Every summer Ružica Vinodola (Vinodol Rose) is celebrated in Vinodol and Novi Vinodolski.
The tradition of electing the Vinodol Rose is more than a hundred years old, dates back to the times when the Frankopan family ruled. The story goes that when harvesting was completed the most beautiful and most diligent of the harvesters used to be elected. She was then wreathed with wine grape - a kind of symbol that in this area wine-growing has always had special importance – and went to town at the head of the procession.
