Advent in Vukovar and Vukovar Advent Festivities

On the foundations of traditional culture, Vukovar Advent Festivities have been held annually since 1997 and include a number of musical and stage performances, accompanied by the lighting of advent candles. During the festivities for the first Sunday, a glowing river of torches carries a light through the streets of Vukovar from Saint Philip and Jacob Church to Eltz Manor, where the light is carried inside and the first advent candle is lit, accompanied by a presentation of traditional customs.

Advent in Vukovar has been growing year after year, so over the course of four Advent weeks there is a living nativity scene, various shows and workshops in Santa’s Corner, ice-skating on the town’s ice rink and a lantern festival in anticipation of the birth of Jesus.
