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.

The importance of industry in Rijeka does not allow the city to develop into a holiday centre. However, by being the second largest city in Croatia and an important business centre, Rijeka has developed into a strong centre of business tourism.

National Park Risnjak is a wooded mountain massif in the vicinity of the Town of Rijeka, that was named after the lynx ('Ris' in Croatian), its most famous inhabitant. The park extends from 300 to 1,500 metres above sea level, and owing to its position at the intersection of the Alps and the Dinarides, the Mediterranean and Central Europe, almost all types of forests that are characteristic for this region as well as many plant and animal species can be found here within a small area. Among the animals, brown bears, lynxes, wild cats, chamoises, deer and eagles should be singled out.
