Those visiting Zagreb this weekend for its award-winning Advent season really couldn't have picked a better time to come to the Croatian capital. Its flickering Christmas lights, bustling crowds, seasonal street food and entertainments are set to play out before a backdrop of snow. The city's residents awoke on Friday morning to see a thin white blanket covering the streets, the snowflakes still falling as they made their way into work.

That may sound cold to those used to Croatia's dependably warm summers, but conditions are actually quite mild. Winter clothing will be essential over the weekend as temperatures are expected to plummet to around -7 degrees over Saturday and Sunday.
