Rijeka
It is located on Kvarner Bay, an inlet of the Adriatic Sea and has a population of almost 130.000 inhabitants.
Rijeka is the biggest Croatian port, and is also an important European port due to good traffic connections with the hinterland, modern port facilities and strong naval and commercial tradition. The development of the town increased by the construction of the road to Karlovac and the railway connections to Vienna and Budapest in the 19th century.
Today Rijeka is an important commercial and naval centre with developed industry (shipbuilding, oil refinery, diesel engines, ship cranes, ship equipment, paper, etc.) and it is also a cultural and artistic centre with a large number of cultural and educational institutions and schools.
The most recognisable image of Rijeka is surely Trsat, a medieval fortified town built by the Croatian Frankopan princes and the famous Marian shrine.
This city has an attractive tourist face. Famous for its many cultural and entertainment events such as the Rijeka Summer Nights, where musical-theatrical events are held throughout the city.
Rijeka carnival is one of the five largest carnivals in the world, where the interesting combination of old Slavic traditions and the urban carnival is similar to that in Venice.
