February sees masked balls around Croatia – something of a tradition. Rijeka has a full carnival devoted to it, with events through the month.
However, this is not something that is very well known outside the country, despite the Travel News Gazette naming Croatia as one of the top five countries for such events.
The Croatian tourist authorities should perhaps devote more effort in promoting this aspect of the country– bringing more tourists in the non-summer months.
For those living in or near London, we are pleased to report that the Croatian Students and Young Professionals Network (CSYPN) are holding a Masked Ball on Friday, 18 February at the Bar Solo in Camden. See here for details.
