With its Hapsburg-era architecture, azure waters, and breathtaking National Parks, Kvarner Bay has always been a low-key favourite for tourists and locals alike. You’ll find the Kvarner Bay nestled in the gulf between the east Istrian peninsula and the Croatian mainland. The principle cities are Rijeka, the gateway to Croatia’s islands, and Opatija, a fashionable and ornate seaside town. The Bay also encompasses many idyllic islands, such as Cres, Krk, Rab, and Pag. You’re sure to discover your own private paradise on one of the many beaches.
