The Croatian capital has made Daily Mail’s list of the 15 most exciting Christmas markets in the world.
Zagreb, which won the title of best European Christmas markets by travellers the last three years, has made the list of 15 of the most exciting winter wonderlands according to the popular UK newspaper.
Zagreb has been included on the list with the likes of Chicago (USA), Stockholm (Sweden), Lucerne (Switzerland), Salzburg (Austria) and Leipzig in Germany.
“There are annual awards for Christmas markets and Zagreb grabbed first place last year. Croatia’s hipster capital has a large student population and offers festive value. Ban Josip Jelacic Square and European Square are two of the main spots at which to gather and Zrinjevac Park blends local food specialities with live music performances, “ writes the Daily Mail, who advised readers not to miss “baked strukle – a warm pastry dish with soft cheese”.
A magical atmosphere around the city of Zagreb will start with the Christmas lights being turned which will signal the start of Advent in Zagreb this year on 1 December.
