Varaždin Baroque Evenings
During this year‘s 37th Varaždin Baroque Evenings , held in September in town of Varazdin, in Hrvatsko Zagorje, concerts have also been organised in Trakošcan Castle, in Ludbreg, Lepoglav, Varaždinske toplice, Krapina, Prelog, Zacretje, Križevci, Stubicki Golubovec, Osijek and Vukovar.
Croatian musicians have been for the first time been joined by artists from six European countries, which has also been the partner country to this year‘s Varaždin Baroque Evenings, staging concerts in their countries too.
In this fashion the Varaždin Baroque Evenings, which have been held for almost four decades and have long ago been recognised outside of Croatia as a significant cultural event, have united several European nations in a single cultural undertaking.
Music has always been at the heart of this baroque town, once the Croatian capital, and its citizens delighted to the sounds of musical virtuosos, dances and walks on the stunning town streets.
In the colour of the town‘s streets, where hundreds of thousands of tourists from around the world delight in the Špancirfest, held in August and September, or during the Baroque Evenings, the tradition and way of life in old Varaždin is reflected.
Through its Baroque evening Varaždin did not only attract the world‘s greatest names in music, it also promoted its own tourism through culture.
So it is that in the dominant edifice of the Old Town and in the Baroque churches and palaces, open to many cultural happenings, it again wrote new pages of its rich history, preserving its traditional way of life that tourists also recognise through the realisation of quality cultural projects.
