The Porin Awards, the most prestigious music awards in Croatia, will be held in Osijek on March 25 at the City Garden Hall. In addition to the central event, the Porin is preceded by numerous events called “Porin Week in Osijek”, featuring concerts, promotions, literary evenings, welcome evenings, and other gatherings that will be enjoyed by all participants and visitors, who will also have the opportunity to get to know Osijek and Osijek-Baranja County, reports Lokalni.Vecernji.hr.
“We are proud to host the 29th Porin Award, for the first time at the City Garden Hall. This event is extremely important for the City of Osijek and Osijek-Baranja County because it contributes to branding and positioning Osijek as a tourist and musical destination,” said Osijek Mayor Ivan Radić. Prefect Ivan Anušić emphasized that the City of Osijek and the Osijek-Baranja County have always proved to be quality hosts.

“We organized all the events at the highest level, with a big heart and hospitality. People who leave want to come back to our area. Advent in Osijek, which won the selection of the most beautiful in Croatia, is one of the reasons why we had such a large number of overnights and is an indicator of how we manage to organize events, but also a number of capital projects that develop this region, Osijek-Baranja County, and the largest city in eastern Croatia, the city of Osijek. We will host the best local musicians in the best possible way,” said Prefect Ivan Anušić.
An excellent music week awaits us in Osijek before the Porin awards.
“We are happy that we will come to the hall again and that Porin will come to life in the light it deserves, with top production and the best performers, musicians, authors, and producers. In addition to Porin itself, there will be Porin Week, from Monday to the event that will take place on Friday, where we will have various book presentations, concerts, and parties, in accordance with epidemiological measures that will be in force at the time,” concluded Porin CEO, Davor Drezga.
Osijek has already hosted two Porins – in 2005 and 2006. Porin will certainly contribute to better tourist results in the Osijek area this spring.
