The most magical Advent in Kvarner – the Rijeka Advent
The most magical season is knocking at our door and this year’s Rijeka Advent in the city centre and at Trsat Castle will be somewhat different from what we have been used to in the past few years.
This year, we need magic more than ever and the decorative lights will awaken our holiday spirit, bathe us in warmth and light and spread positive energy. Nearly 500,000 lights will illuminate almost every corner of the city, stretching mile after mile. Seasonal music will play over the city loudspeakers all along Korzo, awakening our holiday spirit, and Ivan Kobler Square will be adorned with the traditional Advent wreath.
Once again, Trsat Castle will receive a makeover, donning a cape made of even more Christmas lights than last year, and visitors will be able to take in some of this holiday atmosphere every day from 9 am to 9 pm. During this Advent season, unique Christmas decorations will awaken the Christmas spirit in the centuries-old Trsat lady and the magnificent Votive Crown, the largest in Europe, will once again overlook the city.
From 5 pm to 7 pm on weekdays and Sundays, as well as from 10 am to 1 pm and from 5 pm to 7 pm on Saturdays, you’ll have the opportunity to have your photo taken in front of Santa’s House, where the Kurti Photo Studio will operate a photo point in accordance with the prescribed epidemiological measures. Everyone who takes a photo will receive a free Christmas card with their photo and take some holiday magic home with them.
Time of event: November-January
