Discover a Port of Diversity and Croatian Monte Carlo


Tour of two most attractive towns in Kvarner Bay.
Rijeka's history is rich and powerful, intersecting between ancient history, industrial heritage and modern development. Because of that, Rijeka proudly stands as the European capital of culture in 2020.
Did you know that torpedo was invented in Rijeka? Or that Rijeka was one of the most important harbour for the Austrian - Hungarian Monarchy? How about the fact that Carpathia made her last stop in Rijeka before setting off to help sinking Titanic? Or maybe that Rijeka has 3rd biggest carnival in the world? This and much more will you discover on this tour with me.

What about Opatija - Old Austro - Hungarian Monarchy winter and health resort, today is one of the most elite destination in Croatia. Surrounded with villas, botanical gardens, mesmerizing views and 14 km long sea promenade, Opatija is called the Croatian Monte Carlo for a good reason.
Let me walk you through some incredible stories about my home town!
