February in Croatia

The month of February (Veljača in Croatian) may be too cold to lay on the beach, but don't fret, there is plenty of other fun to be had! Carnival or Maškara continues through this month and ends the day before Ash Wednesday, which sometimes takes place in February, but this year does not happen until March 6th. Every weekend throughout the country's cities, towns and villages celebrations proceed with parades, live music, dance and theatre performances, delicious food and drink.

On the 1st of February from 6:00pm to 1:00am museums open their doors for "Night of the Museums." Over 200 museums from around Croatia participate. This is a free event filled with many different workshops and other events. For more information go to the Croatian Museum Association website: http://hrmud.hr

On February 3rd in the city of Dubrovnik is "The Festival (or Feast) of Saint Blaise" or Sveti Vlaho in Croatian has been celebrated since the year 972. Saint Blaise is the patron saint of Dubrovnik. Also known as the “City of Dubrovnik Day," where a host of ceremonies, concerts, exhibitions, theatre performances and other events are held for the next several days.

From February 24th through March 3rd is the city of Zagreb's international documentary film festival called "Zagreb Dox" held at Kaptol Boutique Cinema. Some of the most influential film makers from all over the world feature their work here, including Oscar nominated films as well as Venice, IDFA and Sundance winners.

February may be the shortest month of the year, but Croatia will keep you immersed with a full calendar of experiences to discover while you are on vacation. If none of these events interest you, good food and wine is always an option.
