Rijeka Carnival

When & Where The Rijeka Carnival is in Rijeka, Croatia. This festival usually occurs mid-late January. Also known as karneval/carnaval and to locals as maškare.

Rijeka Mask Carnaval What to expect Concerts, all night parties and bell ringers wearing sailor shirts. Before the beginning of Lent, every town in the region of Kvarner burns its own effigy, called "mesopust". Mesopust is blamed for all the bad events of the previous year. Men also wear animal heads in an attempt to scare away the Winter- it works !

Getting there Fly direct to Rijeka International airport here or go by by rail here.

Accommodation in Rijeka

Where to stay There's lots of great quality and price accommodation in Rijeka and Croatia book your accommodation here.

People wear ugly masks to frighten off the "evil" Winter and summons the Spring: celebrating the birth of new life. An international crowd of 120,000 flock each year to celebrate this ugly mask festival.
