The cityscape of Rijeka, located on Kvarner Gulf, comprises a variety of influences -- from Italian to Austrian, Hungarian, and finally Croatian. You can see this most on display along the waterfront (Riva) or on the pedestrianized main street which runs parallel to the Riva called the Korzo. The Italian language is seeing a renaissance in Rijeka for the first time in three generations, as evidenced by bilingual Croatian and Italian street signs installed throughout downtown. Rijeka is home to the International Carnival, the largest pre-Lent Carnival in all of Croatia, which brings 120,000 visitors to view parades on the Korzo each winter. Due to the fusion of cultures and promotion of multiculturalism in Rijeka, the city has been named a European Capital of Culture for 2020.
