Car Hire Omisalj-Rijeka Airport
Rijeka Airport is located near the town of Omišalj on the island of Krk, 17 km from the heart of Rijeka railway station. The airport is used predominantly in the summer months by European budget carriers flying tourists to the northern parts of the Croatian coast. The airport serves about 24,000 passengers annually, with a range of exclusively seasonal flights to destinations including Riga, Frankfurt, London Heathrow, and Oslo-Gardermoen.
The port city of Rijeka lies at the heart of the Kvarner region of Croatia, between the sheltered Kvarner Gulf and the mountains of Gorski Kotar. Rent a car in Rijeka and stay at the tranquil seaside resort of Opatija, where you'll find several opulent late-19th-century hotels once frequented by Austro-Hungarian aristocracy. From Opatija, ramble the beautiful 11km Lungomare (coastal footpath) to Lovran, home to stylish Secessionist villas set in lovely gardens. You can also take a ferry or a catamaran to the islands of Cres, Losinj, Rab or Pag, where the biggest attractions are Mali Losinj and the medieval-walled Rab Town.
