Advent in Zagreb Has Begun! Spectacular Ice Opening (VIDEO)

By 1 December 2018

December 1, 2018 - Advent in Zagreb 2018/9 has begun in spectacular style, with an ice show to remember. Check out the videos from the opening night.

And so begins one of Croatia's most prominent tourism success stories once again - Advent in Zagreb has begun!

Voted the best Christmas market in Europe three years in a row, Zagreb in December has been transformed in recent years with the success of its Advent offer, so much so that other towns are also catching on, and Croatia today has a rich and varied Advent programme, which was well summarised recently on Croatia Feeds

While many were surprised when Advent in Zagreb was voted Best Christmas Market in Europe three years ago, much has been done to improve and expand the offer, and this year's Advent in Zagreb is one more step forward for an event which attracted hundreds of thousands of tourists last year. 

Some great footage of the opening night from our colleagues at, with the early Advent focus on the central parks between the main train station and Ban Jelacic Square. Check out the wonderful ice skating opening in the videos below.
