Advent festivals/Christmas markets are currently being held all across Croatia, with major holiday destinations including Zagreb (which was voted Europe's best Christmas market from 2016-2018, and third-best in 2019) Rijeka, Pula, and more. After being cancelled in 2020, markets are back in a scaled-down version in 2021 - but sparking the Christmas spirit nonetheless.

Whether you're able to visit in person (lucky you!) or are quenching your Croatian wanderlust virtually, we're bringing you a Croatian Christmas market gallery to foster the holiday mood. Enjoy these festive photos of Advent markets dazzling across Croatia!
