"Spring in Fialta" focuses on a series of bizarre, random encounters between two individuals – so many, in fact, that it seems impossible to be the result of chance alone. The narrator is forced to wonder just what fate has in mind in bringing this pair together, over and over, by the oddest means and in the most unexpected places. The idea of fate thus pervades the story, rendering all of "Spring in Fialta" mystically deterministic (inevitable as a result of past events). Adding to this, the story’s ending is given away at the start. Because we know where we’re heading in the narrative, "Spring in Fialta" not only explores fatalism, but is fatalistic itself.
Nina and Victor are both victims of circumstance in "Spring in Fialta." Victor can not be blamed for his infidelities any more than Nina can be blamed for her death.
Nina’s fickle nature is to blame for all the tragedies of "Spring in Fialta," from Victor’s heartbreak to her own death.
