Lim Bay Challenge - Sunny winter trail

In that moment when winter knocks on our door and the first snow covers the mountain tops, we invite you to descend to the sea and enjoy the benefits of the Mediterranean climate, running along the Lim bay and the Vrsar hinterland on a two-day event called Lim Bay Challenge - Sunny Winter Trail. The central venue is Resort Belvedere near Vrsar, Istria. On Saturday, December 15 2018, there are two categories on schedule - Sunny and Fun&Run, while on Sunday, December 16 are Urban category and Kids Trail Run (race for the youngest).   Competitors of the Sunny category are going to be transported by buses to the start - the famous medieval fort of Dvigrad, whose walls are going to be the starting point of the race. The finish line is at Resort Belvedere. The Sunny category is a classic hardcore trail race with 900m uphill and 1000m downhill on the 30 km track. The track is abundant with exceptionally beautiful sceneries, which, together with the mentioned Dvigrad, include the most beautiful viewpoints from which you can see the Lim Bay. The terrain itself is an interesting mix of Mediterranean rocky trails, forest of Kontija and coastal woodland.   The Urban category (14km +250m ), scheduled for the second day, is a kind of soft trail variant intended for classic trail runners as well for those who prefer road and urban running. The difference between the classical road running is that the Urban category along the standard asphalted roads includes a multitude of slopes and macadamas through thematic and classic parks and tourist camps, and unforgettable stairs in the old city cores. The track moves along the shore of resort Belvedere to the north and passes through the old town of Vrsar, a quarry beneath it, several campsites by the sea, the Sculpture Park Dušan Džamonja, the town of Funtana, and then returning to the finish at resort Belvedere.   Fun & Run category (10km +150 m ) is designed as a recreational race for all who want to spend a day in nature and enjoy easy walking and jogging. Kids Trail Run category is intended for children of preschool and school age up to 14 years:  pre-school do 250 m, 1 – 4 class do 500 m, 5 – 8 class do 1000 m. As part of the event, 1. Croatia's outdoor convection will be held. The topic of this year's edition: Beginnings, development and prospects (adventure races, trail, trekking, outdoor festivals)

Philharmonic Ball

Once again this year, on 30 December 2018, in a festive holiday spirit, with the whoop, „Everything is a waltz!“, Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra will inaugurate the PHILHARMONIC BALL! It is a musical, and a social event that demonstrates all the splendour of tradition (and the gowns) and pays homage to the musical genius of the Strauss family, with waltzes, polkas and quadrilles bringing the atmosphere of the Viennese court to life, in addition to classical elegance that has been a little bit forgotten. On this occasion, Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra will be conducted by maestro Ivan Hut, with solo performances by the most prominent young artists of our opera scene: soprano Ilijana Korać Teklić, baritone Leon Košavić and the indispensable Girls choir Zvjezdice whose young members’ voices make every special occasion even more “sparkling”. They say that nowhere are balls as romantically formal as in Vienna. They also say that during the winter in Vienna they have more than 450 such balls. Our Zagreb Philharmonic ball is one and only, unique, formal and romantic, inviting you to dance, to romance, as well as to socialise, it is the New Year’s Eve party before the New Year’s  Eve party. Dress up in formal clothes, ask for a dance, and “have a ball” in the rhythm of the waltz!

Christmas light - a completely different story

In memory of their namesake Ivan Bonifacije Pavletić, the Pavletić brothers, members of the Arteco association, in cooperation with the Oriovac Tourist Board have prepared an unusual Christmas exhibit and workshop of creating sculptures from grapevines. A Christmas light, the shooting star which announces the joyful even - the birth of Jesus Christ, was looked upon by both humans and animals. This biblical event is portaid by the brothers Pavletić by using biblical material such as olive branches and grapevines. Exhibition viewing time is during the day when you can take part in the workshop where you will create new works of art and during the night when the sculptures will shine the bright glow of thousands of Christmas lights. The Christmas exibit will be open from the 6th of December 2018.
