The official name of the event is Advent in Osijek. The change of the name happened in 2017, because the City had to find a new location for the event. The cause of the change of location was lack of money, so in 2017. the event was held on the main square of the City. This year (2018) the event was moved again, to a park in Osijek. It seems that from now on the location of the event will be changing every year.
Other than the political and monetary shenanigans the event is really interesting. It’s all about the real Chistmas spirit, a bunch of people enjoying themselves under the open sky, sipping on mulled wine or hot chocolate while listening to some nice (live) Christmas music. There are also different events like wood chopping competitions and other fun things. There are also booths with delicious food from the city, so don’t miss that!
This event is ideal for getting out of the house with your family. If you want to see an idyllic Christmas village scene, this is the perfect place for that!
