If you want a beach which is chilled and relaxed look no further. Whilst busy it does not feel it. Water is crystal clear and snorkeling is great. Plenty of water sports activities for those who want them. Hire a sunbed and umbrella for 2 people around euro 15 a day. Well worth it.

Peperoncino was closed in February, but the owner invited us in for a drink. A very friendly guy, with an idea: to present best small production produce from the area. He has excellent olive oil, wines, beer from small Breweries, fig marmelade, truffles... I highly...MoreThank you so much for this lovely review! Hope to see you again!

It's a 100 something old, from the times of the last austrian emperor, seafront walkway from Volosko to Lovran. It takes about 3 hours of high paced walk one way. Now in january is quite windy and the waves chrash below it, but it' not crowded like in summertime. Beautiful.

Discover the beauty of Ucka Nature Park and artworks in places in which you would least expect them! This trail is combination of artistic interventions in the land art and rock art forms, and the natural beauty of Mt. Cicarija and its southern areas around the cliffs and pastures. This is the conceptual project of artist Boris Pecigos to raise awareness about connection between man and nature.
This trail is an interesting experience of art and nature, rarely seen in such a combination. Bring your camera 'cause you would like to take pictures by many land art works, and vivid and colorful rock art works in beautiful nature. The trail is easy, suitable even for kids or elderly people. You can walk in snickers, but hiking equipment (shoes, walking sticks) are beneficial. Enjoy the mountain beauty, the art... and after this experience, you can easily drive to the coast and enjoy swimming in the Adriatic sea.
The description from the brochure follows:
"Stražica – Sapaćica Land Art Trail has been opened in July 2016, two years after the initial idea, and completed by the end of the year. It is located on Ćićarija mountain in the Učka Nature Park, Croatia.
Discover the natural beauty of the Ćićarija mountain and artworks in places in which you would least expect them!
This circular trail is a combination of artistic interventions in the form of land art and the natural beauty of Ćićarija, i.e. its southern areas around the cliffs of Stražica and the pastures of Sapaćica.
The guiding idea behind the trail, which is the conceptual project of Croatian artist Boris Pecigoš, is to raise awareness of the importance of the connection between man and nature. Man is, regardless of the alienation and bustle of today’s way of life, an inseparable part of nature. Although by his very existence he has an influence on nature and changes it, he can learn to follow the rhythms of nature and respect other creatures that share this planet with him.
As you walk, inhale the fragrance of the forest, listen to its sounds, feel the moist soil under your fingers, caress the soft moss, hug a tree, let the sun caress your skin, soak in the lush greenery and feel the powerful energy of nature around you. You don’t need to search for feelings of oneness with nature because they will come spontaneously. It is only important that you are present.
Don’t forget to look for the land art, that will prompt you to contemplate and meditate. Stand in silence, feel nature and connect with it as you observe the artistic work. Touch the handprints that are situated on some pieces of art, and make contact with nature. Feel the effect of nature on your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Think about your relationship with nature and become aware of your connection with all things created. Breathe as one with nature.
Land art is today a very diverse art form. The works are created in the very nature using natural materials found in situ (stone, gravel, soil, tree trunks, branches, leaves, snow, water… ). Sometimes artificial materials are introduced. Painting the rocks with eco-friendly paints, as is the case in some of the works on this trail, is called the rock art. The land art works are situated in the open air, located far from civilisation, left to change and disintegrate under the influence of natural forces.
Land Art as an art movement emerged in the 1960s in the US. Still, the cave drawings, megaliths, geoglyphs and petroglyphs of the ancient tribes, show that from the beginning of humankind this sort of expression has been inherent to man."

Trsat Castle represents a strategically embossed gazebo on a hill 138 meters above sea level that dominates Rijeka. As a parochial centre it was mentioned for the first time in 1288. Trsat Castle is one of the oldest fortifications on the Croatian Coast, where the characteristics of the early medieval town construction have been preserved. Today Trsat Castle, beside the Bazilisk souvenir shop and the Gradina coffee bar, is enriched with new facilities – gallery space where art Exhibitions are held as well as open-air summer Concerts and theatre Performances as well as fashion shows and Literary evenings. Within Trsat Castle, at the Petra Zrinskog b.b. Address, is the Trsat Castle Info Point where any information about this building and the town of Rijeka can be found.
So extremely beautiful during Christmas & NY time, breathtaking! Perfect lights and decorations followed with beautiful music, if you're in Rijeka at this period this place is a must!

Beach and sea is nice but too many people think that. It was very crowded but we didnt mind. We travelled in Opatija and Rijeka couple of times in the evenings because they are not so far. Excellent place

Souvenirs you can’t leave Croatia without! An important part of travel experience is bringing a small token of your travels home with you to remind you of the wonderful time you had exploring new lands and cultures. Stemming from the Old French word, souvenir means exactly that - to remember. Their collection of souvenirs & home decor items are pieces of art and timeless treasures indeed.
Старый город небольшой, но очень аутентичный. Место однозначно стоит того, чтобы его посетить. Все достопримечательности имеют QR-код, там же фри вайфай, поэтому проблем с изучением окрестностей не возникнет. Очень чисто и красиво, узкие улочки, там же море цветов и фруктовых деревьев. Отличные ресторанчики и чистейшее море. Русскоговорящего народа практически нет.
Магазин очень интересный, цены для такого уровня и месторасположения очень гуманны.
