Croatia’s Kvarner Gulf coastal area, including the city of Rijeka, will promote its health tourism product in Norway this week…
The local tourist board said in a statement yesterday that it will promote Croatia’s tourism services in the area, notably its health tourism, in Oslo from 20-21 April. The two-day promotional event, which is organised by the tourist board and the Croatian Embassy in Norway, will see representatives of Norwegian travel agencies, insurance companies, associations of patients, numerous public figures and the media attend.
Something which will be highlighted during the weekend in Oslo will be the fact that in 1904 King Oscar II of Norway and Sweden visited Opatija with Queen Sofia for a longer vacation.
More flight connections this summer brings the Norwegian market closer than it has ever been to Croatia. Direct connections via Norwegian Air from Oslo to Rijeka have been established also this year.
Kvarner also includes a number of popular Croatian islands, including Cres, Krk, Pag, Rab and Lošinj. The bay is notable for its depth, which allows for the city of Rijeka at its northernmost point to have a sea port that can accommodate Capesize ships.
