Rijeka

The Bellringers (Zvončari)

more than a year ago
These scary chaps are called Zvončari. Hailing from the Kvarner coast, by dancing, merrymaking, and the loud ringing of bells hung from their belts, they chase away the evil spirits of winter. Depending which village they’re from, they wear masks of animal heads, or hats with streamers and flowers. See them at the famous Rijeka and Opatija carnivals, and herald the spring!
