Rijeka is a complex post-industrial town, fiercely contested throughout history due to its strategic position. With only around 130.000 inhabitants, it is a small city on a European level, yet third largest in Croatia. As it is the largest port in the country, its economy mainly relies on shipbuilding and maritime transport. Located in the Kvarner Bay of the Adriatic Sea, it is the main city of the Primorje Gorski Kotar County and its economical, administrative and cultural centre.

Rijeka was awarded the prestigious title of the European Capital of Culture 2020 for its programme “The Port of Diversity”. The goals of the project are to improve the scope and variety of Rijeka’s cultural offer, expand accessibility and participation in culture, build capacities in the culture sector and strengthen its ties with other sectors, and boost Rijeka’s international visibility as well as the city’s and region’s profiles.
