Fiumare, the sea and maritime tradition festival of Kvarner, taking place between 30 May and 6 June, will “take us back a 100 years” once more, when the Mrtvi kanal (Dead Channel) was an everyday intensive trade route. Connecting the maritime and trade traditions of the past with our times, Fiumare will again be a sort of a time machine in authentic locations such as the Dead Channel and Verdijeva Street. The pre-programme, taking place from 24 to 27 May, will include the lecture “Maritime Customs and the Contemporary Presentation of Traditional Boats” in the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka, with the opening of the photography exposition on the Botel Marina, and the 6th lake regatta with traditional sailing boats in Lokve.
