Thanks

definitely Opatija riviera, with a lunch in Volosko (2 of the top 10 Croatian restaurants are in its old fishing port or 'mandrač')... after a walk along the sea :) enjoy!

Thanks guys.

So Rijeka itself doesn't offer much to see?

for some nicer scenery, Opatija riviera is it. but to do no injustice to Rijeka, there is a lovely pedestrian zone in the centre, Korzo, and also the Trsat castle, with an ancient Roman temple, and above all a beautiful view of the Kvarner bay. when thinking of Rijeka, though, the first thing that comes to mind is 'port' - it's a business city, with the usual daily biz buzz. hence the recommendations for Opatija... check more on Rijeka at www.tz-rijeka.hr/en/Home.aspx?PageID=61

Happy summed it up about Rijeka. I would add green and fish market (early in the morning!), the Theatre, the Governor's palace and the buildings of the Court and the prison. :) You can see most of these in my MTB Street view movies from Rijeka. Perhaps start here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7VTsHBfvYs.

Also, if you're a football fan, you should visit the FC Rijeka's stadium in Kantrida (bus #1 and #32 from the ciry centre). It's pretty much in the sea, very interesting.

But yes, Opatija and Volosko are the usual choice. And I have many movies for the entire region, so feel free to browse.
