Lovran - Marunada
Lovranski maroni so znani kot najkvalitetnejša vrsta kostanja na svetu. Gre za vrsto, ki je endemična v kvarnerskem okolju saj je nastala s križanjem domačih vrst kostanja in tistih iz daljnega vzhoda, katere so iz potovanj prinesli lovranski mornarji. Lovranci so na svoje marone še posebej ponosni, zato jim v mesecu oktobru posvečajo prireditev Marunada, ki se verjetno že 4 desetletja odvija v Lovranu in bližnjih vaseh Liganj in Dobreć. Na Marunadi so gostom na voljo jedi iz kostanja, tradicionalni pečeni maroni in jedi iz maronov, pa vse do različnih slaščic, kolačev in tort. To je prava gostija za sladokusce.

Prva Marunada je bila organizirana že leta 1973 in s časom je ta ljudska proslava, vezana na obiranje maronov ali kostanja, ki v izobilju raste v Lovranskih gozdovih kot tudi delu Opatijske riviere, prerasla v pravo turistično atrakcijo.

Ob zabavnem in gastronomskem programu v Lovranu na trgu Slobode in parkirišču Brajdice v bližini starega dela mesta, je bogata gastronomska ponudba na voljo tudi v lovranskih restavracijah in kavarnah hotela Excelsior in Lovran ter v kavarnah bližnjega mesta Opatija.

Marunada vključuje tudi športni del, ki je sestavljen iz športov, ki popularizirajo Park narave Učka, adrenalinsko tekmovanje Učka Mountain Trek, planinski pohod na Učko in mountain bike vožnjo od Lovrana do Lovranske Drage, Lignja in Dobreća. V Lovranu je organiziran tudi balinarski turnir in srečanje oldtajmerjev.

Letošnja po vrsti že 37. Marunada se bo odvijala od 15. do 31. oktobra. Lovran je mesto dolge in bogate zgodovine. Pod imenom Lauriana se naselje prvič omenja v VII. stoletju. Ime je dobilo po rastlini lovor (laurus nobilis), ki v izobilju raste v zimzelenih gajih v mestu in v okolici. Lovran je ohranil svojo zgodovinsko urbano jedro še iz srednjega veka.

Stari del mesta je bil obkrožen z obrambnim zidom in bastionom, na čigar temeljih in zidovih so s časom zgradili hiše.

Dobra klima, bujna mediteranska vegetacija in ugoden zemljepisni položaj so omogočili močen razvoj turizma v prehodu iz 19. v 20. stoletje. Lovran je od tega časa, poleg Opatije, najpomembnejše mesto slavne Riviere. Nekaj vil zgrajenih v tem obdobju se šteje v svetovno gradbeno dediščino.

Lovran se nahaja na vzhodni obali Iste v Kvarnerskemu zalivu. Nahaja se v vznožju najbolj zelene in z vegetacijo najbolj bogate planine na Jadranu – Učke, z morske strani pa gleda proti otokoma Cres in Krk. Od največje hrvaške luke Reka je oddaljen 19 km.
