The Advent spirit will bring to life the HDLU where the exhibition Nikola Tesla – Mind from the future is set, and you will be able to experience the real warmth of Christmas in the Parish of St. Blaža where the exhibition of the same name is held. There are also traditional programs such as: Living Christmas Nativity Scene, From the Christmas Balconies in Zagreb, special programs in MUO, HNK, Mimara, Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum, and, of course, the Advent program on Ban Jelačić Square, Advent wreath in Bogovićeva, Gajeva and surrounding streets and the Gift with a Story project as part of the Super Christmas program.By the way, Advent in Zagreb is the most important event in our capital, and last year there was an increase of 34% in arrivals and 37% in overnight stays.
