There are some great happenings to warm you up in Zagreb this month. Zagreb's Film Festival is a world-class event: this year's edition focuses on European cinema, with heaps of indie screenings, Q&A's with actors and directors, as well as short films and workshops to get involved with. Music is similarly high-profile with boutique festivals Reflektor and Žedno uho coaxing a crop of great indie talent to the capital: Mark Lanegan, Fujiya & Miyagi and Fleet Foxes top the bill. Two very different musical legends stop off in Zagreb this month: Canadian dad-rock superstar Bryan Adams plays the Arena, while hip-hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash puts on an audio-visual show at the Garden Brewery. Advent kicks off at the end of the month, mustering a level of yuletide-mania to rival Prague, Vienna, and Munich. Get your month off to a good start by reading our list of amazing things to do in Zagreb this November.

Grič tunnel is transformed into a multimedia exhibition space, a 'time machine' that traverses thirteen decades of Croatian history, championing the greats of science, literature, art and sports with written commentary in English. The stand-out feature is the 'rain-room' a holographic installation with historic personalities seen through a trickling light cascade.
A multimedia exhibition celebrating the giant of Croatian science Nikola Tesla, 'Mind from the Future' walks a tight-rope between art, film and technology. A collaborative effort between the Croatian Association of Artists and author-artist-curator extraordinaire Helena Bulaja Madunić, the exhibition casts an eye over Nikola Tesla in a hyper-visual journey full of light-shows, interactive installations and film screenings.
