Rijeka and Opatija
New welcome card!

For quite a while, the Kvarner towns of Rijeka and Opatija have been linked by the attractive hop on-hop off tourist bus, which will in future have a stop near the Rijeka Tower Centre. However, Rijeka and Opatija will soon have a common welcome card, which will make the stay in these two destinations even more interesting, pleasant and – cheaper.

The best way to learn more about the town of Rijeka and the nearby renowned holiday resort Opatija is to take a ride in the attractive hop on-hop off tourist bus, which now has a new stop near the Rijeka Tower Centre, one of the biggest shopping centres in Croatia, with an extensive range of shopping, fun and leisure opportunities for each taste. Rijeka Tower Centre includes several bars and approximately 150 shops with an attractive offer reaching from souvenirs to household articles and personal use items – therefore it is no wonder that this shopping centre is increasingly popular among visitors in other parts on Kvarner.
From 2009, the existing Rijeka Card, particularly interesting to visitors because it offers many advantages when using public transport, visiting cultural, gastronomic, and entertainment events, or shopping, can be used in Opatija too. The publishers of the card – Rijeka and Opatija tourism offices – had no problem finding shops and other venues to offer advantages, but rather how to ensure cards for all interested guests.
