I realized I've been slacking and haven't finished my Croatia trip posts! The country is too beautiful not to share, so here's the next city we visited: Rijeka. It's a port city and we only stayed there a night in order to break up our voyage south.
This building reminded me of some of the buildings in Chicago:
And I thought this square was pretty, especially the colors:
Our main activity in Rijeka was climbing many thousands of stairs (I didn't count but there were a lot) to the fortress at the top of the hill.
Here's the very unassuming fortress:
And here's a view from the top:
We started from way down here, at the port:
And to reward ourselves after all that climbing:
Yummy pivo, perfect for rehydrating after all that stair climbing! OK, maybe not, but still yummy! :)
