Event Details

Rijeka Carnival in Croatia is a month-long celebration of the catholic carnival right before the start of fasting.

If you are in the area in February or March, dates vary every year, a visit to the carnival is a must-do. The Rijeka Carnival in Croatia is one of the biggest carnivals in Europe. You’ll experience a unique atmosphere with a bit of Venetian and Austrian influence.

We recommend you to visit at least the most famous event of the carnival, the parade. This parade will be held on the last Sunday before the end of the festival. It is a spectacle for the whole family. Also, make sure to book your hotel room in advance because this event attracts people from all around the country.

Apart from the big parade with colorful floats, music, elaborate costumes, and caricatures, this carnival has a pageant, DJ sessions, and even a snowboard contest. You’ll find the activities in the city center around Korzo street.
