Rijeka is major Croatian port. It is located in the very heart of Kvarner Gulf. Because of its location, Rijeka is a crossroads of land and sea routes connected with the rest of the world by air, bus, train and ship lines. Rough Guides describes Rijeka as a "row of cumbrous cranes and rusty, sea-stained tankers in front of the soaring apartment blocks".

Oryx croatia was excellent. city center locations were much more convenient for pick-up and drop-off than airports would have been. it was nice to have that option in both places.
