Advent, a highly anticipated period of celebration and abundance at the end of the year is one of the most recognizable symbols of Zagreb. It is a time to be enjoyed with family and friends in a special holiday atmosphere, when the city turns into a big bright stage created for winter gatherings in its streets, squares and parks.
The year 2020 has disrupted our usual plans and imposed some new rules, but it has not extinguished the spirit of Advent. On the contrary, Zagreb will shine with more decorations and romantic atmosphere than ever, and the famous locations in the city center will be adorned with creative festive installations. Advent is still here, and its light keeps us warm, spreading happiness and hope for a better future.
