Rijeka Advent vlakić Djeda Mraza

The dreams of every child in the days leading up to Christmas bring to mind their favourite – Santa – with whom they share their most secret wishes about which they have been fantasizing all year long.

To their great delight, they will be welcomed by Santa every day at the Korzo in Rijeka, where his choo-choo train will spread holiday cheer.

The company VJ Primorski from Rijeka, which has provided Santa’s choo-choo train for years, has also secured free rides for all children accompanied by a parent between 5 December 2021 and 9 January 2022 on the route Jelačić Square – Ante Starčević Street – Korzo – Jadran Square and back.

It will pass by magical Christmas scenes of the main Rijeka promenade, accompanied by the sounds of merry carols and children’s laughter.

A tourist train from Vrbnik will provide rides and bring joy to children, with support from the Rijeka Tourist Board.
