Rijeka is located in an exceptional and strategic position, in a place where the view of the Adriatic Sea penetrates across the European coast farthest inland, and therefore the rich history of this city is related to the sea. Rijeka is the third largest city in the Republic of Croatia. It is also the capital of the beautiful Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. Due to its openness to the outside world, the city is known for the kindness and hospitality of its inhabitants. Most people speed up their journey to the island or to visit Dalmatia, but those who stop and spend time in Rijeka discover charm, culture, good nightlife, intriguing festivals and the most colorful carnival in Croatia and beyond.
