One of the biggest carnivals in Europe, the Rijeka Carnival held in Croatia’s third largest city, concluded on Sunday 26 February with more than 10,000 people taking part in the traditional Carnival parade.
After six weeks of carnival entertainment, concerts and charity events, the 2017 Rijeka Carnival reached its climax on Sunday with the traditional parade on Rijeka’s Korzo.
More than 10,000 people in over 110 carnival groups from Rijeka, other parts of Croatia and from abroad, dressed up in a range of colours, costumes and characters as they showed their creativity as they made their way on floats in downtown Rijeka.
Carnival parties will continue well into Sunday night.
The International Carnival parade draws people from all around Europe and has been a February tradition in the city since 1982.
