Fiumare, Kvarnerski sea festival

Traditional boats sailed into Korzo at the end of May and that can only mean one thing – they brought Fiumare with them. Every day until 5 June, Fiumare, the festival of the sea and maritime tradition with a Kvarner touch, will take us back "100 years into the past" to when the area by the Dead Channel was a site of frequent daily trading. This year, Fiumare will once again become a time machine by connecting the maritime and trading traditions of the past with everyday life in the present at the authentic locations of the Dead Channel and Verdi Street, while beyond Korzo, the traditional boats will also take over the entire sea basin and port of Rijeka. Wooden sailboats moored in the Dead Channel, merchants and craftsmen donning traditional folk costumes from across Kvarner, interactive maritime and fishing workshops, demonstrations of old customs, a culinary selection of indigenous dishes and wines, organised tours of historical sites in downtown Rijeka, traditional sailboat races, exhibitions, lectures, open decks days and museums... are all just part of Fiumare's overall programme.

All programs are subject to change and organizers are responsible for all the changes. Rijeka Tourist Board is not responsible for any last minute changes.
