An interesting event full of light effects is on the horizon in the Croatian capital of Zagreb.
For the second year in a row, in organization of the Zagreb Tourist Board and with the support of the City of Zagreb, the Festival of Lights will be held from the 15th to the 18th of March in Zagreb. This festival will present the state-of-the-art lighting solutions based on lighting technologies in the historic core of the city.
The theme of the festival is the spring that symbolizes the awakening, growth and renaissance, therefore each of the locations will try to evoke the springtime through light performances that will be held from 6 to 11 pm every day during the festival.
The first Festival of Lights Zagreb was held last year on seven locations and attracted more than 100,000 visitors. From the previous seven locations in Upper Town, this year’s festival has expanded to 19 locations such as the Grič tunnel, Art Park, Tomićeva Street, the Lotršćak Tower, Grič Park, Gradec plateau, Jesuite Square, Klovićevi Dvori Gallery, Opatička Street, the Croatian History Institute etc.
With the four-day festival, Zagreb will join the other world cities such as Prague, Lyon, Amsterdam, St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Berlin which already have a tradition of organizing such festivals.
It is interesting to note that last year the Festival of Lights Zagreb was included in the international organization Festival of Lights International.
