According to the popularity, number of concerts and visitors, this is the largest jazz festival in Croatia. Every first weekend in July, Opatija lives the jazz. The goal of this festival is to introduce this type of music to people whose ears have not been accustomed to jazz yet. The artists who perform at this festival are all world famous jazz stars (Joe Zawinul, Mike Stern, Mike Mainieri, Kenny Garrett, Medeski, Marin & Wood). Besides the summer stage concerts, the off program of the Festival, the so-called Street Jazz, takes place in seven locations in the town, from early afternoon until evening hours. The movable stage Jazz Boat is one of the main attractions of the Liburnia Jazz Festival. Jazz Boat is a tourist boat which sails across the Opatija Riviera providing jazz concerts, fritters and cakes.
