Discover a city of history, culture and crazy fun! Walk the central town squares, Korzo, visit the Old Town, the Shrine to Majka Božja [Mother of God] on Trsat, and in the evening, visit the theatre, stop in one of the top restaurants and then finish the evening dancing to rhythms in one of the many clubs that guarantee a great night out...

The most recognisable image of Rijeka is surely Trsat, a medieval fortified town built by the Croatian Frankopan princes and the famous Marian shrine.

One of the largest Central European ports and until recently a powerful industrial centre, Rijeka provides many opportunities. Whatever you choose, you will be convinced: This city has an attractive tourist face. Famous for its many cultural and entertainment events such as the Rijeka Summer Nights, where musical-theatrical events are held throughout the city.

Rijeka carnival is one of the five largest carnivals in the world, where the interesting combination of old Slavic traditions and the urban carnival is similar to that in Venice. If you like the sea and boats, try out Fiumanka, an open style regatta. Or just walk down the city's waterfront, enjoy the architecture of the old palaces (Wohinz, Adria...), find peace in a beautiful sacred building (the Cathedral of sv. Vid), go back in time in one of the museums...
One of the biggest and most distinctive European carnivals is a special combination of European urban carnivals, relying primarily on Venetian and Austrian folklore elements and old Slavic mythology.

Starting with only three local carnival groups and a hundred participants in 1982, Rijeka Carnival has developed into an international event that now attracts over ten thousand participants from a dozen countries. Plunged into a centuries-old tradition, the International Rijeka Carnival has recently provided Rijeka, the region and Croatia with a distinctive event and an impressive happening frequented by many maskers, organized carnival groups, participants, spectators, media, and numerous invited guests from the country and abroad.
The torpedo as we known it was invented in 1860 by the retired Croatian officer of the Austro-Hungarian military navy, Rijeka’s own Ivan Lupis. It was presented to the public that same year in Rijeka, while the operating demonstration took place in 1866. The first factory to manufacture torpedoes was built in Rijeka and established by the English industrialist Robert Whitehead for the requirements of the Austro-Hungarian military navy.
