The Best Christmas Market in Europe

Hello world!

We were in Zagreb, visiting friends, family and the Best Christmas Market in Europe.

It was raining most of the time we were there so this will be short overview – let’s call it “our top 10 places to visit in Zagreb Advent”.

  1. Caffe de Matoš

    Caffe de Matoš is located on Strossmayer’s Promenade in Gornji Grad (Up town), with simple theme – love. So many special little “love” details can be found all around. Talk a walk with your “better half” and remember “What happens in Zagreb, stays in Zagreb” 🙂
  2. Marićev passage

    One more new part of Zagreb Christmas Market is “Marićev prolaz”. It is decorated with white twigs and twinkling lamps creating a magical fairy tale tunnel. It was still under construction when we were there, we are sure it is more magical now.
  3. Advent in Klovićevi

    The best view of the city is definitely Advent in Klovićevi dvori on the Gradec plateu. It offers gastro experience and free concerts; who doesn’t want those?
  4. Tesla – Mind from the future
    Zagreb Advent_DianoMaya-1166231In Meštrović Pavilion you can find amazing exhibition “Nikola Tesla – Mind from the Future”. It was a great hideout from rain, but also unique audio-visual  experience. Don’t miss: room with Tesla’s “brain-computer interface” device. That device changes color and sound, depending on your brain activity. Diano had green color (creativity & relaxation), I had red (full brain activity), what was yours?
  5. Tunnel Grič

    I promised I will find some fun facts about this tunnel, so here it goes…
    It was built in World War II to serve as bomb shelter. The tunnel was renovated and opened to the public in 2016, as a tourist attraction. During Advent in Zagreb it shows old Zagreb Up Town street, from Charles Dickens era. Honestly, it reminded us of Strasbourg (BLOG). You can enter Grič Tunnel from Mesnička, Ilica and Radićeva street.
  6. Fuliranje
    Zagreb Advent_DianoMaya-1166037This is a name of a popular Advent gathering, which moved this year to Strossmayer square. We were very hungry once we got there, so we dived into innovative food it offer. Diano tried “street sarma” (stuffed rolled cabbage leaves in bread), I got “fritula” (basically apple pie with pudding). Of course, we poured mulled wine on top of all 🙂
  7. Zrinjevac park
    Zagreb Advent_DianoMaya-1166047Zrinjevac is one more place to stop by for food and drink, but also handcrafts and souvenirs.
  8. Main square Market
    Zagreb Advent_DianoMaya-1166066
    In front of Johann Franck club, every year, they set up another Advent place where you can find food & drinks. Main square offers entertainment program for children during the day and free concerts for evening program. Behind Johann Franck building you will walk into Advent on Europski square, which is much smaller this year.
  9. Tomislavac Ice park
    Zagreb Advent_DianoMaya-1155949The Ice Park on King Tomislav square is apparently the biggest ice rink in this part of Europe. Definitely wish we had more time and better weather to try it!
  10. Advent na Strossu
