Advent in Zagreb has seen Croatia’s capital go from strength to strength in terms of tourism over the last few years.
Attracting visitors from all over the world and gaining the title of the Best European Advent Destination for three years running, Advent in Zagreb isn’t messing around when it comes to turning the city into a winter wonderland to get you ready for the most wonderful time of the year. Scrooge or not, it’s hard to resist Zagreb at this time of year.
As 24sata writes on the 3rd of November, 2018, Zagreb’s tourist board has its fingers crossed that this year will also be a great one, with the aim of attracting a record number of arrivals and overnight stays.
This year, the much loved Advent in Zagreb will begin on December the 1st, and as Martina Bienenfeld, the director of the Zagreb Tourist Board told RTL, the christmas spirit and cheer is spreading out over the city much more, and advent will also take to some new locations across the capital.
Advent in Zagreb’s organisers are already claiming that this year will be the most beautiful to date, and things have already got started.
There are already decorations being readily put up along the streets of Zagreb, given the fact that, as previously mentioned, this year things kick off as early as December the 1st with a little warm up taking place just a few days earlier.
As Bienenfeld stated, Advent in Zagreb will take to some brand new locations in the city, and owing to that some of the locations people have frequented in the past few years will naturally be overlooked, therefore they will be shut down.
To briefly recall Advent in Zagreb’s incredible rise to fame and recognition, Zagreb’s advent has been proclaimed to be the most beautiful in Europe for three years running and continues to attract very high numbers to Croatia’s previously very much overlooked capital city. The Christmas spirit will stay in the capital in the form of advent for five weeks.
