Just 5 km away from Rabac, the pearl of Kvarner, lies the town of Labin. Labin is historically significant for its coal mines and today it takes pride in its history and culture, which has grown and developed along with the town.Located on a hill in the town is the Labin Old Town, the proud host of the 17th annual Labin Art Republic - a festival that brings together various artists and musicians, actors and performers, singers and entertainers. They will all entertain visitors throughout July and August, creating memories that will last them a whole year. This year's Labin Art Republic program boasts renowned musicians and interesting exhibitions by various artists, while Labin art summer regulars, RI Theatre, will perform theatre plays for all ages.
In addition to the Labin Art Republic programs, this year, entertainment will be provided by mainstay events, such as the Summer Carnival, which will kick off a long and eventful summer in Labin, followed by the Feast Day of St. Peter and Labin Night, when the sounds of famous Croatian musicians and bands will echo throughout the town, while jazz aficionados can look forward to the Labin Jazz Festival, which will be held from 10 to 12 July. For a few hours, clowns, jugglers, performers and acrobats will try their best to make children smile and spark the imagination and inspiration of adults with their performances in the squares and streets as part of the Labin Street Magic event.
"A festival within a festival" - Shpeena Dox is an important and universally beloved feature of the Labin Art Republic program. This year it will once again offer carefully curated Croatian and international documentaries over a period of three days, from 18 to 20 July. This year's Labin Art Republic program will culminate on 29 August with an ethnic music concert performance by Loell Duinn and an audio-visual show that will leave even the most demanding visitors in awe.
