Four million lights transform Croatian estate into festive theme park

A record four million lights transformed one family’s country estate in central Croatia into a Christmas-themed fairy tale delighting visitors and locals. The seven-hectare park grew out of a childhood dream of Zlatko Salaj, a local man from the village of Grabovnica in central Croatia who had grown up in poverty and could not afford Christmas lights or decorations. After spending his working career abroad, Salaj returned home in the early 2000s to reconstruct his family estate, and that’s when he had the idea to install thousands of lights to celebrate Christmas in style.
Meanwhile, a snowy Moscow park turned red as 2,000 volunteers dressed as Santas came together for a charity run to raise money for Russian hospices. Participants could choose between the distances of five and ten kilometres inside the park of the Soviet VDNKH expo center. Each of them donated around 21 USD in the charity fund called Faith.
