Must see – Zagreb Advent 2017

Again, for the third year in a row, Zagreb has been chosen as the best advent place and given that I actually live here for most of the time in next few years I thought it was only right to check some places out and present you what the advent is all about.
I haven’t really been out every single day to see everything but some high points will be shown in both photographs and my commentary. I hope you like this post and consider checking Zagreb’s advent this year (for what is even left of it) or perhaps next year since it can only get better from here!


One of the most beautiful attractions (and one of the most photographed as well) is the Marićev prolaz that is decorated in such a way to look absolutely magical. It’s actually a passway (that’s what prolaz means in Croatian) that is decorated just in this time of the year (and correct me if I am wrong you who know better, I think this is the first year they did something like this for advent). The tiny lights on those branches make up such a romantic and wonderful place that the passway is usually packed with people so it is hard to take a nice photo. So if you want to do so, I advise you to go a bit earlier in the morning or later at night when most of the tourist groups aren’t around.


This is the famous park Zrinjevac in the center of Zagreb. Switching on the lights, that you can see in these photos, for the first time always signifies the beginning of Advent and it is an event a lot of people come to see. The park is usually, by itself, beautiful but for Advent, at night it becomes a place that you must visit just to see the magic of millions of lights around it.


Ice park on the King Tomislav Square is one of the most visited sites every advent. It really is magical and romantic to ice skate with the scenery surrounding you, especially at night when the lights go on. I have been there to skate 3 times and I wish I could have been every single day. The tickets aren’t that pricey but they do go away quickly for the closest session on weekends.

The part of the advent that happens in Upper Town Zagreb is also amazing. There you have some of the most photographed sites of the whole advent. Also in close proximity there 3 places you have to visit; Caffe de Matoš with cute benches and little cafes with photograph so well,  Stross which offers you a lot of gourmet choices and fun places to take photos as Rudolph, Santa and Grinch  and my favourite Klovićevi dvori (Klović palace) where you can eat about anything and see the whole city from up there while listening to good live concerts.

In the Strossmayer park which is between King Tomislav square and Zrinjevac there is also a lot of food place choices and some of the extra sightings like the HBO gift shop where you can buy literally anything related to GOT, LOTR or Harry Potter and you can also drink and eat stuff that is related to Harry Potter series. Next to that, you have a cute looking little circus where your youngest ones can have fun.


That will be all for this posts! I wish you all the best in the new year that is in front of us, and I hope you spent your holidays well.

15 things I learned in 2015

  1. Sharing your work with other people can be liberating and it can give you so much confidence.
  2. Everyone deserves to be happy, even me.
  3. People will talk behind your back and judge you no matter what.
  4. Living the truth is hard, but worth it.
  5. You will be disappointed by the people you love the most, but that doesn’t mean they don’t care.
  6. Sometimes optimism isn’t as annoying as I presumed it to be.
  7. Usually things don’t go the way you plan them to, but in the end everything works out.
  8. Face masks and makeup free days are so important for your skin.
  9. I don’t want to be defined by anything else than the word human.
  10. It is ok to relax and not care every once in a while.
  11. Write when inspiration strikes, and don’t force writing to the point you don’t enjoy it anymore.
  12. I should probably work on expressing my feelings.
  13. It is good to try new things.
  14. Perfection does not exist so don’t try to achieve it.
  15. Don’t do something because it’s someone else’s idea of normal.

That will be it for the first post in 2016, I wish you all a happy and successful new year!

New Year’s Resolutions

So, I have been doing New Year’s resolutions for a few years, but always on a paper I hid from everyone! Now I decided to make it public because I think that way I will be more dedicated to make them happen.

Here is my list:
1. Be as happy as you can. √
2. Visit at least two new countries. √
3. Keep you anxiety down. √
4. Enjoy in happiness and remember it! √
5. Try to over analyze less. (half a point for trying)
6. Be less pessimistic about things. √
7. Do something for yourself, you deserve to be a little bit selfish now and then. √
8. Don’t run away from love and commitment. √
9. Keep up with good work (school, blog, etc.) √
10.Try not to miss a Tuesday on your blog! (oops!)
11. Work with amazing companies and people!
12. Double your followers. √ (I at least think so)
13. Try to worry less. √
14. Be the best YOU you can be. √
15. Don’t forget you have people in your life that will love you no matter what. √
16. Never give up. √
