We also suggest you walk to the Cathedral on Kaptol where you will be welcomed by a living Nativity scene, a true reminder of the real meaning of Christmas. If you walk down both Gajeva and Bogovićeva ulica, you will find a Christmas market with more souvenirs to take home which include: gloves, scarves, hats, decorations for the home, and food souvenirs... You just might have your luggage bag bursting at the seams with so much on offer.
As you head towards the Upper Town you can strike a pose on Gradec as a special area has been decorated where at the touch of a button snow starts to fall, another sweet concept for taking photos. The Upper Town surrounding streets are ideal for a romantic walk with side programs found on various corners (Stross and Opatovina),one of which is at the Vranicanijeva poljana, just one of the many pit-stops on your Upper Town route.
Brass bands will often perform on Christmas balconies around town, in particular on Tkalčićeva ulica, the Croatian National Theatre and Lav Gallery (Stone Gate).
