Kostrena is only a few minutes drive from the centre of Rijeka. If you come here in spring or summer, do not miss its 3 km long sea promenade and beautiful beaches where the sun goes down very late. This town is home to numerous Rijeka's seafarers and it jealously guards its long tradition of seafaring. The love for the sea has been passed down from generation to generation, so that many local families have several generations of seafarers or captains in their midst.
Above the town there are walking trails and well-maintained jogging trails where you can walk, run and enjoy the view, and then go back down to find refreshment in some of Kostrena's catering facilities located by the sea.
