While Zagreb hosts the bigest SF/Fantasy convention "Sferakon", another hotspot in Croatia is the northern coastal region - a 50 kilometer stretch including Pazin, Opatija and Rijeka where the next three biggest conventions (Istrakon, Liburnicon and Rikon) are being held. And all of them are worth visiting. Liburnicon is the youngest of three, but it's quickly rising to fame due to ever-growing attendance, cool guests of honor (this year: Jacqueline Carey and Cheryl Morgan), and there's also the beach life during the day.
Liburnicon usually has some larp content, typically in the form of presentations - and this year there will be two presentations one after another - both on Saturday, August 24th.
First one will be about Terra Nova larp, it will be held by our players Ivana & Vesna (whom you might know in-character as Kolfinna and Sorqoqtani if you've been to Terra Nova). This short 30-minute presentation will be held in Atrium at 20:30. Immediately after, there will be a presentation about fallacies and realities of larp, presented by Ivo Turk in Librarium, lasting from 21:00 to 22:00.
The rest of the programming also has plenty of fantasy, role-playing, some re-enactment etc. - check it out here. (Last-minute changes to the programming are still possible so check it again when you come to the event)
If you're not attending Liburnicon and you're gonna be around Zagreb (or Bjelovar) that weekend, there's also an Elder Scrolls larp playtest on Saturday 24th - if you wish to attend, hurry up. Only two more days are left for the sign-ups!
