Zagreb is celebrating its first Cravat days festival from the October 14th to the October 18. Because of that, some of the most known statues around Zagreb are decorated with this piece of clothing which is invented by Croats back in the 17th century.
This is one of those murals which is hidden a bit, but you can notice is from the Savska Street, and it attracts you like a magnet. The mural, showing a boy sleeping, is called Technicolor dream and it was made by two famous Croatian street artists – Lonac and CHEZ 186.

Next to many interesting locations and buildings around the oldest part of Zagreb (which is called the Upper town), this time we would like to show you one really cool tradition which you can witness every day in the late afternoon.
