Summary

Introduction

 

The sports complex is approximately 6km west of Rijeka city centre and sits on the Adriatic Coast. Rijeka is the principal port of Croatia, the country’s third largest city and was selected as the European Capital of Culture for 2020.

The sports complex is split into two areas only 500 metres apart.

Rijeka is an interesting city to visit as the deep water harbour made Rijeka a strategic target for invading forces over time. Much of the architecture and culture is influenced by those ruling countries.
