Rijeka ( 45°19.8' N - 14°25.4' E )

The port of Rijeka is situated in the Kvarner Gulf, and trough Kupa Valley there is connection potencial to Zagreb and Pannonian basin, and consequently, to the Danube region and Central Europe.

The advantage of north Adriatic ports over the ports in the North Sea or the Baltic results from the shortest maritime link between Europe and The Near, the Middle, and the Far East. Since the Adriatic sea is the most indented section of the European continent, the northern Adriatic is a part of Europe that enables the closest access to world seas to the central European countries.

The Port of Rijeka has an exceptional geo-traffic position. The draft debt higher than 16 m (18 m) allows the access to the largest ships and it will be deepened to 20 m with the construction of new facilities.

D uring the World War I, by closing the Otrant passage, trade and maritime traffic with overseas countries was interrupted, thus the traffic through the port of Rijeka was carried out only within the Adriatic Sea. By the beginning of the Second World War, the city of Rijeka and the port were divided into two parts to Rijeka and Sušak port. Both ports became war bases during the war.

From 1960 to 1990. the port of Rijeka is transformed into a modern port system in the Kvarner hinterland. In 1967, the bulk cargo terminal at Podbok location in Bakar was put into operation and was listed as one of the most modern terminals in Europe. The terminal was mainly used for the import of iron ore for the needs of Austria and Czechoslovakia.

In 1983 on the Goranin coast, a terminal for the general cargo and ro-ro ramp equipped with coastal cranes were installed.
