Kvarner, another name for Primorsko-Goranska County, is one of the most touristically developed and most attractive tourist destinations in Croatia, which encompasses three different spatial wholes: littoral areas of the Opatija Riviera, the city of Rijeka and its ring, and the Crikvenica-Vinodol Riviera, then the Kvarner islands Krk, Rab, Cres and Lošinj, as well as the mountainous Gorski Kotar. Owing to, first of all, a unique blend of the coast, the islands and the mountains, the slogan of Kvarner is “Diversity is beautiful”.
