Central Zagreb food festival spans the world

This year, the World on a Plate festival returns with a celebration of food culture from all over. Zagreb's main square is set to host street food vendors and representing different communities – expect Thai, Japanese, Turkish, Russian and German street-food as the focus of the event. But, drawing the crowds and making this such a memorable experience is the accompanying cultural programme. This includes various styles of international music, with some singers and musicians in traditional folk costumes. Dancers taking part in the programme can be dressed quite spectacularly. There are educational talks and workshops too throughout the lively 11-day duration.
