Kvarner Gulf is located between the Istrian peninsula to the north and Dalmatia on the south. Squeezed between giant mountains, hills and clearly blue Adriatic Sea, Kvarner gulf is home for most of the Croatian islands.
Rijeka, city of culture. Croatian largest port, busy and energetic, filled with hedonistic people. While she offers you all the thrills of modern world, just short car ride would magically transfer you in peacefulness and bliss of islands.
Island of Rab with sandy beaches of almost Caribbean proportions, bringing holiday energy to every new visitor. Just half an hour drive from Rijeka is Krk, connected to the mainland by a road bridge, gorgeous island filled with many cities, with its lovely long pebble beach in Baška, you don’t even need to board a boat.
The region’s best known and oldest tourist destination is Opatija, with its 19th-century villas, lush gardens filled with palm trees, and upmarket waterside seafood restaurants. All different, but easy-going places, little frequented by tourists and pleasant to stroll around. Places where you can just buy olive oil straight from the local market. Where you can blend in, relax and forget about everything and just enjoy the life. And live in the moment!
