The theme of the Rijeka Boat Show is “The city is the port, the port is the city”, and visitors can see new small boats made in Croatia as well as global brands and nautical and fishing equipment.
“Rijeka’s potential has been recognized by the world’s largest groups – the attractiveness of the Porto Baroš marina has been recognized by the Lürssen Group, the world’s largest producer of megayachts. The future container terminal at Zagreb Pier has been recognized by Maersk, the largest shipping company in the world. This means that over the next three to four years Rijeka will definitely change its face when seen from the sea, “said Mayor Marko Filipović.
