Time Out says
As your bus draws into Rijeka, pretty much the first thing you see towering alongside is this unusual architectural combination that is Our Lady of Lourdes, aka the Capuchin Church. Constructed over nearly three decades in the early 20th century, the church is best known for its distinctive brickwork in alternating colours, and the elegant twin staircase. Scale it, and you are afforded a view of the nearby seafront. If you’ve just arrived, it also allows you a chance to get your bearings.
