Rijeka, which participates in the Croatian Towns and Districts Friends of Children Initiative, in its centre, as well as in its immediate vicinity, offers amenities that will enrich the stay of both parents and children. Here are some suggestions for spending time with your loved ones:

  • If you are staying in private accommodation, you can look into our catalogue and find which facilities offer amenities for children’s play and leisure.


  • Visit the Trsat Castle, immerse yourself in the past together and relax in a cafe while your children reveal its secrets. Come to Trsat by a colourful touRIst bus.


  • The Astronomical Centre Rijeka and its observatory will entertain and educate both children and adults, and the view of the entire bay will be something you’ll all remember.



  • Take a walk together and discover Rijeka and its attractions, take a peek into the museums, among which the Natural History Museum, PEEK+POKE Museum of Childhood and Museum of Informatics and Technology will certainly be the most interesting choices for your young ones. For more details use your mobile phone and read the QR codes you come across on the sights of Rijeka.



  • While discovering Rijeka, you can rest in one of its parks. Take a break while your kids have fun on the playground.


  • Find something for yourself and your entire family in one of the shopping malls, take your memories with you with one of Rijeka’s souvenirs, and go through the shops in the centre.


  • If you are in Rijeka during the summer, choose from one of the beaches suitable for children such as Glavanovo, Sablićevo or Ploče, the most popular beach of Rijeka, with a variety of amenities. If your family includes a four-legged member, there are two beaches were dogs are allowed.


  • In colder months, the Kantrida swimming pool complex is an excellent substitute for the sea, and it is unique due of its proximity to the sea and a sunroof that opens in warmer weather.


  • In only a half an hour drive you can get to Učka, Platak or Gorski Kotar. If there is snow, do not miss the sledging.
