The Kvarner area is known for its blend of the Mediterranean, sub-Mediterranean and, on the other side, mountain-valley climate. This combination of the sea and the mountains enables the growth of vegetative resources. The region is known for its mild climate, and in the vicinity there are a number of health resorts. Breathe in a little health yourself, and here are several walking paths in the city centre and the surrounding areas.
In the heart of the city there is the Theatre Park
