Kvarner is distinguished by its unique diversity, from Učka Mountain massif to the indented coast of the Adriatic Sea. It is a small region where mountains blend with islands and the sea, a mild climate with lush vegetation and history with the present.

Full of contrasts, Kvarner is a place where almost every wish can be fulfilled. Within a single day, you can hike in the mountains or walk in the woods and then take a swim in the sea or go sailing. You can take in snow and the sea at the same time; you can eat seafood specialties in the morning and enjoy mountain dishes in the afternoon.

Whatever preferences you might have – be it adventures, wellness, food or history – Kvarner can offer something that will leave you breathless. Its beautiful scenery, culture and the traditions of numerous peoples that left their trace here have turned Kvarner into a precious jewel worth seeing and experiencing.
