The arrival of the Bethlehem lights is an excellent initiative throughout the Republic of Croatia. This unique experience of communion will be felt through the burning of the Bethlehem lights on December 17, 2017, in the Church of the Miraculous Lady of Sinj.

For the duration of Advent in Sinj, at Alojzija Stepinca Promenade, there will be richly equipped Christmas homes with pastries, mulled wine and an overwhelming offer of local gastronomy for these colder winter days. There will also be houses with handicrafts and gifts for our youngest visitors. The Day of Sv. Nikola will be held on December 6, 2017, and Santa Claus will be the best gift to the children on December 23, 2017.
