Rijeka 2020 has decided, in agreement with its partners, to cancel all events scheduled until April 14

All culture and art programmes and public events planned until April 14 as part of the Rijeka 2020 European Capital of Culture project have been postponed until further notice, Rijeka 2020, the company managing the project, said on Thursday.

A decision to that effect was made at a meeting of the partner organisations involved in the realisation of the project.

Given the developments with the spread of coronavirus and the fact that citizens' health comes first, Rijeka 2020 has decided, in agreement with its partners, to cancel all events scheduled until April 14, regardless of the number of people they would bring, a press release said.
