Each year in December, the Ljubljana’s Festive Fair becomes the center of the city’s social life. The Festive Fair, set up in the immediate vicinity of a major open-air venue for festive events held daily throughout December, is well known for its vibrancy and cheerful atmosphere. Festively decorated green stalls, designed specially for the fair, sell a fine choice of products suitable for giving as gifts.
For many years now, the Festive Fair, with its countless food and drink stalls offering mulled wine, tea, liqueurs, sausages and various grilled dishes, has been considered to be a major venue for what the locals refer to as “the merry December in Ljubljana Old Town” and see as a perfect opportunity to bump into friends and acquaintances whom they may not have seen for a while.
The Croatian capital, Zagreb, in 2015 and 2016. beat the likes of London, Vienna, Berlin, Stockholm, Strasbourg, Brussels, Manchester and Nürnberg to be voted the ‘Best European Christmas Market’ by travelers on portal European Best Destinations. The central stages, featuring a diverse musical program, will be in Zagreb’s main square of Ban Josip Jelačić and the nearby Zrinjevac Park. During all December, Zagreb’s most beautiful park will also feature dance events, while traditional delicacies as well as original gifts and local souvenirs typical of Zagreb will be on sale at numerous stands aligning the park promenade. The traditional Christmas Fair will take place during Advent in the streets surrounding the Jelačić Square.. All the visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the somewhat-forgotten specialties of Zagreb, warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine, or buy unique souvenirs and Christmas decorations for their loved ones.
Be a part of it on those Christmas markets 2017!
