Winter is coming. And it’s a good thing you’re in Zagreb for it. The capital turns Christmas-crazy in December and there’s few places (other than Lapland, maybe) where you’ll find quite as much festive buzz than Zagreb. Decked out in little wooden- roofed stalls and miles of twinkly fairy lights, the sheer scale of the winter extravaganza can be overwhelming, but don’t worry – we’ve sorted out the festive treats from the Christmas turkeys in our Advent guide. Winter is all about staying cosy, so we’ve taken a look at what Zagreb has to offer behind closed doors, from cool bars to artisan shops and century-old patisseries. Need ideas for a rainy day? We’ve got a jam-packed guide of great things to do this season and more events than you can shake a candy cane at. Season's greetings and Sretan Božić!

Discover everything Zagreb has to offer this winter in our 98-page guide, packed with essential information and insider's knowledge. See the highlights below.
