Kvarner Expo 2011 in Opatija
A central place for Croatian souvenirs

Each year before Easter, Opatija traditionally hosts Kvarner Expo, a large exhibition of Croatian souvenirs. Running from the 20th to the 23rd of April, Kvarner Expo 2011 gives visitors a superb opportunity to select from the wide range of original Croatian souvenirs.

For the eighth year in a row, visitors who came to Opatija before Easter are invited to Kvarner Expo, a large exhibition of Croatia's best souvenirs. This year, the exhibition will take place from the 20th to the 23rd of April on Opatija's beach of Slatina.
Each year, Kvarner Expo includes a large number of exhibitors from all over Croatia who use this opportunity to present their original souvenirs reaching from modern designer items and original household items to jewellery and much more.
