One of Croatia’s most famous Christmas lights displays is officially opened – a this year a record 2 million lights have been turned on.

It all started back in 2001 when the Salaj family started their Božićna Priča Christmas Tale – Salajland theme park when they decorated houses, trees and bridges over the ponds with an array of various Christmas lights.

The lights created a wonderful, fairytale ambiance, and have developed a large following with visitors coming from all over the country to see the display over the festive period.
