Although Christmas has passed, cities all over Croatia continue to don their holiday gear for another week or so. While most Advent programmes typically last through the first week of the year, come January 1st, they somehow just don’t feel the same anymore.
That being said, the next few days leading up to New Year’s Eve are a perfect opportunity to enjoy the festive atmosphere in town while the lights and decorations are still up.
Don’t fancy mingling with crowds (or getting off the couch) these days? We get you – thankfully, there’s a way to stroll around town without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
