Rijeka is the principal seaport and the third-largest city in Croatia (after Zagreb and Split). You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Girandella Beach and St. Vitus Cathedral. Go for a jaunt from Rijeka to Zminj to see Festinsko Kraljevstvo about 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Our Lady of Trsat's Sanctuary, look for gifts at Manufaktura Opatija, wander the streets of Veprinac, and don't miss a visit to Tunelri.

To find reviews, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Rijeka day trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Pula Airport, Zagreb Airport and Zadar Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
