Welcome in New Year before anyone else!

Gorski kotar's popular resort of Fužine continues to attract plenty of visitors to its unique New Year's party! Do you wonder why? Because Fužine has a tradition of welcoming in the New Year before anyone else, more precisely at noon! This might come in handy for many people who are eager to finish this year characterised by recession and start a new, hopefully better one as soon as possible!

In Fužine, a popular holiday resort in Gorski kotar, there is a tradition of welcoming in New Year at noon. Due to the very cold weather at this time of the year, people of Fužine got the idea how to celebrate the New Year party under more comfortable weather conditions. This is why they welcome in the New Year 12 hours before the others, and this year this approach has one additional advantage – earlier farewell from the year that was characterised by recession.

The midday party in Fužine continues to attract many visitors from Croatia and abroad, which is why accommodation in the area should be booked well in advance.

The party with music, dance, mulled wine and local specialities will be as always sponsored by the Fužine Tourism Office.

After that, the celebration will continue indoors, which means that the New Year party in Fužine's romantic winter ambience lasts much longer than elsewhere.
