According to the last census conducted in 2011, 17,785 members of the national minorities live in the city of Rijeka and they represent 13.83% of the city’s population.

The national minorities take part in the city’s public life through the councils of national minorities and through their associations that take care of the language, customs, culture and folklore of the national minorities that have a long tradition of activity in Rijeka.

The City of Rijeka is particularly proud of its already traditional manifestation “Ethno Review” where the associations of national minorities take part together with their guests and during several days while the manifestation lasts, they represent the language, culture and customs of their national minority.
