From fans of classic Advent and the magical world of fairy tales, to hardened rockers and refined gourmands, everyone will enjoy the Advent magic in the southern Slavonian Brod Posavina County.
The winter idyll of Brod-Posavina County, towns and places along the Sava has always inspired many, from the poet Dragutin Tadijanović at the beginning of the last century, to contemporary artists. While for the “locals” life along the river and the snow-covered plain is something they have always remembered, in recent years this area has become a winter fairytale for more and more visitors from other parts of Croatia and beyond.
How did Nova Gradiška park turn into a centre of adventures?
You will enjoy a walk through the beautiful city park with a glass of mulled wine or some delicious delicacy. Yes, yes, this holiday season in Nova Gradiška, an excellent gastronomic offer awaits you in the houses next to the fountain. Skating on the open ice stage of the city park, concerts of bands and DJs on Fridays and Saturdays, music auditoriums on Sundays, family programs, creative workshops and the most anticipated classic: December 19 welcome Santa Claus with gifts… – a true Advent idyll for all generations.
Advent from the past an hour and a half from Zagreb
It is inspired by the works of the famous children’s writer Ivana Brlić Mažuranić, who lived in Slavonski Brod. The attractive Brod Advent from the past has long been awarded at the London Festival of Innovation in the Creative Industries. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the fairy tales that generations have grown up with – and at the time of year when fairy tales are the best fit.
Inside the ramparts of the magnificent naval fortress is a special atmosphere. Where the old border guards once practiced, this winter visitors will find a large ice rink under the stars. Concerts, a rich Christmas fair are some reasons to visit the town on the Sava, and if you have kids, don’t miss the traditional gift giving on December 15th. A special experience.
Family Advent in Garčin
You will enjoy a fully covered Advent space with colourful stalls, great Slavonian specialties, socialising, entertainment and great concerts. Already this Saturday in Garčin, a concert by the band Tamburaši Arteški bunar awaits you, on December 11 a concert by Opće opasnosti, and on December 18 Crvena jabuka. Welcome St. Nicholas and Santa Claus with the kids, and in case you are not a fan of the “classic” Advent, Brod-Posavina County offers a different experience.
“Known for its idyllic rural households, estates and ranches, Posavina in Slavonia hides some of the best continental locations, ideal for organising unforgettable holiday gatherings or New Year’s Eve,” said Ruzica Vidaković, director of the Brod-Posavina County Tourist Board.
