With just a short time away from the kick off for Advent in Osijek there is much work going on behind the scene to make it successful. Advent this year will be held in square Ante Starčevića with much anticipation.
The white huts are getting set up for Christmas village located in front of theatre close to the other restaurants in this district. Lots of groundwork as one of the attractions will be an Ice rink located in the middle of it all. There are still many things underway as the construction has just started in the main square Ante Starčevića.
With past few years, Advent in Osijek has gained much attention as many busloads of tourists have returned year after year for the great experience. There is plenty of Live Music to choose from during the celebration with each band having a different style that will fit any music fan. Do not forget the incredible food from this region to enjoy to share with friends and family. There will be also the Christmas Tram that has become famous for young children to look forward to each year.
This will be the first time in 3 years Advent will not be held in the oldest part of Osijek in Tvrđa. Surrounded by the Majestic buildings given a great ambience for a magical setting of Advent. Perhaps the big question will be this will be how it will all look as everything comes together?
Osijek never a boring moment no matter what time of year.
