About Kvarner

Your own story

Kvarner is an inestimable combination of sea, islands and highlands in an exceptionally small space. In just one day you can sail by yacht or bathe in the sea and then enjoy in the shadow of the near-by woods in the hinterland. In winter you can ski with a view of the sea and then enjoy, just a few kilometres away, in a salt-water swimming pool, in relaxing wellness treatments or in long walks by the sea.
Kvarner is here, in your immediate vicinity and easily accessible, well connected with motor-ways, planes, ships and railway lines.
Kvarner is a wonderful image and an unforgettable experience. Your own story.

Diversity

Diversity is beautiful!

Wonderful beaches are waiting for you on the islands and along the coast, many possibilities to practice sports on water and land as well as entertainment of your choice. Here you can enjoy in the crazy rhythm of clubs for the young or listen to serenades on a hotel terrace, by the sea…taste specialties in slow food restaurants deserving international gastronomic acknowledgment owing to their quality, or eat fresh, just caught fish in a tavern… In the hinterland you will enjoy in mountain landscapes, pleasant summers and in a winter atmosphere seen only on old postcards. And one more thing: in winter, the Rijeka hinterland offers an unforgettable experience: you may ski or sleigh with a view of the sea! So many contrasts in the Kvarner region, so many different landscapes and experiences based on history, tradition and modern times.

Region

Kvarner is the destination for all seasons!

Irrespective of the season in which you come here, Kvarner will welcome you with a great number of events and possibilities for a high quality and interesting holiday. Even though it is most lively in summer, Kvarner will be an interesting destination in other periods of the year, too, especially attractive to those who do not like crowds and confusion but still offering a great number of manifestations, possibilities for walks, active holidays, participation in interesting workshops and enjoying in wellness facilities. We recommend everyone to study the rich calendar of Kvarner events not to miss those of special interest. Thus for instance the beginning of the year is influenced by the Carnival and its customs as well as the traditional carnival parades among which the most attractive, known even abroad, is the International Carnival of Rijeka. In March the Wellness Open Door Days will be expecting you and for the following months numerous manifestations linked to nature and ecology such as Asparagus Days, Cherry Days, Forest fruit Days, and the manifestation of Ružica Vinodolska (Vinodol Rose)….take place in the whole region.
In short, Kvarner is the destination for all seasons!
