Cruises from Rijeka
Rijeka (aka Fiume, Reka, Rika, all meaning ‘river’) is the deep water seaport of Croatia, located in an inlet of the Adriatic Sea. Historically it has been subject to many fierce and horrible disputes. The city’s economy depends on ship building, though this is now turning towards services and tourism. Until recently it has mostly been a transit point to other destinations.
In a city tour, visitors can view the Palace Adria and a host of other attractive and historical buildings, wide streets, and parks. The beautiful Maritime and History Museum recounts the history of ship building in Roman times down to the present.
