Rijeka was formerly the most important town of Croatia. Today it is still the country's largest port and a hub of tourism in the Adriatic. While it may seem somewhat unappealing at first glance, a closer look will reveal some fine examples of Austro-Hungarian architecture. The best time to discover it is undoubtedly the festive carnival period.
