Thirteen years ago family Salaj started to decorate their 60 000m2 estate with Christamas lights. First year they put 70 thousand lights. With each year number of decoration lights grew higer, and this year one million and 800 thousand lights are on every night from 5th december  to 9th january. And now the village of 500 residents, 70 000 people visit  each year in december. Decoration work starts three months before opening day and  around 6 people works in Salaj estate to make the magic alive.

There is a parking space, souvenir shop, restaurant (try Salajnica) and mulled wine stands (with white and red sweeter then mulled in Zagreb). Do not forget to take the kids with you. Lakes, bridges, paths, 1200 threes, mill-wheel and waterfall together with  Smurfs, snowman, penguin, bear, frozen lake, north pole and Santa Claus  will put a smile on face of every child (and My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding crew).  When fireworks  light up the sky (every half hour)  experience is full.  And one more thing. We keep our fingers crossed that in the days of your visit to Salaj estate the snow will fall. Then it will be the real Christmas spirit feeling.
