North Adriatic

To describe and write an intro for this region was a great challenge.
It consists of Gorski Kotar, the hilly wooden region between Central Croatia and North Adriatic.
Rijeka area is all about the town of Rijeka and all the surrounding small towns, mainly coastal. Here is also Kvarner Bay, or its islands; Lošinj/Lussino, Krk, Rab, Cres and others.
