Rijeka is one of the most important sea ports on the Mediterranean, and the third largest city in Croatia, with about 200.000 inhabitants. Rijeka was founded on the northern coast of the Kvarner Bay below mountain ranges of Gorski kotar, and has always been an intersection of different cultures thanks to its transit position. Interestingly, at only 15 km from the city from the peak of ski slope „Platak“ (1.361 m) you can admire a view of the sea, and you can also spend your summer vacation by taking bath at the same crystal clear sea.
