A tradition for more than 30 years

Balinjerada | Opatija

February 16, 2020

Balinjerada is an original attraction of Opatija, a race of homemade carts or vehicles on ball-bearing wheels (balinjere) that can gather quite some speed!

Participants dress in costumes and carnival masks to race down Opatija’s main street. The festival continues post-race with street food and entertainment.
