Walking and hiking trails of Rijeka and surroundings
A city walk effortlessly turns into a walk along the sea, a day's walking along the forest paths or even the serious conquering of the mountain peaks from where the whole of Kvarner can be seen.
Rijeka and surroundings
Rijeka and the surroundings consist of a unique region which surprises with its natural, historical and cultural diversity. The pleasant Mediterranean climate has in many ways shaped the once royal town of Bakar, the important industrial port of Rijeka and the charming coastal towns of Kraljevica and Kostrena, whereas the mild continental climate has contributed to the forested areas of Jelenje, Klana, Kastav, Viškovo and Čavle. In the same day, it is possible to climb the peaks of the popular Grobnik Alps and then to descend to one of the numerous beaches on the coastal stretch between Rijeka and Kraljevica. The views of the grassy slopes, the Adriatic Sea and the little towns situated on the hills of the Rijeka and the surroundings are intertwined with the urban bustle of the city of Rijeka.
Once you take stop here, you will discover a relatively small, yet open and hospitable region where its layered history, dynamic traditions and busy everyday life are combined, there really is a lot of it on offer.
Bicycle terminals are available at four locations in the city – on the Adriatic Square, in front of the Youth Hall, on the pedestrian bridge over Rječina (on the Susak Bridge near Kont) and on the plateau of the garage of the Kantrida Pool.
