Summer Balinjerada (soapbox race)
June 10th from 7 p.m.
To experience carnival in Opatija, you can attend the ‘Balinjerada’ soapbox race of original self-made vehicles called ‘karići’ that run on ball bearings (locally known as balinjere – hence the name) instead of wheels. This crazy race is a barrel of fun for both young and old. ‘Taxi Balinjera’ is the name of a programme which enables visitors and tourists to experience this crazy ride themselves. Don’t wait any longer – put on a mask and come to Opatija during summer carnival!
