The carnival is listed among the 500 most important European events - „top 500 European events“, while the Sunday Times called it the most exotic event in the world. In 2009 it was listed in the book „501 must be there events“ , and in 2010 Rijeka Tourist Community won the award „Golden Tourist Heart“ as the organiser of the best tourist event in south-eastern Europe in 2009.
