If you fancy getting away to somewhere a little different, and far cheaper, at Christmas time – allow me to suggest Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. In this article for TNT Magazine, I highlight eight reasons why you should visit.
Here’s an excerpt:
“December is the “Silly Season” and we all know what that means…it is never too early in the day for a drink! Zagreb will happily oblige this age-old tradition. Don’t be surprised if you are offered a small glass of ruta, schnapps made from tree root, with your morning coffee. Perhaps a pre-lunch aperitif of fennel brandy would appeal? If not, we are sure that you will be tempted by something festive like mistletoe, fig or plum rakije – their local spirit.”
