December 11, 2022 - Zagreb's Mirogoj cemetery is one of the most beautiful and fascinating destinations in the Croatian capital, and there is only one date to see it in all its glory - November 1, All Saints Day, as TCN's CROMADS partners joined Secret Zagreb's Iva Silla on a tour. The impressions of visiting a tourist attraction or destination can very much depend on the time of year and several other factors.

Advent in Zagreb 2022: Global Promotion, Global Media Hit

December 11, 2022 - December in Zagreb is busy like never before, as are the international column inches writing about this year's Advent in Zagreb 2022.  Of all the Croatian tourism events that I have followed over the last decade writing for TCN and Google News, none has impressed me as much as the story of Advent in Zagreb. From extremely humble beginnings on Ban Jelacic Square with just a few stalls, it was rebranded as Advent in Zagreb in 2010. Just six years later, in 2016, Advent in Zagreb was named the Best Christmas Market in Europe, a title…

Zagreb, a City of 4 Seasons: the Colours of Autumn Buzzg

December 5, 2022 - The Croatian capital is a city of four seasons, with the Autumn Buzzg an underrated time of the year to visit.  One of the big differences between living on a Dalmatian island and the city of Zagreb - at least in my experience - is the number of seasons. A little like the Jadrolinija ferry timetable, life in Dalmatia seems to be just two these days - summer and winter - and largely tied to the season. Half the year open and busy, the rest of the year quiet and mostly closed.  One of the many…

Discover the Croatian Danube: SOM (Catfish) on Our Way to Šarengrad

December 3, 2022 – Having passed through Vukovar, the Croatian Danube continues its journey east toward Ilok. We reach the slopes of Fruška Gora, which is positioned just above the picturesque little villages, helping the river frame them. When my family moved back to Vukovar in 1999, there was not a lot to do. Shops and playrooms weren’t really a thing, and my brother and I (4 and 6) spent most of our time outside. Hanging around the Danube in the summer, making snowmen in the winter. Year after year. From time to time, we would get into the car…

Where Luxury Collides: Wanda Radetti Meets Hotel Ambasador in Split

December 2, 2022 - When two luxury tourism pioneers collide, as Tasteful Croatian Journeys founder Wanda Radetti meets Hotel Ambasador, the first luxury waterfront 5-star hotel in central Split. It was quite an evening.  It only takes a few good people, those with vision and a pioneering spirit, whose efforts, dedication and passion can truly bring change.  I was reflecting this as a sipped on an excellent glass of Babic after the main course of deer rumpsteak, Roman gnochhi roll with cranberry cooked in Port wine, Jerusalem artichoke cream, butter glazed Brussel sprouts, and demiglace. Opposite me was a lady I had…
