The Rijeka Boat Show 2021 will be held in the traditional term, on the last weekend in September, from September 24 to 26 at the Karolina Riječka Pier.
Under the motto "The city is a port, the port is a city", this year's Rijeka Boat Show will present visitors with a number of attractive exhibitors, including well-known brands from the world of nautical, Croatian small shipbuilding and related equipment. The Nautical Fair in Rijeka is the oldest fair of its kind in this area. Since 1984, the Nautica fair has been a reference point in the former state for the entire small shipbuilding business and the presentation of vessels and accompanying facilities. In 2013, the fair was renamed the Rijeka Nautic Show, and in 2019 the new organization redesigned the name, but also modernized the entire concept of the fair according to the latest standards, and since then this nautical event is held under its current name - Rijeka Boat Show.
At the same location, on the Karolina Riječka Pier, on the same weekend as the Rijeka Boat Show, the 9th Maritime Festival Fiumare is held at a number of locations in the city - the Kvarner Festival of the Sea and Maritime Tradition gives Rijeka additional charm of ancient maritime times. The offer of both events will make Rijeka a nautical and maritime destination on the last weekend in September. The combination of the atmosphere of Rijeka's rich maritime past and modern nautical trends of the present will offer a strong experience of Rijeka open to the sea, which through maritime heritage and the city's connection with the sea is present from history to today in various ways.
The Rijeka Boat Show will provide visitors with many attractive surprises, and exhibitors the opportunity to promote and sell boats and nautical equipment.
The Rijeka Boat Show will soon be a strong and relevant nautical fair, and the city of Rijeka will once again become what it has always been, the "First Sea" for most of Europe.
