Rijeka is in an exceptional location, at the point where the Adriatic Sea has entered the European coast furthest inland, and that is why the rich history of this city is tied to the sea. Rijeka is the third largest town in the Republic of Croatia, and is the main town of Primorsko-Goranska County. Because of its openness towards the outside world, the city is known for its hospitality. The influences of numerous cultures and nations can be seen in the town, and Rijeka has to this day remained a town of tolerance and coexistence.
For centuries, Zagreb has been a focal point of culture and science, and later also developed into a major centre of commerce and industry. Nowadays it is a predominantly outdoorsy town with a plethora of cultural and clubbing opportunities, which are some of the many reasons people of all ages flock to this dazzling capital.
