The participating orchestra needs to prepare festival costumes and appropriate cheerful compositions for the carnival parade up to 30 minutes of free choice.

There will be interesting to hear playing scores of simple but fantastic orchestral songs that will be sent to each orchestra well in advance.



On the beautiful Istrian coast, just below the Channel of Lim, there lies Rovinj, one of the most romantic places on the Mediterranean, and one of the most developed tourist places in Croatia. This town is characterised by a rich natural and cultural heritage, particularly the church of St Euphemia, the old town and the Zlatni rt forest park. It represents an ideal destination for all those who yearn for a sentimental atmosphere of bygone times. Romantic and mysterious, but at the same time full of possibilities for unforgettable fun, Rovinj becomes and remains a town to which you want to return.

Situated in the very heart of the Istrian peninsula, only around 30 km from famous tourist spots, Pazin is a town with a long and rich tradition, as well as many sights. Despite not being situated on the coast, its surroundings are ideal for a variety of sporting activities. If you wish to experience an environment in which people have been living since the ancient times, participate in programmes celebrating the tradition, life or food, stroll through the old stronghold, leaf through an incunabulum or seek inspiration, the town of Pazin and inland Istria are the perfect places for you.
