This year, the holiday season is different. Croatia's cities are usually overrun with locals and tourists eager to munch on traditional sausages, sip mulled wine - or rakija - and enjoy seasonal concerts.

Though the crowds are missing and events are canceled, Croatia's holiday and community spirit remains. Its cities are still lit up with festive lights and beautiful decorations, which lend an air of the usual holiday cheer to an unusual holiday season.

Enjoy this gallery showing Christmastime across Croatia - from a sun-drenched, holiday-decorated Dubrovnik to a stolen kiss in Zagreb's illuminated Zrinjevac Park.
