Description

Join me for a live-streamed, interactive Online Experience to explore the diverse city of Rijeka, a city that changed seven different countries over the last 100 years, houses more than 24 ethnic minorities, and despite it all, doesn’t have an identity crisis! Over the centuries, this Adriatic port has attracted foreign investors, experts, and intelligentsia. As a cradle of innovations, such as the first torpedo, Rijeka has secured a special place on the world's map. 

We will start at the oldest point in the city, on the Roman ruins. We will find the narrowest street, walk underneath the Clock Tower, and enter our pedestrian Korzo Street. Walking through the Central Market, we will explore the sights and sounds of the fish market. As we make our way about the town, you will find out why our nickname is "the city that flows" and how many languages our ancestors spoke. 

You will be able to admire the uniqueness of Rijeka's multiculturalism visible on our Turkish House, the Austrian architecture of Palazzo Modello, and the National Theatre. Together, we will also get to understand what the “Dead Canal" is and why is it important for the city dwellers. Our interactive walk and talk will end on the Bridge of Croatian Defenders, which was once a political border along the Dead Canal, today it is the spot that keeps the city together.
