City guide on mobile devices

Visitors to Rijeka, a resort town that continues to surprise with its cultural programmes, beautiful architecture and busy nightlife, now have extra help when touring the town – the AdriaGUIDE application, which facilitates finding the town's most attractive sights, making visits to this town even more pleasant and enjoyable.

AdriaGUIDE is the name of a new city guide application aimed at all visitors and inhabitants of Rijeka who want to explore this town and discover its most attractive sights in a simple way using their mobile phones (iPhone/iPad and Android) or GPS navigation (Garmin). The guide is available in Croatian, English, German and Italian languages and includes more than 300 points of interest in 12 basic categories: Sightseeing, Gastro, Accommodation, Entertainment, Public services, Sport, Shopping, Banks/ATMs, Services, Health services, Transport and Fuel.

All points of interest include photographs, descriptions and contact data. There are three types of navigation available for mobile devices: compass, map and directions. For visitors from abroad who use roaming services it is particularly important to say that the compass option has been developed to provide navigation free of charge.

In addition to information about Rijeka, the info menu includes data about weather forecast, currency exchange rate, traffic information and live pictures from the Rijeka bypass road. There is also the option to call important telephone numbers.
