Photos Of The Day: New Years Eve 2014 In Rijeka, Croatia






This is just to let people in on the 2014 New Years celebrations in Croatia, what we do, where, what and all that. Below I threw in some pics from downtown last night in the city of Rijeka. I'm not going to touch upon any other cities here, but I did do a post Here for the 2012 new year which has more images and footage from other Croatian locations. I originally decided to do that one because I was in Cowtown Alberta at the time, running into too many people who had no clue where Croatia is or what it's like there, as in thinking it's in Russia or the middle east, a very strange view of the world  and menu choices there I must say. (But then again, the vast majority of the people there don't even ski or know where Flin Flon is, also if it ain't sprinkled with nuts and whipped cream or deep fried, or if it doesn't go moo, they don't know where it is) Similar scenes take place in other Croatian cities and towns. I came across images of some towns even having downtown New Years day festivities complete with free food, music and activities.

Croatians have welcomed 2014 in with fireworks displays and parties up and down the country…

Rock band Hladno Pivo warmed up the thousands who turned up to Zagreb’s main square, before fireworks went off at the stroke of midnight as the capital’s residents partied late into the night. In the coastal Dalmatian city of Split more than 70,000 revellers turned up to see Gibonni perform before fireworks brought in the New Year in style.

Thousands packed Dubrovnik’s famous Stradun, including more than 6,000 tourists, to see in the New Year, while in the northern city of Varaždin, their traditional New Year race was held. The first baby born in Croatia was Sanja Kovač in the eastern city of Osijek at 3:30 this morning.
