    An escape from everyday life to the park with an alley of 220 plane trees is equally magical in all seasons. But it is only during the Advent season that these large boughs light up with a special glow and the old music pavilion becomes a haven for lovers of Christmas classics and waltzes. When you think of Christmas, do you think of your childhood and family gatherings around the Christmas tree, Christmas songs and the fragrance of your grandma's dishes? If you want to truly relive those happy memories, the Advent on Zrinjevac is the perfect place for you. Apart from enjoying unique Christmas ornaments and handmade souvenirs from selected local artisans, you will have the opportunity to revel in the traditional – almost forgotten – Zagreb specialties as well. Yes, we are talking here about the well-known krpice sa zeljem (pasta with cabbage), a staple of Zagreb cuisine. And don't worry, there'll be plenty of strudels as well. A Christmas fairy tale can commence!
