Rijeka - Peek&Poke among the top 50 exquisite European destinations
The Rijeka museum of old computers Peek&Poke has found itself in the respected company of top attractions of European capitals such as Barcelona, Milan, Rome, Berlin and London, the beaches of Ibiza and the Venetian lagoons.

Peek&Poke was included among the 50 best European destinations in the recently published 50th edition of the low budget airline Ryanair magazine, coming in at number 19.

Under the title «Geek it up in Rijeka», the lifestyle-magazine of Ryanair reports how in Peek&Poke, a museum dedicated to computers, children can investigate old machines which were once used by their parents.

Ryanairmag points out that there are more than a thousand old computers and machines exhibited – from the oldest models of calculators to the IBMs and Sinclairs from the time Wham was topping the world charts, and they invite the readers to check out the retro souvenirs that are available in the museum.

Peek&Poke was voluntarily started by a group of computer enthusiasts, led by Svetozar Nilović-Toz, and the museum has been visited up until now by more than ten thousand visitors from every continent.

Along Rijeka`s Peek&Poke, the magazine recommends Brijuni islands and Zadar`s ‘The Garden’ club.

Apart from the exhibited models of the legendary Commodore 64 and Amiga, which function to this day and the Nintendo and Atari playing consoles, but also numerous other exhibits from the world`s and Croatian IT history, the team from Peek&Poke has through the years tried to attract guests with a string of programs which bring the museum to life.

The museum of old computers and information technology was opened in the centre of Rijeka in September of 2007. In the space of three hundred square metres there are over a thousand exhibits of Croatian and the world`s computer history which can also be tried out there.

The museum also has a modern NetKoner, decorated as a living room, and a reading room where you can find and read all of Croatia`s technical literature.

The idea of the founders, the Association of lovers of the Calculus computer, was to create a favourite gathering place for computer enthusiasts for education and fun.
