Bars & Nightlife in Rijeka

Capture the spirit of the city! Rijeka is a city that offers a wine-and-dine experience from early morning to late at night, providing plenty of opportunities for exploration, starting with the main city promenade of Korzo, which is lined with a plethora of terraces for resting and relaxed socialising, which is typical of the Mediterranean lifestyle. Coffee culture is carefully nurtured in Rijeka regardless of the occasion, whether as a morning routine, a get-together with friends and acquaintances or a way to unwind after a hard day's work. If you take a turn into the side streets and squares, which are sheltered from the daily hustle and bustle, or make your way further towards Trsat and other quieter parts of the city, you will discover the lovely ambience of the bars and pubs, which tell their own story through special programmes and a well-defined offering of drinks and the occasional snack. This range offers something for everyone, from an assortment of world-famous spirits, home-made "rakija" (fruit brandy), seasonal cocktails and craft beer to premium teas, freshly squeezed juices or a cup of first-rate coffee or top-notch wine.

In addition to the catering offer, this pub will pay close attention to the choice of music for all generations of Rijeka residents, but without turbo folk and other nonsense.

The ship received SOS signals from Titanic and headed to help. It reached the place after the ship had sunk and the rescue of the survivors lasted for four hours.

This was where the dairy cows that gave the people of Rijeka their daily “pinta” were kept and milked, and the milk was carried down by fair maidens as you see here. Grobnik is still famous for it’s cheese – grobnički sir – try it if you see it on the menu.
