Life in Rijeka is fulfilling. Visitors can enjoy its many shops, go to the theatre and take part in many manifestations which take place in the city. One of them being Biennale Mladih (youth) which is an exhibition set up by young artists (painter and sculptors) who come to show their works. Other events which take place during the summer are musical and drama performances which all take place in the old part of the city, along with the Assumption in Trsat, the days of Zajec as well as Rijeka's carnival.
Being a business centre, Rijeka's tourism is also directed towards business and congressional tourism. Rijeka and nearby Opatija are the largest congressional destinations in the country. They are the ideal places to hold meetings, conferences and symposiums.

The natural and cultural features of Rijeka, the Mediterranean climate and the closer and broader surroundings of the mountainous landscape of the Primorsko-Goranska County add to the value of the city and its tourism.
