Advent in Zagreb

It is said to be the best Advent destination in Europe in 2016. I don't know whether it is true or not, but in December Zagreb is definitely transformed into a fairyland. A fairyland of Christmas lights, Christmas trees, stands from which the smell of mulled wine, fritule (a kind of doughnuts) and other delicious fried food is spread, all complemented by cheerful melodies of Christmas songs. It is definitely a joyful time when people somehow feel happier, more alive, more enthusiastic to go out, meet friends and share happy moments.
