Čakovec Summer Highlights

20 Jun 2024

Dive into the magical world of Čakovec, where the past meets the future, and legends intertwine with rich tradition, creating a unique experience of a modern "once upon a time" moment. This city brings people together and offers plenty of gastronomic and etno offers, smiles on faces and the feeling of being at home.

"Čakovec weekend" combines all the programs Čakovec offers from Thursday to Sunday and is published every Wednesday at noon on social channels and on the website.
In addition to the variety of programs, in which everyone can find something for themselves, the location of Čakovec (an hour away from the capital of Croatia, Zagreb, and 3 hours from Ljubljana and Budapest) makes it an ideal weekend escape from everyday city stress. We cannot offer you a "sun and sea" package, but we can certainly offer you the sun and the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, which you can round off by getting in a round at the nearby mini golf course. Playing tennis on the courts of one of the oldest clubs in Croatia — TK Franjo Punčec — is something you can't really do everywhere. An essential part of your trip is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city to a peaceful and green oasis that stretches down Perivoj Zrinski and is located in the very centre of the city. Let the colourful gastronomic aromas take you to the right gastronomic corner, and connect your impressions in a memorable story with a coffee in the atmosphere of old buildings, where drinking routine coffee will acquire a special and new charm. Therefore, bring your cameras, record your thoughts, and share your story on social networks because Čakovec is a place that you will fondly remember, and one day you will return to it.

Autumn in Čakovec, September 27 - 29, 2024.
The straw adventures of our kindergarten groups turn the city into a fun outdoor exhibition with their imagination through hand-made "scarecrows" that bring a smile to everyone's face (and keep the birds away). The aromas of various delicacies from local producers tempt you to try something new at every step, while various handicrafts in every home will bring that true traditional touch of the Međimurje region. The rich program for children brings new smiles to their faces every year, and the sound of laughter and joy extends throughout the entire park. Autumn in Čakovec is an ideal weekend for creating some new memories.

JazzFair, November
The diversity of musical genres has always permeated the streets and homes of the city of Čakovec and the areas of Međimurje County. Music connects us and is certainly one of the main points of any event, whether public or private. We are proud witnesses of how the Međimurje popevka (a regional song) was included in the UNESCO list of intangible cultural assets of humanity. Various guest appearances by popular musicians and their great response prove that Čakovec lives music and composes those special notes through its soul. This year, Čakovec celebrates 30 years of hosting the Jazz Fair.
