The most wonderful time of the year is approaching again, the time of year when the whole city turns into a Christmas wonderland. Over the past few years, Caffe Bar Finjak in Zagreb has been a fairytale place.
The Christmas fairytale at Finjak has shone in a new guise this year.
– Behind us is a very strange and difficult year that has brought many challenges, but at the same time made us stronger, closer and aware of the value of life’s precious moments. So this year, Finjak will completely cheer us up and enchanted us with its fairy tale story, says Finjak’s owner.
This year’s story takes place outdoors in a magical backyard where nutcrackers, mulled wine, delightful chocolates all meet. This year, the nutcrackers were handmade and tables were carefully designed by Finjak’s owner and young sculptor, Denis Svirać.
On Finjak’s terrace this year, you will have the opportunity to meet four completely new Nutcracker characters who are dedicated to the city of Zagreb and to get through the repercussions of the virus pandemic and earthquake that struck the city earlier this year as easily as possible. The team from Finjak named their four new tenants Dragec, Alemka, Milan and Siniša.
– Dragec is a hardworking chimney sweeper who takes care that you are always warm and those bad days get better when you rub his button, Alemka is a caring doctor who takes care of everyone and makes sure you wear your mask, Milan is there to keep order in the city, as he has for the last 20 years, and while our cheerful Siniša is careful, he will try not to ignite the atmosphere too much, Svirać says.
Just like in previous years, this year Eventastic studio with its Finjakovci has designed something completely new for guests so that this year the Finjak coffee bar will serve its favourite Advent drinks in cups made of 100% recycled paper and are 100% safe. They are adorned with the smile of four Nutcrackers who will toast you each time.
– Our hard-working team has designed a mulled wine that you can buy in a limited edition in a decorative 0.5l bottle with a specially designed retro label.
As Finjak informs us, this year they moved their Advent to the yard so that the ambiance can be enjoyed whilst socially distancing with good music, the finest mulled wine, great company, cheerful Nutcrackers and the finest hot chocolate in the city.
– Please socially distance, wear masks, dress well, bring a good mood, and hurry to Vlaška 78 to this magical holiday destination that you do not want to miss. Together, let’s create memories that will paint this 2020 in slightly brighter and happier colours. Just don’t forget to bring along some family and friends and don’t forget to tag @CaffeBarFinjak in all your holiday snaps together. We look forward to your arrival and would like to wish everyone safe and happy holidays, all the best in the new year too.” Svirać concludes.
