Summer in Lovran and Medveja
Let's dance!

To make visiting here even more pleasant and enjoyable, Lovran and Medveja have planned several attractive programmes and summer festivals entitled Summer in Lovran and Summer in Medveja.

From mid-June until end of August, the old town of Lovran, more precisely St. John's Square (Trg Sv. Ivana), St. George's Square (Trg Sv. Jurja), and the Church of St. George (Crkva Sv. Jurja), as well as terraces of Lovran's hotels and villas, will host the attractive programme of the 16th Summer in Lovran. The festival will include concerts of classical music, traditional vocal groups "klape", choirs, wind orchestras, and tours aimed at learning more about local heritage. All that with one aim – to provide additional attractions for visitors to Lovran and make their stay here even more pleasant and enjoyable.
Visitors to Lovran will have the chance to choose from a wide range of other attractive events. In addition to concerts on aforementioned locations, Lovran's seafront will host various theme evenings – fish festivals with eminent Croatian musicians (on 1st and 22nd July and 4th and 19th August), and the event called "Adriatic Encounters" ("Jadranski susreti") on the 5th of July. Apart from various concerts, terraces of Lovran's hotels will host the attractive Magic Show (on the 13th and 27th of July) and the popular DJ party in the style of Studio 54 (every Wednesday in August).
