ABOUT RIJEKA

A citiy to remember!

Due to its natural and geo-political characteristics , Rijeka is located at ideal point of Adriatic sea for harbour and shipping center development. This is what makes her important business, trade, industrial, transit and cultural center in the western part of the Republic of Croatia.

Rijeka is the seat of the Primorsko-goranska County, a region wich consists of an unusual link between the sea and mountains extending to the Mount Učka across to the Goran mountains as far as the Velebit. To the West of Rijeka, lies Opatija Riviera, the oldest and most popular Croatian tourist region. To the east is the Crikvenica-Vinodol Riviera. Rijeka can thank Gorski Kotar – the most preserved part of the region – for its quality drinking water and its clean air.
