Meet us at Zagreb main Ban Jelacic square and enjoy discovering Christmas holiday market. Stall by stall. We scouted myriad of food stalls in order to give you full perspective on Croatian traditional Christmas/New Year family meals. We'll visit 4 micro-locations of Food markets scattered around Zagreb downtown, where you will taste 4 different treats. For sure you're not hungry after touring with us!
Christmas Market in Zagreb has its own charm and uniqueness. It follows the tradition of bigger brothers in Vienna, Budapest, Prague and rest of Central Europe, but there’s one big difference. Whereas other big Central European cities share more or less same cultural and gastronomic heritage, Croatia (Zagreb) as centuries old ‘border country’, offers blend of East-meets-West, with pinch of Mediterranean culture/cuisine.We’ll start our food tour walk from main square in Zagreb (Ban Jelacic square), exploring market stalls full of festive fare. As Zagreb Christmas market is scattered around several micro-locations, it takes 2 days to explore all corners of food stalls, hand-made stuff, craft beer points, mulled wine vendors etc. And still, you could miss some exceptionally good food, if you don’t have previous Croatian cuisine insights. So, we did ‘scouting’ job for you, and we’ll guide you to ‘the best places in town’, in slow-paced manner. During 3.5-4 hours we would visit micro-food markets at Main Ban Jelacic square, Strossmayer promenade, Zrinjevac square and European square. Also, we’ll walk through Tunnel ‘light magic’, which will be decorated in Christmas holiday spirit.While we hang out there, you’ll try local treats like: sauerkraut, sausages, smoked meat, sweet treats, mulled wine… well, we can’t show you all our cards, we would like to surprise you, too.
