Crikvenica is a town in the Kvarner Bay
on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Four smaller coastal towns, Dramalj, Jadranovo, Selce and Crikvenica, form the Crikvenica Riviera. The biggest city nearby is Rijeka
and it is only 35 km away. The town is so close to Central Europe that it can be reached within a day. By choosing a villa in Crikvenica awaits you many interesting things to discover.
An important role in the towns history played the valley Vinodol
where, during ancient times, a number of settlements were built along the coast line. This villages were important trade ports at first but later became bigger towns and popular tourist destinations. The bay provided excellent natural shelter and refuge
for trade ships. One of these important ports was situated at the mouth of the river Dubracina and it later became the town of Crikvenica. Archaeological finds of swords, daggers, jewellery and remains of prehistoric settlements indicate that the town is at least two thousand years old. The first hotel was built in the late 19th century and after World War I tourism became more and more important.
