Visit a Croatian festival on your superyacht 2013

Croatia has firmly cemented its position as a top spot for superyacht charters during the balmy summer months. With an uninterrupted coastline, many quaint villages and ancient sea-side resorts to explore you will never be stuck for entertainment. However, to completely immerse yourself in local culture why not check out one of the many festivals on offer this summer – from flower arranging to music – a summer charter in Croatia has never been more exciting.

26 May –- 8 June: Dance Week Festival, Zagreb

The Dance Week Festival showcases contemporary dance, movement theatre and mime in a weeklong series of workshops and demonstrations. The Institute for Movement and Dance organises the show, which is now in its 30th year. The annual festival is the ideal place for both established and new choreographers to showcase their talents. Featuring various performances, workshops and lectures, the festival also examines the art of dance within Croatian culture and society. For something a little different on your charter holiday – this is the perfect drop-off for the day.

29 May -– 2 June: 48th International Garden Exhibition, Floraart

For those interested in flora and fauna, the perfect superyacht stop in Croatia for you will be at the 48th International Garden Exhibition in Zagreb.
The show returns to Zagreb’s Bundek Lake at the end of May and will showcase displays from Croatian and global exhibitors, displayed in over 30 hectares of outdoor space and two thousand square metres of indoor space. The exhibition also offers horticulture lectures coupled with flower arranging master classes. Spend a few days in the city of Zagreb to truly get a feel for the capital.

14 -– 15 June: Songs of the Podravina Region Festival, Pitomaca

Although this festival is located inland it is well worth a visit if you have some spare time before or after your charter. Traditional Croatian music artists gather to perform in front of quite impressive crowds. Located in the Virovitica-Podravina County, the festival hopes to encourage contemporary folk songs based on the music and poetic tradition of Croatian towns along the river Drava.

24 -– 30 June: Wildflower Festival, Stari Grad

The diverse range of flora and fauna on the island of Hvar has inspired Stari Grad to host one of this year’s Wildflower Festivals. Sponsored by the European Commission and partner country Slovenia, the festivals celebrate the importance of wild flowers within European culture. Stari Grad, is a superyacht lovers paradise, boasting the title of Croatia’s oldest town, it offers visitors a more laid back vibe compared to the glitz and glamour of Hvar harbour town.
