Rijeka at a glance
Europe’s Capital of Culture for 2020 offers numerous historical sites as well as cuisine influenced by the nearby Italy and Hungary. With its many beaches and large harbour, it’s earned its reputation as Croatia’s gateway to the Dalmatian Coast and islands.
Korzo, Rijeka’s main walkway, is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants, many with terraces where locals and tourists enjoy long afternoons and evenings eating, drinking and shopping. Korzo is dominated by the City Tower at the entrance of the fortified old town.
You probably didn’t know
The first time a torpedo was ever fired was in tests done in 1866 and it was from the Rijeka harbour. 2016 was the 150th anniversary of this technological invention, which also marked the opening of a major exhibition: ‘First in the world - 150 years of Rijeka torpedo’, held in a depot on Žabica Square.
