Engaging in enjoyable winter sport activities on ice at Rijeka Advent is becoming more popular with each year.
This is the first opportunity for many to showcase their ice skating skills on the popular Sea Snowflake, the first ice skating rink in Rijeka, which was named after its unusual and unique location by the sea.
True fun on ice begins against the backdrop of Christmas tunes and the sound of sharpened ice skates while attempting your first pirouettes and gliding to the beat of the music.
From fearless children to slightly cautious parents, all visitors enjoy the truly idyllic holiday atmosphere on ice.
We will skate into the new year in high spirits, which will make the Sea Snowflake a popular meeting place during the winter break. Those who want to perfect their skating skills can sign up for skating lessons during the school holidays.
Don’t miss out on a great time at the Sea Snowflake!
Numerous residents of Rijeka are eagerly awaiting the opening of the Sea Snowflake ice skating rink, which is organised by the company Gloster in cooperation with the City of Rijeka at Karolina Riječka Pier.
The oldest ice skating rink in Rijeka is scheduled to open on Friday 26 November 2021 at 4 pm. To celebrate the beginning of the new ice skating season, all visitors will be able to skate for free until 10 pm!
