Families looking for a new destination to visit this Christmas have been encouraged to consider Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.

Darja Juzbasic of the Zagreb Tourist Board said the destination offers plenty of activities for parents and children throughout the year, including a zoo and a Disney on Ice show.

She also commented on some of the special experiences available during the autumn and winter months.

'Numerous events will be taking place on the main city square as well as other squares and streets throughout the city,' said Ms Juzbasic.

'The traditional pre-holiday event, Advent in Zagreb, will begin on 2 December.'

A Christmas fair takes place every year in the streets surrounding Ban Jelacic Square in the heart of Croatia's capital, where children can go for a ride on a tram with Santa Claus, fairies, elves and other festive characters.

The country is also home to the cities of Dubrovnik and Split, which boast a number of historical attractions, and popular holiday islands like Hvar and Korcula.
