This summer, the International Fireworks Festival will decorate the sky over Zagreb. 

In pyrotechnic circles, the Fireworks Festival, which will be held at Zagreb’s Bundek Lake this year, has been internationally recognized and, believe it or not, already has waiting lists for teams hoping to participate. The Fireworks Festival has turned into a great tourist product and is followed by an incredible number of citizens and tourists. Every year, the festival attracts more than 30,000 people, reports HRTurizam on June 15, 2018. 

One of the most celebrated events this year has prepared enchanting light-explosions and surprises, which will surely delight an audience of all ages. The event will take place on the shore of the Sava at Bundek Lake, where, from June 29 to July 1, 2018, the best and most demanding world-recognized pyrotechnics will come together to light the Zagreb sky with thousands of illuminations. 

This year, the festival will be held for the 18th time, and the 17 festivals so far have featured renowned fireworks performers from numerous countries including Germany, China, Austria, Poland, Finland, Estonia, Czech Republic, Russia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Philippines etc. This time, the festival will present the three top teams with an impressive world rating. These are the companies that have already won many international festivals, including Bolshoy Prazdnik, the Russian painters of the sky, Fire Event from Austria, famous for their fascinating choreography, and HC Pyrotechnics – Belgium, who were already introduced to the Zagreb audience 4 years ago and are known as true artists that combine the traditional baroque with the touch of modern technology.


The fireworks will dance in harmony with the music, and what’s really interesting is all three teams will have the same theme for the first two minutes – a Zagreb song. Each of the three teams will present their art with a spectacular 10-minute fireworks display. 

The host, Mirnovec Pirotehnika, has already had an enviable career, boasting fireworks shows all over the world (Montreal-Canada, Berlin-Germany, Moscow-Russia, Kaliningrad-Russia, Macau-China, Pohang-Korea, Hanover-Germany, Warsaw-Poland, Courchevel -France, Rome-Italy, Muscat-Oman, Valeta-Malta, Vilnius-Lithuania). They are also engaged in the Enrique Iglesias tour and are currently working on his concerts in Lisbon and Copenhagen.
