Kvarner Gulf

Major Cities and Islands
Rijeka, Croatia`s third-largest city, is a gateway to the islands. It offers an interesting mix of gritty port and Habsburg grandeur, with charm, culture, good nightlife, intriguing festivals and Croatia`s most colorful carnival.
Opatija, eight miles west of Rijeka, sprawls along the coast between forested hills and the sparkling Adriatic, the whole waterfront is connected by a promenade. It was the most fashionable seaside resort for the Viennese elite during the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire with many beautiful belle époque villas still remaining.
Krk Island is one of the two largest islands off the coast of Croatia, exactly equal in size to nearby Cres Island. Krk Island is connected to the city of Rijeka by the Krk Bridge. The largest town on the island is Krk, on the southern coast. Krk flourished from the time of the Romans, when it was known as Curicum.
If you are looking for an off-the-beaten-path travel destination, look no further than Pag Island, which boasts the longest coastline of any of the Croatian islands (167 miles). Looking at the hills above the island`s settlements, you will notice a landscape that looks not unlike the surface of the moon. It is well-known for its nightlife, centered around Novalja.

Combine Croatia With
WHY THE KVARNER GULF?

Squeezed between the Istrian Peninsula to the west and Dalmatia to the southeast, the Kvarner Gulf offers many of the Croatian coast`s highlights: grayish coastal hills and mountains, an archipelago of ochre-grey islands and fishing villages with narrow alleys and gardens groaning under the weight of subtropical plants. In the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the wealthy built holiday homes here, bestowing places like Rijeka and Opatija with a rich legacy of stately Habsburg-era architecture. From both of these cities you can easily connect to hiking trails inside Ucka Nature Park and Risnjak National Park. The islands of Krk, Cres, and Pag are just a short car or ferry ride away; their landscapes are beautiful and their towns and villages are worthy of in-depth exploration.
