4dec17--A Thank You to our host, City of Rijeka , for sponsoring this 'live cam' view of Rijeka’s promenade, one of the main tourist destinations in Croatia, exciting.
Crazy storm tonight!
Wooo massive storm with lashing rain, chairs and tables blowing down the street :O
the building have been decorated with ribbon, is it some national holiday or saints day?
Very busy in town this morning.
23.23 tonight pouring with rain tonight. No one around tonight.
Sunshine, it looks lovely today.
Well what do you know it's raining again and very windy. Every morning I check in to watch the usually two ladies, set everything out for the day at this cafe. They usually start at 6.45 to clear the tables and wipe everything down. My word these ladies start early. Especially as no one seems to come for anything at this time in a morning. But the whole place looks so clean and tidy, nothing like our town centres in the UK.
Poor people who run the cafe it seems to have rained all day. I watched as they opened the cafe here on the right at 7am this morning. People were just rushing past struggling to keep dry under their umbrellas.
Trisha, that was traditional carnival parade that takes place every year. There are more than ten thousand participants and up to hundred thousand spectators.
Watching a wonderful parade! Is this a special day?
Dougie, that was Croatian hospitality you were experiencing and Croatian scenery you were enjoying. Every place you mention there is Croatia. (That is not to say, for example, that Slovenians or Serbians couldn't provide you with good hospitality.) Consider visiting again.
Many years ago, when Yugoslavia still existed as a 'country' and popular holiday venue, I was fortunate enough to spend several holidays there. Cavtat, Dubrovnik, Opatja, Kvarner, Plitvice [those unbelievably majestic falls], Krk and, last but not least, Rijeka. Wonderful Yugoslavian hospitality -- long before those dreadful wars!!. Marvellous countryside, towns steeped in history, and those fascinating islands.O.K., time passes, it's a different place now, but I can re-live memories!
