New Year`s Eve in Zagreb

Do you have any plans for the New Year`s Eve?
I have not yet planned anything special for the NYE.
Last year, we were in Zagreb, Croatia and had lots of fun.
Here are some pictures to inspire you for the NYE.

2011 ice cube has almost melted. Are you ready for 2012?

Let`s start with some holiday window displays from Zagreb.
Loved colorful holiday window displays and decorations.
Zagreb is full with small art galleries.
And they have lovely fashion-inspired window displays.

I cannot imagine  winter without outdoor ice skating.
Ice skating has been a family tradition in Europe during Christmas and NYE.
In Zagreb, ice skating rink is located at the main square of ban Josip Jelacic.
This place is a must to feel the joy of new year.

Not only shops, but also houses were decorated for the New Year`s Eve.
We loved the  houses decorated with lights.
Old town in Zagreb was more than ready;)

Our 2011 celebrations started at the Hemingway Lounge.

According to Zagreb Guide, this place is a popular hangout address for cool and stylish people in Zagreb.
We stopped here for a cocktail before the NYE Party.
We picked Hemingway Lounge because it`s just across the Opera House.

And I loved the gold decoration elements at the Hemingway Lounge.

We attended NYE Party organized by Croat National TV at the Opera House.
My followers would remember that how I love Opera.
Zagreb National Theater has an amazing architecture. 
Loved the stunning ceiling paintings.
First, we watched `the Bat` operetta.
Then, we had champagne for the new year;)

After the party at the Opera House, we walked to the main square ban Josip Jelacic.
All the streets in Zagreb were lighted and glittered.

At the main square, there was a live rock concert by popular Croatian bands.
Of course, we knew none of them;)
But the spirit around us were great. So we had lots of fun!
We counted down to New Year by dancing with crowds in Zagreb.

The weather was cold. We kept ourselves warm with mulled wine.
And sometimes we kept refuge at VinoGrad. A great wine bar at the main square.

And the next day, we woke up to a White Zagreb.
Due to snow, our flight back home was cancelled.
So, my hubby and I had an extra `hotel sweet hotel` day;)
It was so cozy...
Drinking tea, listening piano and playing Fashion Scrabble;)

Such a lovely way to spend your New Years Eve last year. I look forward to finding out how you spent this one. We're spending ours quietly at home, celebrating with the family.
