Special Experiences

Learn about Austria’s snow globe industry with a visit to the Original Viennese snow globe factory and museum. Invented over 100 years ago in Vienna, the family business continues to produce its traditional snow globes that were first manufactured in 1920.
Travel to the Stella Croatica village where we enjoy a 3-course meal of Croatian Christmas dishes. With a motto “tradition does not mean to look after the ash, but to keep the flame alive”, our small group connects with the proud cultural heritage that is passionately coupled with a modern twist.
We discover the craft of Croatian gingerbread making. Inscribed in 2010 on the Representative List of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, Croatia’s gingerbread craft is steeped in tradition. We learn about the craft while decorating our own love heart shaped gingerbread, the most common shape made in Croatia.
