Sports entertainment event
The most exciting active weekend in Rovinj awaits you at the end of April, just the right time for spring awakening. 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.
Friday is dedicated to the younger participants and is reserved for a recreation and entertainment program that is suitable for kindergarten age children, whilst the sport and recreation program is aimed at Rovinj's sport schools. Saturday morning starts with a competition in underwater and sport fishing, and continues with a joint work out, cycling or chess tournament.
Careful hands will have the possibility of trying out electric darts, and younger generations can take part in tennis, street basketball, mini handball and a demonstration of martial arts.
Sunday is a day for true runners when, together with the 1 km and 5 km long children’s and amateur’s races, the spectacular Rovinj half marathon takes place.
It will take runners through the town centre and through the woods by the sea bays and will enable participants to encounter Rovinj and its surroundings in a demanding, but rather beautiful way. A half marathon usually leaves the majority of people breathless, and you are certainly going to be even more so when you encounter the natural beauties along the 21 km long run.
The entire event is of a humanitarian character and all proceeds will be donated to the Association of People with Disabilities of the Town of Rovinj, and you are sure to get smiles with your participation from all those involved.
Breathe in the spring with us, see you in Rovinj!
