Rijeka is the main port city of Croatia. It is situated in the northernmost part of the Adriatic coast with undeniable geo-strategic advantages which allow it to be an important maritime gateway of the Mediterranean for East Europe. Formerly known as an industrial city, Rijeka has recently turned into development in the fields of transport, trade and tourism. With its rich cultural heritage it is looking to promote itself as a cruise destination in the Adriatic Sea. As a part of the extension of the port infrastructures, the city has engaged in the re-composition of its city port interfaces in order to provide a renewed living environment.
