Do you ever wonder how advent or christmas markets looks in other countries?
We all know how advent looks in New York city. By that I mean a Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. “For over eight decades, the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center and the holiday decorations adorning and surrounding have stood as a holiday beacon for New Yorkers and visitors alike. From the beginning, the Tree was a gathering place and reflection of what was happening in the world around it. Even before the first formal tree went up, workers lined up beneath a Christmas tree on the Rockefeller Plaza construction site to collect their paychecks during the height of the Great Depression. People from around the world came after September 11th to see the Tree decorated in a patriotic red, white and blue. Today, more than half a million people pass by the Tree every day, making Rockefeller Center the epicenter of New York City’s holiday celebrations.” ( https://www.rockefellercenter.com)
I will show you how looks Advent in Rijeka in trilogy. First part of this trilogy is Advent on Trsat Castle.
Advent on Trsat Castle
In the Rijeka the Christmas markets are placed in several places. As I earlier mentioned, I will show you Advent on Trsat Castle. “Trsat Castle (Croatian: Gradina Trsat) is a castle in Rijeka, Croatia. It is thought that the castle lies at the exact spot of an ancient Illyrian and Roman fortress. The Trsat castle was completely reconstructed and renovated in the 19th century when the mausoleum of the military commander Laval Nugent was built in its interior. The courtyard of the castle has now been turned into a restaurant and many tourists visit the place all the year.” (wikipedia.org)
The Advent on Gradina is pretty new, started three years ago, but it attracted a large number of visitors. It began on the first Sunday in December, when 17 kilometers of Christmas lights shone with full splendor!
I’m happy to show you something special. The Advent in Rijeka is really special, the organizers are working hard to give their best every year and make this advent more beautiful every year.
Where to Stay
As I live in Rijeka, I did not stay in a hotel or apartment, but I would recommend Deluxe apartments Trsat located 550 m (0,34 miles) from Trsat Castle. As you already know, I am crazy about the interior design and decoration and the apartment should be updated and modern. This apartment is very stylish and modern decorated. I would really recommend you to stay here.Y ou can read great impressions on Booking.com of people who stayed in apartment.
