On Saturday evening Croatian President Zoran Milanović attended the costumed procession through this city 80 kilometres east of Zagreb.
The first edition of the annual festivities called “Terezijana” was launched 26 years ago. Every June since then, Bjelovar prepares this tourist and entertainment programme.
This year, the festivities are being held from 15 to 19 June, and feature regional rock and pop stars.
Typical meals of the local cuisine were also offered to visitors.
