The artistic productions let the city shine in a beautiful light. The familiar and ordinary became new and exciting thanks to the many visionary works of the artists.
The Festival of Lights in Zagreb was one of the first events to usher in the new tourist season.
At the beginning of spring in March 2022, the capital of Croatia was once again transformed into a light spectacle with the Festival of Lights. Streets, squares, parks and landmarks became the scene of playful & impressive light installations from March 16-20. The familiar and ordinary became new and exciting thanks to the artists* whose visions showed the city in a different light. Part art, part design, architecture and entertainment spectacle, the festival offered both beauty to behold and a new way of looking at the world. Scattered throughout the city center were 34 exciting works of light to discover. We are proud to have realized impressive projections as well as the 3D video mapping on the Nimara Museum.
For the third year in a row, FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Zagreb took place in 2019 and many people eagerly awaited the 5-day event in the capital of Croatia.
As one of the first spring events in Zagreb, FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS attracts more tourists to the beautiful city every year, where they can marvel at the spectacular projections and light art works.
An enchanted forest of interactive lights was set up in the Grič Tunnel. Matching the magical installations, one could hear sounds from nature. In Tomićeva Street you could plunge into a waterfall of colorful glowing balls, and the Lotrščak Tower was transformed into a landmark lighthouse for three nights. Guests could admire these and many more attractions in Zagreb in 2019.
In March, the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS took place in Zagreb for the second time. Using the most innovative technology, some of the most imposing buildings in the city were illuminated, familiar facades were immersed in new dimensions, spectacular light curtains and galleries under the stars were created. FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Zagreb took its guests into spring, the time of awakening, growth and rebirth, with fun, joy and a magical atmosphere.
Consisting of art, design, architecture and entertainment, the festival was a feast for the eyes on the one hand and evoked diverse thoughts and feelings in its visitors on the other.
The 2018 festival was awarded the Conventa Best Event Award in the B2C category as the best public event.
The first FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Zagreb (“Festival Svjetla Zagreb”) was held in the Croatian capital from March 16 to 19.
Seven stations in the upper town of Gornji Grad became magnets for the whole family for four evenings. Curious residents and international guests strolled through the alleys and across the squares of the old town to admire the colorful illuminations.
The central theme of the light spectacle was the awakening of nature and spring, which had already arrived by this time.
Two special highlights of the four-day event were the laser show on Plato Gradec opposite the cathedral and the Proljetna bajka (German: Spring Fairy Tale) on Jesuit Square.
