A colourful Ratha Yatra, the Festival of Chariots, 2000-year old Indian tradition from Orissa, was held in downtown Zagreb on 06 August 2016, for the first time.

Beautifully decorated and painted in vibrant colours, an exotic wooden chariot was pulled from the main European Square via the Ban Jelacic Square to the Zrinjevac Park, as part of the city's biggest street festival in 2016. It was hosted by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), supported by the Indian Embassy and other organizations. There was enthusiastic participation from around 300 people. Focus was not on religion, but rather on culture and tradition, contributing to the multi-dimensional and multi-cultural spirit of Zagreb.
