Croatian Tradition on the World Stage

National Day of the Republic of Croatia at EXPO2020

On 6 March 2022, Croatia will be the centre of attention at EXPO2020 Dubai, and will demonstrate the richness of its cultural heritage through a series of music performances. Alongside the performances by LADO, the Croatian National Ensemble of Folk Dances and Songs, in the very heart of EXPO 2020, the Al Wasl Dome, the visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular projection show of the Croatian flag.

The programme consists of two parts, the protocolar one and the entertaining performances at different locations of the event. The presentation of Croatian intangible heritage will be marked by two major evening concerts, while smaller ensembles will additionally convey the atmosphere of folk customs through a series of daytime performances.
