Ways to Celebrate Christmas in Zagreb

By Viator, July 2017

No reviews, be the first!

As the holiday season kicks off in Croatia, Zagreb sets the celebratory scene with colorful, lit-up landmarks, elaborate window displays, and ornate Christmas trees adorning its city center.

The heart of the festivities is in Ban Jelacic Square, where a traditional Christmas market serves up mugs of kuhano vino (mulled wine) and unique, hand-crafted decorations, like ribbon-wrapped wreaths made to resemble the Croatian flag. Take in the holiday atmosphere with a go around the open-air ice rink or a photo in front of the square's dazzling Christmas tree, decked in candles, paper lanterns, and licitar (baked dough hearts)—or explore other parts of the city on a guided Christmas lights tour of Zagreb.

For those dreaming of a white Christmas, consider taking a day trip to the Plitvice Lakes National Park, where you can hit the slopes at Velika or Platak, or sink into the steamy Varazdin hot springs, amid a natural, Croatian winter wonderland.
