Rijeka : Michelin's recommendations
Rijeka, or Fiume if one remembers its Italian heritage (1919-43), was formerly the most important town of Croatia. Today it is still the country's largest port and a hub of tourism in the Adriatic.

The best time to discover it is undoubtedly the festive carnival period.
