A rich program has been prepared for Advent in Varaždin this year as well

Every season in Varaždin has its own festival. The end of the year marks romantic Advent in Varaždin, in many ways different from other Advent festivals that have flooded Croatia in recent years.

Advent is located in Varaždin in the very heart of the historic city center, on the same streets and squares and in front of the same palace where Špancirfest is held at the end of summer. Varaždin Advent is lively, fun and diverse without big crowds and waiting in lines. Fun, lively, fragrant and intimate - just what Advent should be.

The diverse Advent programs will be divided into this year as well several thematic locations and wholes, while respecting all current epidemiological measures.

White Promenade

Varaždin's main square, the popular Korzo, is the heart of the city and so is the heart of Advent beauties. In a winter landscaped space, White Promenade will have diverse catering offer in eight cottages, there will drive Santa's train, and on Saturdays, in addition to everything, it will be played. Concert program will be opened by Vanna on November 27, followed by Dino Dvornik tribute band, Neno Belan & Fiumens and other performers, and in the morning on Saturdays choirs and vocal instrumental ensembles will perform.

In the immediate vicinity of Korzo there is a beautiful Varaždin Cathedral in front of which, with performances by choirs, light Advent candles on a large Advent wreath.

Advent on Stančić

The Advent magic on Miljenko Stančić Square traditionally continues this year as well rich catering offer, acoustic gigs on Sundays as well as novelties in the creative arrangement of the square itself.

Ice magic

A large ice rink and the already legendary ice slide they became symbols of Varaždin Advent. The ice magic, which in addition to these recreational winter joys includes an accompanying catering offer that will keep you warm after your stay on the ice, this year returns to the spacious Capuchin Square, where it all began. Fans of ice and ice fun on Kapucinski Square will find a large ice rink with ice rinks of as much as 1.100 square meters and a 40-meter-long ice slide of 120 square meters. Skating will be daily, and a skating school will be organized. Prices will be the same as in previous years - 15 kuna ticket and 15 kuna skate rental.

On Thursday, December 23, on Capuchin Square will six young academic artists make ice sculptures. From the ice blocks, they will shape ice instruments inspired by the location of the Music School in Varaždin. The organizer of the action is Rotary club Varaždin 1181.

Santa's house

For the avoidance of doubt, it is neither in Finland nor in the North Pole but in the beautiful Varaždin Gajeva Street. The magically decorated house, in addition to being, we are sure, a favorite place for photographing children, will also have an interesting program for which Santa Claus himself (head and beard) will be in charge.
