18 March 2019 – Ireland’s national day, St. Patrick’s Day, was marked yesterday on 17 March by a number of cities around Croatia.

A number of famous world landmarks once again turned green to celebrate Ireland’s national day, including New York’s Empire State Building, the Colosseum in Rome, Nelson’s Column in London and Sydney’s Opera House. 

A number of Croatian cities joined in the festivities by going green, including the 16th-century Sponza Palace in Dubrovnik, Sveti Donat Church in Zadar, Zagreb and Split fountains, Pula’s cranes and the Croatian artists association building in Zagreb.

More than 400 global landmarks turned green this year as part of Tourism Ireland’s ‘Global Greening’ initiative.
