In pictures: why Rijeka is the most awesome city on the coast

Ever-rebellious Rijeka is easily the most alternative - and fun - city on the Adriatic coast

A parade of rain-smeared buildings with splashes of Habsburgian glamour, Rijeka isn't your typical seaside town. It remains one of the Adriatic’s main transport hubs, it’s central port providing Croatia with a window to the world. ‘Port of diversity’ is the guiding theme of its stint as the European Capital of Culture 2020, showing off the city’s multiculturalism and its maritime history. Take a look at this gallery to see what makes Rijeka so diverse.
