Acroatia – Croatian Acrobatic Festival 2023

21.7.2023.-11.8.2023, River Mrežnica

01. Acroatia 2023

One of the biggest surprises for 2023 is that Acroatia will be 3 weeks long! They will be sliceable, so you can choose to come for 10 days or 3 weeks.

We hope that 3 weeks will give you enough time to arrive, find your place in the world, meet all the people, train without the fear of missing out on things, take a break when you need one, enjoy the river, go kayaking, and grow your practice with smart and responsible progressions towards your body. We would love it if you’d feel at Acroatia as we do, at home.

During the whole 3 weeks we have an intensive teaching schedule with simultaneous workshops for different levels. Standing acrobatics, L-basing, handstands, pre-breakfast yoga, conditioning, and floor acrobatics classes are all part of our 3 weeks! With safety longes to support those big high-flying dreams! And let’s not forget the relaxing and restorative bodywork sessions in the evening.

02. Location, location, location!

We don’t think it’s all about the location, but a lot of it is. After the mountains of Velebit we decided it’s time to come down and find a place close to the water, it is summer after all.

About the camp

We will be situated in the camp Slap, right where river Tounjčica flows into Mrežnica. The camp is hidden behind the trees, surrounded by greenery and rivers. Its remote location gives us a chance to dive deep into the training, sharing, and detaching from the buzzing of the city.

Facilities

The toilets are dry toilets and the showers are in the river (eco toiletries only!!!). Let’s repeat that one more time so that we are on the same page: there are no toilets vulgaris or showers with running water…just a very big bathtub. Electricity is scarce (wi-fi station will be provided) and you will need a torchlight.

Accommodation

We will sleep in a dormitory of a traditional old house, 2 small wooden houses, tents (you can rent one from us), vans, hammocks, or if you’re very adventurous, under the sky. We totally understand if this isn’t your jam, but please be sure this is an experience you’d like to have.

How to get there:

When traveling (finally) to Acroatia you want to aim first towards Zagreb. Afterward, you can choose between a train, a bus or renting a car. From Zagreb you aim for Ogulin. Traveling by train is slower than taking a bus. In Ogulin we pick you up. All the details will be provided in the welcome letter.

03. Teachers

Teachers at Acroatia are always people who inspire us, whose work we know first-hand, and who take their craft to the next level. It’s a colorful box filled with acrobats, facilitators, circus artists, and movement devotees.

05. Food

When you put together a friendly and kind personality and a magic touch for food you get Neven and Aleksandra, our wonderful cooks. They will cook for us during the whole festival, doing their best to keep your bellies happy.

If your heart and belly desire something specific, you are welcome to bring it and store it in the camp’s fridge. Have in mind that we are in the remote part of Croatia, so if you are looking for vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free products, you might not find them.
