Blue & green riviera

Geographical location and climate

Only thirty kilometres away from Rijeka, the administrative centre of Kvarner, you can find tourist destinations on the Crikvenica-Vinodol Riviera dotted along the coast like pearls on a necklace, protected in the hinterland by the fertile Vinodol Valley. The riviera is characterised by a pleasant Mediterranean climate that provides dry and warm summers and mild winters. It can be easily reached from Central Europe, and thanks to its excellent geographical position and good road connections, it enjoys a century-long tradition of tourism.
