Rijeka Summer Nights

The summer nights in Croatia are colorful and full of versatile, cultural and entertaining programs, especially in Rijeka, where one celebrates the Summer Nights Festival in June and July each year. Every day for for three weeks, different concerts, theater performances, exhibitions and street performances take place. Over the summer, Rijeka and the Kvarner Bay annually attract more than 20,000 visitors. The Rijeka Summer Nights was launched in 2004 by the city in cooperation with the Tourist Board and the Croatian National Theater. Whether it be in front of the Sveti Vid Cathedral, in the Pecine Station or at the Trsat Fortress: During the Summer Nights, in different places all around the city, visitors can experience cultural events such as musical performances, ballet, theater performances and readings.

One of the main purposes of the event is to combine the city's historical places with the people who now live in it and breathe the life into Rijeka. The aim is to organize atmospheric theater at known and unknown places around the city to make its history more vivid. During these events, national artists, actors and musicians are supported by international colleagues. For example, the Japanese choreographer Moe Yamamoto and the famous tenor Jose Cura have already been guests at the Summer Nights of Rijeka. Operas, classical music, jazz, dance, ballet, acrobatic performances, drama and comedy are just a few aspects of this versatile program that especially attract culture buffs, lovers of classical music and literary enthusiasts. The spectacular opening ceremony with its often elaborate performances attracts many young visitors as well. The opening ceremony is free of charge, but the remaining events require an admission fee. Ticket prices lie between 4 and 20 Euros.
