TouRIst Bus
The best way to see the sights of the town

The easiest, most comfortable way to see the natural and cultural landmarks of the towns of Opatija and Rijeka is to buy a ticket for the hop-on-hop-off bus that will take you to precisely wherever you want to go.

The TouRIst Bus, for which the ticket remains valid for 48 hours, takes visitors to numerous sights in two very attractive towns: the old, fashionable resort of Opatija, and the dynamic town of Rijeka. These are very different towns regarding their attractions and the way people live there, but they also have much in common: rich history, varied cultural programmes, and high-quality tourist services tailored to meet the needs of different types of visitors. Information about the sights in both towns and wonderful views along the 20-minute ride from Rijeka to Opatija (or the other way round) is available in eight languages: Croatian, Italian, German, English, French, Russian, Spanish, and Hungarian. In addition to seeing the cultural and historical sights in Opatija and Rijeka, as well as the oldest Marian sanctuary in the Trsat Castle, the route of the bus was designed to meet the needs of modern guests who are also interested in shopping. This is why one of the stations of the TouRIst Bus is the Tower Centre Rijeka shopping centre.
The price of the adult ticket is 50 kuna, for children aged 4 to 12 years 35 kuna, and children under the age of 4 do not pay the ticket. The tickets remain valid for 48 hours after the first ride and can be used for as many rides as you wish in that period. The tickets can be bought at the Tourist Information Centres in Rijeka and Opatija. In the period from the beginning of July until the beginning of September, the TouRIst Bus drives according to the summer timetable.
