Upcoming events on the Opatija Riviera in August

Summer evenings on the terrace of the Remisens Premium Hotel Kvarner

The programme of events on the terrace of the Hotel Kvarner is already in full swing, and the schedule for the first half of August has just been announced. Every Monday you can enjoy the music of the Spart Jazz Trio, which consists of renowned musicians playing mainstream jazz and famous golden oldies.

Every Tuesday you are invited to an exciting dance evening featuring the greatest hits of world-famous musicals from the 1960s to the present day, performed by the singers and musicians of the Studio Maraton and the Liburnia Riviera Hotels dance entertainments team.

Dance spectacles continue every Wednesday with the Latino Dance Show and Mr. Elio Bašan, when you will have the chance to show off your dancing skills or simply admire attractive dancers performing standard and Latino dances.

Every Thursday you can enjoy hits by musicians who used to visit Opatija in the second half of the 20th century. The programme of the Studio Maraton performed by the singers and musicians under the baton of Tonči Trinajstić will evoke the atmosphere of the Opatija Festival, and you as the audience will have the opportunity to vote for the best song!

Ladies, get ready for the Miss Liburnia Beauty Contest! For the ninth year in a row we are organising the beauty contest for the most beautiful guest of Liburnia Riviera Hotels! Members of the jury are people from public life (the media, actors, singers, sponsors etc.). Admission is free!

Friday is always the day for fun and relaxation. Therefore we continue a programme called The Fantastic 10, which gives you free admission to concerts by renowned artists. On 8 August you can enjoy the exotic dance and music spectacle by Brazilian dancers and the Brasil Bahia Show, and on 15 August you are invited to a concert by the talented singer Natalie Dizdar, who will perform her own repertoire of jazz and golden oldies. 

For all lovers of flamenco – every Saturday the world-famous flamenco musician David Savčić and his band proudly present memorable evenings of music and dance.

In August Sunday is not a day of rest! When acoustic instruments contrabass, guitar, ukulele and Hammond organ meet three exceptional vocals, this results in a warm and fresh sound and an entirely new musical experience. In addition to its original songs, the GRAMOFON Band also performs golden oldies and bossa nova standards, rock 'n' roll and popular music from the 20th century based on a sophisticated acoustic sound. Every Sunday the band performs rock 'n' roll dance music on the hotel terrace.
