So this year, there will be special programs designed specifically for them to enjoy, to make them smile and to share with them the excitement over Christmas presents and cakes and to remind the slightly older ones how beautiful it is to be a child.
Advent for children
Who is more excited about Christmas than the little ones? They know how to cherish its joy and magic, they still believe in Santa Claus and are eager to share their enthusiasm for the Christmas magic with everyone.
Advent in Mala scena theater
The play “A Snow Fairy Tale” at the Mala Scena Theater does not begin after you take your seats, but by entering the atrium, where children and parents will enjoy real Christmas magic with festive games, a chocolate making workshop, and the chance to write a letter to Santa Claus, so that they can contribute to the show and let their creativity run wild.
Advent in Zagreb Zoo: Croatian Tales of Long Ago
This fairy tale collection by Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić, with its fantastic characters, beautiful landscapes and Croatian flora and fauna, has shaped childhoods of many generations, so it comes as no surprise that it was chosen as the theme for this year's Advent in the Zoo.
Museum of Chocolate
Times are changing and so are the children's habits. Still, throughout the 20th century, one special hobby shaped many childhoods and many generations of children: collecting album stickers.
Live Nativity Scene
For over twenty years, the Cenacolo Community has organized an authentic Christmas spectacle in the very heart of the city: a live Nativity scene, conceived and performed by them, along with the help of local families and children, to whom this show has always been very dear.
Backo mini express – Train Museum
Anyone who has ever visited Zagreb during Advent can agree that the city is truly magical at this time of year. And it was made smaller by a very special spell and placed in the form of miniatures in the Backo Mini Express!
Workshops of the Croatian School Museum
As we know, children enjoy Christmas the most. To make this time even more special for them, the Croatian School Museum organizes two workshops for all elementary school students.
Advent in Lisinski for the youngest
A rich program for the youngest in the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall will contribute to the festive atmosphere in Zagreb.
Old movies for children preserve timeless values for all generations and spread the warmth needed during this Christmas season, so this Advent, you will hear children’s voices from the classics such as Train in the Snow, Pero Knobble’s Gang and Smogovci echoing through the corridors of the Passage of the Zagreb Crafts Chamber.
Merry Christmas Tram
A magical ride with Santa and his crew, filled with fun, laughter and special presents, is sure to amuse everyone, especially the little ones.
Advent for children in MiniPolis
Advent for children in MiniPolis is dedicated to those who believe the most in the magic of Christmas – the children.
St. Nicholas' Town
Christmas decorations found only in fairy tales, a handful of creative holiday workshop ideas and an entertainment program made by famous children's performers await children and their parents again this year in the largest entertainment center Amazinga in Zagreb.
