From December 1st 2012 to January 10th 2013
Last winter, Belgrade joined the European metropolis, whose festive atmosphere is spiced up with traditional Christmas and New Year festivals. Romantic winter details and cottages spreading the smell of cakes, mulled wine, tea and other tasty drinks and snacks, will make this year also a special holiday corner – "Open Heart Square", at Trg Republike, from December 1st 2012 to January 10th 2013. The opening hours are from 10 a.m. to 23 p.m. every day. This event, as part of the city New Year's program, is organized by Belgrade Cultural Network and the City of Belgrade, supported by Tourist Organization of Belgrade and BELEF centre.
In the festive spirit, this manifestation will have humanitarian character. Like last year, when buying unique souvenir, New Year's Cup, at a price of 200 dinars, each visitor is helping to raise funds intended for the campaign of the Assembly of the City of Belgrade, "Belgrade Baby Club". The sales of New Year's cup starts during the next week.
The novelty of this year is specially designed charity cottage, where visitors will be able to bring toys and children's wardrobe, on every working day from 16 p.m. to 20 p.m., as well as on weekends from 12 p.m. to 20 p.m. Upon the event, everything collected, will be donated to the orphanages in Belgrade.
Tourist Organization of Belgrade, wishing to present quality souvenirs of Belgrade, has chosen a certain number of distinctive products and marked them by seal Belgrade souvenir. These new souvenirs of our capital, the visitors will have the opportunity to see and buy for the first time, right at the Open Heart Square.
For the weekend prior to New Year's Eve, we have prepared special program, concerts and New Year's plays for children.
Music, which accompanies the manifestation, will be selected by our friends from Hit Music FM radio.
