"This year, we are starting with a new concept of Advent, which was developed in cooperation with the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb and the Maksimir Public Institution, and which we believe will further stimulate creativity and good ideas in designing Advent activities and events. The most important step forward is the transparent way of selecting bidders through tenders, and the emphasis was placed on the quality and quantity of the planned cultural, musical and entertainment content and the arrangement of the locations. This resulted in a diverse cultural offer for all age groups, different food offering concepts, a large offer of domestic products and many other interesting things. and the skating rink on Tomislavac, but with less green space, in order to reconcile both the profession and the wishes of our fellow citizens. We also took care to make Advent ecologically sustainable: usedisposable, biodegradable packaging will be used and waste separation points will be set up", said during the presentation of Advent 2022, the mayor of the City of Zagreb, Tomislav Tomasevic.
