The International Flower Exhibition
Italian San Remo has its own “Fiesta dei fiori”, French Nice has its ''Fete fleure''. It is only logical that Split, whose symbol and whose name comes from a specific kind of flower (Spanish broom), also cherishes its rich horticultural heritage. So the Flower Exhibition became a characteristic of Split’s May and now celebrates its 30th anniversary. Is there a better place for such an international event than the Diocletian’s Cellars? Because of their monumentality and beauty, but also for their climatic conditions which are ideal for exhibiting, they are a unique location for this exhibition and flowers’ presentation. Different competitions are also part of the annual programme. Especially attractive are florists’ competitions that differently feel the flowers and treat them with respect. Their work is normally considered art.
Besides, the headquarters of the European Flower and Environment Association’s office is located in Split. It is also important to mention that Croatia is the only country out of the European Union that is a member of that international organization.
