Croatia - Rijeka

Rijeka is the third largest city in Croatia and the largest Port and Shipyard, the closest Airport is on the Island of Krk only 32KM away. The name Rijeka (Reka) has been used since the 13th century.  By the 19th century Rijeka has developed into one of the biggest ports in Europe with numerous businesses and steamship companies founded. In the old part of the City, the clock tower was built in Baroque style in the 15th century which leads to the old town and to the "Old Gate" dated back to the 1st Century.
 

Kostrena (Rijeka)

Kostrena, placed at one end of the Bakarski bay, is some 10 km from the city of Rijeka. It is located at the south-western, slightly inclined part of the Kvarner coast, between the Martinscica inlet and the Cape of Srsica. Kostrena, part of the wider Rijeka area, has been inhabited since Roman times and has a centuries-old maritime tradition. Nowadays, on this part of the coast, there are swimming beaches and sports facilities in the bays of Zurkovo, Svezanj and Podurinj, while the place itself has a well-protected harbor. Kostrena is great for those looking for tranquility as well as sporting activities and entertainment due to the vicinity of Rijeka.

 

Bakarac (Rijeka)

Bakarac, located not far from Rijeka in the bay of Bakarac, is a place surrounded by green landscapes with spacious gardens in front of private holiday houses. There is a well-kept beach in the place itself. While in Bakarac, you can find accommodation in private rooms and apartments, as well in a motel or camping site. Since it is an old settlement, ruins of Roman buildings can be found above the place. Vineyards in the vicinity are fenced with the so-called "suhozid" - a special way of building walls of stone without the use of binding materials. This was necessary in order to keep the land from eroding. If you decide to spend this year's holiday in Bakarac, make sure to take part in the Fishermen's Festival (Ribarska festa) - you are sure to have a great time.
