of year the magic is everywhere in Zagreb. (…) The city streets and squares invite you to let your hair down and partake in singing, dancing, and other kinds of entertainment with family and friends. You can also sample traditional delicacies alfresco or enjoy themed programmes which take you down memory lane.” (Click here for the complete article!)

This year, like every year up until now, the Market is growing again, with new activities and new programs being created to celebrate the holiday. The motto of this year’s Advent is “Save the best… for December” and it really feels that way. Just look at this rich programs on the official Advent in Zagreb site. With a little bit of snow, it will be a real Christmas fairy tale…
