From March 16th to 19th (yesterday), Zagreb was the host of the Festival of light for the first time. After the Advent in Zagreb which changed the face of the city for a short period of time, it’s that time of the year when the city is preparing for the weather change. The topic of the Festival of light was Spring.
On January 27th, I visited six museums within the event called Night of museums. There were 230 museums, galleries, etc. around Croatia, which joined this cool manifestation, but I had time for only five or six, and I went for six. My choices were: Memorial apartment of Marija Juric Zagorka (very known writer and journalist from Zagreb), Archaeological Museum, HAZU (Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts), HT museum with the exhibition Mobile revolution 1991-2016, Technical Museum Nikola Tesla and the Confucius Institute at the University of Zagreb with the exhibition about the Chinese rock’n’roll and alternative music.
On Saturday I went to the most famous, and biggest, fountains in Zagreb to photograph an amazing event Christmas light of wishes, and I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
Last weekend, with a huge ceremony in the center of Zagreb, Advent in Zagreb finally started! At first, I was at the King Tomislav square, just next to the main railway station, where the ice skating area, called Ice Park, was opened. The rain was messing with me, but at least it wasn’t pouring!
