Rijeka is a very famous Croatian port city, which lies in the Quaverian Bay. The city has about 130000 inhabitants, if we include the entire surrounding agglomeration then a little over 300000 permanent residents. It is the most important town in the northern part of the Croatian Adriatic.
For us, it is known not so much as the end destination of our summer holiday, but as the destination of trains heading from our stations to Croatia.
