The weather can’t seem to make up its mind – sunny and up to 26° on Saturday and then rainy and 12° on Sunday. Nevertheless, there are lots of fun things to go to this weekend:

1) Australia at the Zagreb ZOO
Australian Embassy in Zagreb and Zagreb ZOO have partnered up to celebrate Australia Day together. Visit the ZOO on Saturday, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. to find out more about Australian food, customs, sports, gastronomy and see interesting Australian animals. There’s also going to be an educational trail for children to explore and, once they’ve visited all the spots, they will receive a small gift.

Despite its neglected urban infrastructure, Ilica represents a symbolic and recognizable topos of Zagreb.

Ilica Readymade Festival will be held at 5 locations in Ilica, May 5 – 12, 2017, and three different walks will be organized, one on Saturday, and two on Sunday.

4) Jane’s Walk

Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with neighbours. Cultural Centre Trešnjevka is in charge of this year’s Zagreb edition and there will be eight different walks in different parts of Zagreb.

5) Pinhole Day Workshop


A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens but with a tiny aperture, a pinhole. Light from a scene passes through the aperture and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box, which is known as the camera obscura effect.
At this workshop you’ll learn how to make a pinhole camera using a matchbox, it takes place on Sunday, and all you need to do is bring a photographic film and pay a 50-kuna fee.
