Advent in Zagreb Video Guide
Personally, I think one of the best times to enjoy any capital city around Europe is during the winter. The cozy cafes, warm clothing and hot wine around Christmas time is the best way to get into the spirit!
There are so many areas throughout the city to visit, so I would say at the least you could spend a long weekend in the city to explore. Also, depending when you go, check for concerts and special entertainment taking place as well.
Where is it? Zagreb is in continental Croatia and a great launching point to all other parts of the country.
How to get here? Direct flights are available from mostly all European cities.
Best combined with? Since Advent is in the winter, I would suggest traveling east to visit Eastern Croatia or Istria.
Ashley’s favorite thing to do here: I enjoy eating the sausages and drinking the hot wine, the food is excellent around the city. Also, don’t forget to try fritule (like little donut holes).
