Sunday, 29th December | We meet at 0.50am for our Air Malta flight departing at 2.50am. On arrival in Zagreb at 4.35am, our coach will take us to our 5 star central Hotel Westin Zagreb. We check in our rooms and rest. Early afternoon, we will then go for an optional half day city tour of Zagreb, the metropolis of Croatian spirit. Zagreb has grown to be a city of one million inhabitants and Croatia’s cultural, spiritual, economic, political and sport center. We will visit the Upper Town with its Gothic Cathedral, St. Catherine’s Church and the massive St. Mark’s Church with a multi-colour-tiled roof. We will also see the medieval Stone Gate, the open-air market, the Lower Town and its colourful turn-of-the-century architecture best represented in the building of the Croatian National Theater and Opera House.

Monday, 30th December |Our full day optional excursion today takes us to the nearby medieval town of Samobor. This town replete with baroque architecture lies on the eastern slopes of the Samoborsko hills at the gateway to the romantic valley of the Gradna Creek. Samobor is amongst the most popular destinations for Croatian residents and with such beautiful surroundings it is easy to understand why. We later visit a family farm where we can taste some quality wines whilst enjoying a snack. Our last drive takes us towards Marija Bistrica. Marija Bistrica has an old Marian shrine of the Black Madonna which is a place of pilgrimage and visited by hundreds of thousands of pilgrims every year. The miraculous wooden black statue of the Holy Virgin originates from the 15th century, and it is the work of an unknown local master devoted to believers who suffered heavy misfortune.

Tuesday, 31st December | Today we have a day at leisure where we can enjoy Zagreb preparing for the New Year! We suggest going for a stroll towards the town centre, or for those shopping enthusiasts, there are various shopping centres inside and outside the city where one can find some really good deals! Later in the evening, we will prepare ourselves before we enjoy our New Year Gala Dinner in our hotel!

Wednesday, 1st January - Happy New Year! | We start off with a relaxed morning, followed by a full-day optional excursion, first taking us us to the city of Varazdin. Varazdin is the city of baroque, young people, music, flowers and bicycles. Varazdin is one of the most attractive destinations to live in or to visit in Croatia. We later go to Trakoscan castle, the most visited, most famous and best preserved castle in the country. Built in the 14th century as a small fortress, the castle has been rebuilt and renovated several times until the 19th century. After a guided tour of the castle, you can stroll around the lovely woods encircling the castle’s lake.

Thursday, 2nd January | Our last full day optional excursion will first take us to a UNESCO World Heritage Site; the Plitvice Lakes, known to be one of the most beautiful and best preserved spots in the country. It is a valley situated between high forested mountains. With a string of sixteen beautiful crystal blue and green lakes tumbling into each other via a series of waterfalls and cascades. Lunch (extra) can be enjoyed in a restaurant with typical ambience in the heart of the Park. We will enjoy a guided tour of the National Park and enjoy some free time. (Fit for walking snow shoes and warm clothing are required for this excursion since there will be plenty of snow and some pathways don’t have railings to hold on to). We return to our hotel. Check out by noon. (please consult with your tour leader should you wish a late check out). Later in the evening we depart our hotel to make our way towards the airport for our Air Malta flight departing at 0.50am and arriving in Malta at 2.35am (early Friday morning).
