Christmas in Zagreb

By: Zdenko Kahlina

I thought you would like to see few pictures of my home town Zagreb, at Christmas time. The main square, streets, shops… everything is decorated throughout the holiday season.



Zagreb saw decorations and lighting going up ahead of the Christmas and New Year’s festivities. An advent wreathe and a manger made of cubes were set up on the main Ban Jelacic Square alongside a Christmas tree. The tree that adorns Zagreb’s main square – a 18-metre spruce – is believed to be one of the most beautiful Christmas trees so far.


Advent in the Heart of the City is a traditional happening which leads up to Christmas. 


In the very Zagreb city center, at Ban Jelačić Square, various musical events and performances bring the spirit of Advent and Christmas to the citizens of Zagreb and their guests. 


Throughout the entire month of December, those who find themselves in the main square will be entertained by various cultural and artistic groups, children’s choirs, dance groups, concerts, arts and traditional crafts workshops, all under the watchful eye of Father Christmas.





Zagreb officially kicks off its festive season with the lighting of the first Advent candle at Manduševac Well. As this year’s program is indeed varied and rich, it is extremely difficult to single out any particular event, but you can be sure there will be a lot of concerts and entertainment for every age and interest.
