From 5 December to 18 January King Tomislav Square, which is located in front of the railway station in downtown Zagreb, will be transformed for the first time into a gigantic outdoor ice skating rink, making it a paradise for ice skating fans of all ages. The rink is part of Advent in Zagreb and organisers say it was inspired by Vienna Ice Dream – the large rink in front of Vienna’s City Hall Square (Rathausplatz).

“Entry to the skating rink will be 20 kuna, whilst you will be able to rent skates for 10 kuna,” said Zagreb Tourist Board Director Martina Bienenfeld.

The 1,940 square-meter surface will offer ice skaters of all styles and ages the chance to do their thing from 10 am to 11 pm every day to a range of music. The rink will be surrounded by various outdoor stalls and offering culinary delicacies, as well as warm drinks and the traditional mulled wine.
