There are plenty of opportunities to buy local gifts and try specialities like strudel and strukli, but it is the other events that make Zagreb so magical. The main stalls are located on Ban Jelačić Square, but there is so much besides this central area. The ice park hosts a giant skating rink, every tree in Zrinjevac Park is lit up beautifully, young people flock to the trendy European Square for live movies and music, there’s a chance to let your hair down with food and dancing at ‘fooling around’ street parties on Tomićeva and Kurelčeva, a multimedia 3D fairy tale is told through the Advent Tunnel, and the music of Johann Strauss fills the Oktogon.
