˝Balinjerada˝ in Opatija is a spectacle which has become a widely known brand, taking place this year during the summer season. This time, the city of Opatija, provided a special setting for a race that was held during the evening hours on a lighted race track, with a set of video screens where the audience could follow the entire race. The track is already well known, from Hotel Bristol to Slatina, and the opportunity to ride on the track was exciting for guests from around the world.
All participants competed, but unlike the winter Balinjerada, were only judged on their artistic impression, not on speed. The best received the rewards and prizes that were provided by numerous sponsors and donors.
Hotel Bristol prepared a special menu under the name ˝Food on wheels˝ in which we offered mini burgers, sauced ribs, fruit skewers and much more. This was also a great opportunity to promote our new lounge bar concept that opened on the terrace of Hotel Bristol. Our guests enjoyed some of the best cocktails and food combinations in Opatija featuring aromatic nargila scents, while enjoying the performance of the drivers, some experienced, some less experienced.˝Balinjerada˝ was all about fun, speed, good food and unforgettable moments.
