Host Cities / Stage 5


Rijeka is a Mediterranean city, with the modern and urban environment and turbulent history, the largest port in Croatia and European Capital of Culture. The main artery of the city is the main city promenade. Above the river, there is Trsat where the medieval fortress offers spectacular views of the bay, and significantly and Shrine of Our Lady of Trsat.

Rijeka was once an industrial center, but today it is rich in valuable industrial heritage, among which is the launching pad for the torpedo that is, as the first in the world, designed and manufactured precisely in Rijeka in 1860.

The unofficial motto of the citizens of Rijeka is "I love city which flows".

Rijeka is a city worth a visit and experience the local way of life.
