Trip Summary
2 nights in Pula

Pula is one of the oldest cities in Istria, having been settled since the Bronze Age over 3,000 years ago. The Romans, capitalizing on Pula`s location on a safe harbor, quickly built the settlement into a cultural center called Pietas Julia. A number of beautifully-preserved Roman buildings survive and stand today. The best-preserved Roman monument in Croatia, the Pula Arena, is located here. Other noteworthy sights include the Temple of Augustus, the Gate of Hercules, and the Arch of the Sergii. Other sights include the Austrian-era Fort Bourguignon, the hill settlement of Nesactium, and Aquarium Pula, the largest aquarium in Croatia.

2 nights in Rijeka

The cityscape of Rijeka, located on Kvarner Gulf, comprises a variety of influences -- from Italian to Austrian, Hungarian, and finally Croatian. You can see this most on display along the waterfront (Riva) or on the pedestrianized main street which runs parallel to the Riva called the Korzo. The Italian language is seeing a renaissance in Rijeka for the first time in three generations, as evidenced by bilingual Croatian and Italian street signs installed throughout downtown. Rijeka is home to the International Carnival, the largest pre-Lent Carnival in all of Croatia, which brings 120,000 visitors to view parades on the Korzo each winter. Due to the fusion of cultures and promotion of multiculturalism in Rijeka, the city has been named a European Capital of Culture for 2020.

With a population of 20,000, Krk is the most-populous island in the Adriatic Sea. The largest town on the island is Krk, on the southern coast. Krk flourished from the time of the Romans, when it was known as Curicum. Krk is home to the Baska tablet, one of the oldest written examples of the Croatian language, dating from 1100. In addition to Krk and Baska, other noteworthy towns and villages on Krk include Vrbnik, Malinska, and Omisalj.

Looking at the hills above the island`s settlements, you will notice a rocky landscape of karst and salt that looks not unlike the surface of the moon. In recent years, young travelers have flocked to Pag not only for its Instagram-worthy panoramas but also for its nightlife, most notably clustered around Zrce Beach near Novalja. In addition, Pag is well-known for its sheep`s milk cheese, its lace production, its salt fields, and its numerous vineyards.
