High temperatures, that are common in Rijeka for few weeks, will be heating us for next seven days at least. See here detailed weather forecast for Rijeka

Also, sea temperature is high and perfect for swimming. We reccommend following beaches in Rijeka and surrounding areas:
Kantrida (western part of town – concrete, pebble)
Opatija (15km from Rijeka – concrete, pebble)
Kostrena (5km from Rijeka – lots of small, hidden, pebble beaches)




There are also beautiful beaches on island Krk and Cres, Mošćenićka Draga (small village on Istrian coast) and toward Senj – southern from Rijeka. To reach them we recommend bus lines.

Here is schedule: bus company – “Autotrans”

Island Krk is with bridge connected to mainland, but Cres can be reached with ferry boats from two sides:
1. Brestova – Porozina (ferry boat line from Istrian peninsula)
2. Valbiska – Merag (ferry boat line from island Krk)

Here is schedule: ferry boat company – “Jadrolinija”


From today till tomorrow (13. April) lasts Rijeka Adventure Festival 2008, sport manifest that promotes outdoor sports and adventure. In last few years Rijeka became Croatian «adventure» centre, known outside Croatia, so this year there will be also competitors from Slovenia, Austria and Poland.



Main event will be 2-days KI-Challenge race, starting in Rijeka and passing through Kvarner bay, Učka and Ćićarija. This 150km long route will include following disciplines: trekking, kayak, mountain biking, orientation, speleology and going down with a rope.


Through these two days, in town centre, by the sea is placed huge artificial rock, on which climbers will participate in sport climbing Rijeka Open 2008. Part of the rock will be open for all people that would like to try climbing.

Bad weather again over Rijeka and Kvarner

Unfortunatelly, after 5 beautiful, sunny days, bad weather is back. Strong wind caused problems in sea traffic, and temperature went down. The only good thing were moments when sun decided to spice boring grey with its lights dancing upon sea surface.
