For the second year in row Advent in Zagreb won the title of ‘Best Christmas Market in Europe’. Christmas and New festivities had officially ended on 8 January, and over the past 6 weeks 120,000 tourists visited the capital during Advent.

According to the Zagreb Tourist Board, those tourists created 230,000 overnight stays, which is a 50% increase compared to the same period last year.
