Street Musicians in Zagreb

Street performers and musicians are the core of every city; their talent is what makes city streets less dull and more interesting. Sometimes they make you laugh and instantly make your day better, sometimes they annoy you, but it’s safe to say that some of them are incredibly talented and the sound of their music gives you goosebumps. Erasmus students who love music and think that Zagreb is full of musical talent, decided to check which kind of street musicians can be found on the streets of Zagreb. Therefore, they talked to three people who love to share their talent and skills with others. These are their interesting stories.

Street Art

Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. But when you paint something on the street, it is no longer your own – it becomes public property.  Erasmus students took a look at the street art scene in Zagreb. They talked with ordinary people on the street and with some of the street artists. One of the most prominent places where street art is shown is the wall in Branimirova street, also known as the Street Art Museum. It was started in 2010, and since then different artists have collaborated in making the wall what it is today – a…

Zagreb Film Festival

Zagreb Film Festival this year for the first time, instead of traditional October, takes place in November on the usual city locations. Erasmus students visited some of them and talked to directors who participated in this year’s edition. Since the very beginning, Zagreb Film Festival has been programmatically focused on the presentation and promotion of debut films and new filmmakers. For those who didn’t know, Zagreb Film Festival is held since 2003 and it regularly features several international competition programs – feature films, short films and documentary films, with one short film competition program for Croatian filmmakers. It often hosts non-competitive screenings, like debut works made by established film directors or selections…

All Saint’s Day

All Saints’ Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. Some may remember it as the day after Halloween, but traditionally, it’s the day that is mostly spent visiting the graves of the ones that we lost. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. All across the Europe, the day is commemorated with offerings of flowers left on the graves of the deceased. Erasmus students visited the largest cemetery in Croatia and explained how this holiday is celebrated in their countries. If you’re curious and want to find out more about it, visit…

Political Campaigns in Croatia

With great power comes great responsibility, as Ben Parker used to say. In the case of Croatian parliamentary elections (or any elections around the world, really), with great power comes a lot of benefits and plenty of new ways to trick people into giving you their vote. Erasmus students experienced their first parliamentary elections in Croatia and of course, political campaigns, promising and realistic as always. They went to the main square, and tried to approach some politicians or their supporters in hopes of gathering some information related to their political programmes. It was also an opportunity for Erasmus students to test their English-speaking skills. Watch the video and see if they managed…

Mulled wine, Glühwein, hot wine?

Everybody knows what mulled wine is, or hot wine aka. Glühwein, if you prefer. It is a hot drink typically served during the winter. You can also find it in Zagreb on it’s different Christmas Markets and of course in a lot of bars and cafes . But, besides the taste of its cinnamon spiced aroma, do you know who invented it? Do you know how to make it? Erasmus students are trying to explain the tradition of hot wine in Zagreb on it’s Christmas markets. They compared the Croatian hot wine with wine in Germany, Poland and Sweden.
