Zagreb, the capital of Croatia! It’s definitely earned its title as capital city, as it has everything that anyone could ever want in one place: culture, arts, music, architecture and gastronomy! It’s no wonder the the amount of visitors over the last few years have gone through the roof! And don’t forget, you could be on your way there on the run-up to Christmas, and so you’ll also be able to experience the Christmas Markets! I’ve included some details below…
Your Zagreb Xmas Market Deal
In a country better known for summer holidays along its pristine coastline, Zagreb is promoting itself as a festive wonderland aiming to rival Europe’s traditional Christmas destinations such as Vienna and Prague, and we can definitely see why! With an ice sculpture festival, brass band fanfares and a huge skating rink, Zagreb is getting ready to welcome a huge number of tourists this year, so don’t miss out on the festivities! You’ll also be able to find themed walking tours, dozens of concerts and illuminated market stalls, where mulled wine, hearty sausages and cinnamon donuts are among the big hits. In December 2015, Zagreb won the title of ‘Best Christmas Market’ in a poll of over 100,000 people!
The traditional Christmas Fair will take place during Advent in the streets surrounding the Jelacic Square. Take your pick of seasonal gifts, gingerbread hearts, cookies, colorful decorations, jewelry and souvenirs made by Zagreb’s craftsmen, artists, and manufacturers of traditional Croatian products. The markets are going to be running from the 27th of November 2016 to the 8th of January 2017, so luckily for you, you’ll be in Zagreb at that time to see all that’s going on!
You’ll be staying in the 4* Rose and Margarets Apartments (4.5/5 on TripAdvisor), situated near the Museum of Broken Relationships, and the Lotrscak Tower, amongst other things! Don’t miss out on your chance to also go and visit the monuments and sights, even though you’re there for the Christmas Markets!

How to book:
I found this deal by combining a hotel and flights deal. You need to book the hotel and flights separately by following the links to the providers’ pages. I suggest that you open the hotel and flights deal at the same time in your browser to keep an eye on the live prices and I recommend that you book the flights first. Please feel free to amend the dates, airport or length of stay yourself to suit you. Please note that prices are subject to change quickly!
