This event takes place at the end of August. Visitors have the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the tradition of the Crikvenica region, visit excellent exhibitions of paintings by artists who were inspired by the sea, take part in various art and sports workshops, or participate in different competitions. The distinguishing feature of Fisherman's Week is the traditional "Fishing with Guests", which has taken place for more than 50 years, giving visitors the opportunity to have a great time and get advice from skilled fishermen. Of course, Fisherman's Week also includes performances by local cultural, folklore and music groups, as well as the sampling of delicious seafood specialities. Let us embark together on a journey where the sea will tell you its story and invite you to enjoy the local traditions and customs that are still fostered here today.
