The Croatian capital has taken the title for two years in a row, can it do it again?

Once an entirely overlooked part of Croatia as far as tourism is concerned, Zagreb has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years as more and more tourists are drawn away from the Adriatic coast to discover Croatia’s continental gems – the capital city being one of them.

For two years in a row, Zagreb has successfully turned itself into a winter wonderland and has deservedly been declared the most beautiful advent destination in Europe, with special regard to its incredible Christmas market. The capital of Croatia is now chasing the very same title for the third year running, and this year it is in competition with 24 cities who claim to also deserve that same more than flattering title.

Advent in Zagreb’s program is set to last forty days, encompassing more than 300 rich and varied events, much like numerous other Croatian cities, Advent in Zagreb officially kicked off today with the burning of the first Advent Candle at Manduševac at 19:50. 

Instead of running through every festive event that we have to look forward to this year, click here to view the full program, and here to read our full guide on what to do and where to go.

If you feel that the up and coming Croatian capital deserves to take the prestigious Christmas crown for the third year running, you can cast your vote for Zagreb until December the 11th, 2017 on the European Best Destinations website. Make sure Zagreb gets your vote by clicking here!
