These are the places we’re going to visit on the first leg of our 2016 tour.
We start our 2016 tour in Omišalj, a small coastal town in the north-west of the island of Krk. It’s mostly known for hosting the Rijeka Airport as well as Port of Rijeka oil terminal but it’s also one of oldest towns on Krk, dating from the 3rd century, when it was built by the Romans and named Fulfinium. The historic town centre was built on the cliff overlooking the bay of Kvarner, which is just one of the facts that makes it interesting to tourists. Cultural and architectural heritage of Omišalj is extremely rich and today it rightly bears the title of the town-monument.

Lovran is a town with a long and diverse past and a hundred-year-long tradition of tourism. It is one of the oldest coastal settlements on the eastern shore of Istrian peninsula and once upon a time, it was an important urban and shipbuilding center. Later it became a fashionable resort of Austro-Hungarian nobility. A good climate, luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation and a favorable geographic location contributed to the rapid development of tourism during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since that time, Lovran, together with Opatija, has been the most important locality on the famed Riviera. Rich historical heritage gives them both a special charm, something you wont feel anywhere else.
