December 2014  

Dear citizens and guests of Zagreb,
The Advent sentiment and Christmas spirit envelop the metropolis in December. The end of the year is the time when stock is taken of results and successes in business, tourism and sports. The best and the most successful ones receive recognitions and awards.


Dear friends and business partners!
December gets many people's vote as the most beautiful month of the year. This may be due to the fact that, at least for a moment, we believe that we are leaving all the worries, hardships and doubts of the previous year behind us and that the year ahead of us will bring us more happiness, health and success.
