Sports entertainment event
Popolana, a distinctive three-day event, is filled with sports and recreational events, entertainment for children and adults and a wide selection of culinary delights, while its praiseworthy humanitarian character can be felt throughout the event. Proceeds collected from the sale of T-shirts and flowers are donated to charity, particularly to associations for people with special needs.
Children, recreational athletes, citizens and all visitors of Rovinj can try their skills in different sports: indoor rock climbing, indoor rowing competition, chess tournament, aerobics, basketball, electronic darts, nordic walking parade, cycling, a 21 km half-marathon or a 5 km recreational run.
Fish caught during the sports and underwater fishing competition is used for preparing culinary delicacies for all the participants of Popolana, the event which calls for a joyful gathering on a crowded Rovinj’s waterfront.
