Rijeka’s annual Carnival celebration is held annually, just before Lent, typically between the last half of January and Ash Wednesday. A prohibition document, dating back to 1449, prohibited residents from wearing masks over their faces, and the Carnival grew as a critical commentary to the prohibition. It wasn’t until 1982, however, that the first carnival groups paraded under masks. Rijeka’s Carnival includes pageants, concerts, masked balls, street dances, and more. Don’t miss the zvončari, masked men who wear animal skins while dancing and ringing loud bells believed to scare away evil spirits.
