Family estate Salaj- one million and 800 thousand Christmas lights
Just 60km to the east from Zagreb there is a Christmas fairytale in shining way ( A3 motorway direction Slavonski Brod, exit Ivanić Grad, direction Čazma and from there follow the white signs Božićna bajka on every intersection to Grabovnica).
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.
