A diverse landscape and a rich and varied natural environment awaits you. The sea, lakes, valleys and mountain summits merge in the region around Kvarner. Furthermore, endless paths invite you to hike, bike and discover. Immerse yourself in the magical underwater world, and the islands of the region are waiting for you to explore them. Charming little towns which nestle into the coast line await you during a little detour.
The picturesque Vinodol valley is a Mecca for paragliders; a relaxed break can be enjoyed in the labyrinths in the Novi Vinodolski outback – and 400 events held annually give this region a touch of internationalism coupled with tradition and customs.
We are happy to organise outings and excursions from the HOTEL KVARNER PALACE, for example to Triest, to Vrbnik on the Island of Krk or to the lakes in Plitvicer National Park. If you would prefer to explore and discover the region on your own, then we would be delighted to help you with your planning – so that your holiday with us in Crikvenica remains unforgettable.
Take a trip to the world-famous Plitvice Lakes which have been designated as a National Park since 1949, and since 1979 have also been included in the UNESCO World Heritage. Visit the filming location of the silver treasure from the Winnetou films during a walk through this unspoilt natural environment.
16 lakes await you in various shades of turquoise depending on the water level and the light incidence, thus creating a different natural beauty at each time of the year!
Try to listen out for birds close to the waterfall, you will notice that the water is so loud that it drowns out even the birdsong!
The Korzo (promenade) is not only the longest pedestrian zone, the main artery of Rijeka, but is also its reflection. Rijeka is reflected in the Korzo meaning that you can recognise Rijeka’s true face from the Korzo. Anyone who has ever drunk coffee on one of the many patios and picturesque cafés along this extremely unusual promenade will confirm this. Anyone who has ever sat on a bench or observed the lively street from one of the popular meeting places in the highest storeys of the buildings will likewise share this opinion. You can hear Rijeka’s typical walking rhythm which can be heard on the main boulevard of Rijeka regardless of the time of day. Thousands of sounds melt together here. This is the time in which cafés become clubs and laughter and music vibrates throughout the street.
The island has an area of around 400km² and is inhabited by approximately 18,000 people. The island is located in the Kvarner Bay south-east of Rijeka and has been connected via a bridge to the mainland since 1980. The bridge can be seen from the city centre in case of good visibility.
Panoramic trip along the coast. Drive along the longest bridge in Croatia – previously known as Tito Bridge – to the town Krk. Visit the Krk Cathedral, then continue to Punat Bay and the monastery island Košljun – to Jurandvor (admission 20.00 HRK). Visit the St. Lucia Chapel, Tablet of Baška (Glagolitza- Baška) and also one of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia. You will have a little free time in Baška. The return journey is via Vrbnik, known for its Žlahtina wine.
