Kvarner & Islands

The Kvarner region is definietely Croatia's best kept secret! The region starts on the north east coast of the Istrian just after the port of Brestova and includes the beautiful stretch of coast eastwards through Lovran, Opatija and to Rijeka and then encompasses the whole of the Kvarner Bay to the south including the coast near Crikvenica and the islands of which the best known are Cres and Krk.

The island of Cres is the least developed of the Kvarner islands where sheep roam wild and remains of stone Ilyrian villages remain. There are also catamaran connections to the smaller islands of Ilovik, Unije and Susak. 

The Kvarner region has the longest seaside promenade in Croatia which runs from Volosko (between Opatija and Rijeka) through Opatija and finishing at Lovran. It has some long pebble beaches and small coves. In the hills behind Opatija, the medieval town of Kastav is like something from a film set and offers great panoramic views across the Kvarner Bay. 

In 2020 Rijeka will be the European Capital of Culture and some great events are planned from big concerts at Trsat Castle to the ballet on the port's dock.
