Primorsko-goranska županija

Given its unique blend of the green and the blue, the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County is one of the most developed and one of the most attractive tourism destinations in Croatia. It encompasses three different geographical areas, the coastal area of Opatija Riviera, city of Rijeka and the circle of towns and municipalities surrounding it, as well as the Crikvenica-Vinodol Riviera, and then there are the Kvarner islands Krk, Rab, Cres and Lošinj, and finally the mountainous part of Gorski Kotar. In terms of tourism promotion, this diversity of the „green and the blue“ is called Kvarner. (

The Kvarner region enjoys enormous diversity from islands to wonderful coastline spots right into the interior and the fabulous green, mountain part, Gorski Kotar region.
Spring is a great time for walkers and cyclists as days are usually sunny, light breezes make walking and cycling pleasant. You can be on the beach one day and in the mountains the next, using just one base for your holiday, enjoying many different experiences and just a short drive between the sparkling blue Adriatic coast and the green hills and forests.
