3 things to do in Zagreb in winter

Back to all

In winter, Zagreb becomes a truly magical city. Plenty of contents, good food and different sporting activities will delight every visitor and fill them with a true holiday feeling. We would like to recommend you some of the most popular winter activities to do in Zagreb.

Advent in Zagreb

Just like every year, the smell of mulled wine, gingerbread and the sounds of Christmas songs await us at the magical Zagreb Advent. Advent will take place from 30/11/2019 to 07/01/2020, with plenty of events, as well as different music programs, good food and mulled wine. Interesting surprises await you at every turn in downtown Zagreb: the Ice Park, Zrinjevac, Fuliranje, the European Square, Advent on Stross and Maksimir turn into a true Christmas fairy tale. Be sure to visit this magical event and enjoy!

Ice Skating downtown

During the Advent period, a large skating rink is set up in Zagreb's King Tomislav Square. It is possible to skate at any time of the day, but we would still like to recommend you to visit the skating rink in the evening, when a special Christmas atmosphere is all around. Remember to treat yourself to some mulled wine and fritule donuts after ice skating!

Skiing on Sljeme

During your visit, be sure to set aside a day for skiing on Sljeme overlooking Zagreb, only a 20-minute drive from the city center. Relax on the hilltop and, in addition to skiing or sledding, enjoy true homemade food. However, if you cannot fit the trip to the mountain in your schedule for the day, night skiing is organized every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm, which we are sure you'll enjoy.

We hope you manage to set aside some time for at least some of the different contents Zagreb has to offer during the magical winter period.
