Rijeka 2020 - European Capital of Culture
On the 1st of February Rijeka - the largest Croatian port, becomes the centre of a significant and extensive culture and arts programme and the host city for the best and most interesting artists from the global, Croatian and European cultural scenes. Rijeka is the first Croatian city to join a family of over sixty European cities that proudly carried this flattering title - The European Capital of Culture.
More than 300 programmes featuring over 600 individual events will take place in 2020. Over 350 partner organisations have been involved in the organisation of the programme, with partners and artists arriving from 55 European countries and the rest of the world. The three main programme themes were chosen as symbols of the intertwining identities of Rijeka: water, work and migration.
