As spring sets in, the city of Zagreb turns into a spectacular light show directed by the Festival of Lights. Streets, squares, parks, buildings and landmarks become a stage for playful light installations. The familiar and well-known becomes new and exciting again, thanks to the artists whose visions shed a new light on Zagreb, literally!
The Festival of Lights will take place in the capital of Croatia from March 18th to March 22th.
In 2017 Zagreb’s very first Festival of Lights was a four-day celebration of spring that included experiencing a light harp and challenged visitors to win a prize in a unique laser maze.
Festival of Lights Zagreb is one of the first events heralding the new tourist season, enticing us outside to enjoy a spring night in the city and to witness innovative art and the joy of light. Just one more reason to visit Zagreb!
Light art is a new discipline that has escaped the confines of museum walls, its artists using as their canvas the city, its buildings, its monuments, the night sky itself. Part art, part design, architecture and entertainment spectacle, the festival both brings you something beautiful to look at and something to make you see your world differently.
Festivals of Light are bringing an exciting new dimension to ever more cities around the world, enrobing their famous monuments in vivid hues or using them as an integral part of creative works.
