Holiday in Croatia

Iron Maiden European tour

Following the massively successful global tour of 2016-17 in support of their 16th studio album The Book Of Souls IRON MAIDEN will take to the road again in 2018 with a series of arena and festival shows in Europe on the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour opening in Tallinn, Estonia on May 26and finishing at the o2 Arena, London on August 10. The date of the concert in Zagreb is July 24th 2018. The full European tour schedule can be found on ironmaiden.com and the tour is expected to continue in 2019.

The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood explains further,

“As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with “History/Hits” tours. We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too.

“For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name,  which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie! I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”

Most shows go on sale Friday 24th November, please check IronMaiden.com for full details.  As always, there will be an exclusive presale for Fan Club members, starting Monday 20th.

Live Nativity Scene

Young men and women from the Cenacolo Community, once trapped in the world of drugs and alcohol, see the birth of Jesus as their own rebirth. It is therefore not in the least surprising that their deeply felt performance exudes a special kind of energy, thus conveying comfort and peace to all the onlookers. Jesus' crib, the manger, people of Bethlehem, farm animals, the three wise men from the East and the shepherds will take you back to the time of Jesus' birth and add a whole new layer to the Advent atmosphere.

The beauty of the Opatija Riviera in winter is so attractive that even Santa Claus cannot resist it, and from Lapland, he arrives at his "residence", situated on Učka mountain - deep snow and a sleigh, drawn by horses are a perfect setting for socializing with sweet bearded granddaddy at the 'Christmas fairy tale' event in Učka nature Park. During three days in mid-December, this event is a delight for children and their parents.

When the year ends for majority of marathon runners, and Europe is putting on winter cloths and skis, a sunny Crikvenica is preparing a real sport treat entitled Adria Advent Marathon. The marathon takes place every first Advent in the year. Although young, Adria Advent Marathon showed at its premiere in 2011, a large potential and peculiarity, gathered and united marathon runners from the entire world who, for the first time in the history of Crikvenica, run the total of 42.195 meters by the sea. Without the fear that they will taste the pleasure of their stay only half-heartedly, those who are less enduring, amateurs and citizens may try themselves in a semi-marathon, a race of 21.975 m. An impressive scene of the race by the sea, pleasurable mingling, a passion for sports and recreation, as well as a challenge to participate in, are only a few of the reasons to visit Crikvenica at the time the marathon takes place, which is included in the competition of Croatia for road and mountain running.
