With more than 100,000 plants across 300 thousand square meters, hundreds of exhibitors, exhibitions, street art and music, the largest horticultural exhibition in the region — Floraart — gets underway today at Lake Bundek in the Croatian capital Zagreb.
In compliance with all epidemiological measures, visitors can expect another attractive program this year at the 55th Floraart which is open from 1-6 June.
On display will be interesting street art mural created just for Floaart by artist Boris Bare, and also an exhibition of works by students and alumni of the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb.
”As part of this year’s Floraart, we also planted some unusual artistic plants in closed domes, which were designed and set up by ALU students in Zagreb with their imagination. This exhibition of works by our young artists reflects on our specific situation of closed system, but also on the creative potential of art to open and revive the quality of our lives,” said project mentor Danko Friščić, Vice Dean for International and Inter-university Cooperation, University of Zagreb, ALU.
Everyone who comes to Floraart will also enjoy a great music program on the pontoon stage every day at 7pm. Ricardo Luque, Saša Nestorović Jazz Quartet, Lela Kaplowitz Quartet, Soulbeat and Ivana Galić and ZP Quartet, are some names who will perform.
“We are extremely pleased to invite everyone to visit our exhibition, admission is traditionally free, and it is recommended that citizens park in the east parking lot of the Zagreb Fair. Safety and health are our first priority, so we remind you to respect all epidemiological measures,” organisers said.
Floraart is organised by Zagreb Holding – Zrinjevac branch, co-organisers are the City of Zagreb and the Zagreb Tourist Board.
