Croatia Čakovec's umbrella installation

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
A colorful umbrella installation in my home town Čakovec was set in honor of the 51st annual cultural manifestation called Porcijunkolovo. During the manifestation the whole town is full of life presenting its region's cultural, gastronomical and historical traditions and values. This year (2018) the installation will be set from 28th of July until 4th of August.

Photography Tips

The best time to visit Čakovec is definitely around the 2nd of August during the Porcijunkolovo manifestation. The umbrella installation is the eyecatcher of the manifestation and you'll surely find a great angle to capture its beauty. During the day it is less crowded and easier to photograph, in the evening it gets a lot crowdier but you will still be able to get a decent capture.

Travel Information

The town Čakovec is situated in north-west of Croatia, close to Slovenian and Hungarian border. The umbrella installation is set in Katarina Zrinski Street.

Really nice, thank you very much for sharing. Just thought today, that there is a similar spot in Portugal that looks as cool as this one. :)

Thank you Manuel, the tradition of setting up the umbrella installation during this manifestation was started two years ago, the citizens can pick up an umbrella and paint it themselves, after the manifestation the umbrellas are sold and the money is donated to charity organizations.

It's really good to know that this is a temporary installation... totally makes sense, but didn't think about that when I first saw photos like this one. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us dear Mateja!
