As all of Europe is within a day’s drive from the Crikvenica Riviera, its location is auspicious for an unforgettable holiday. Children’s laughter rings out from the miles and miles of sandy and pebble beaches, echoing from the forested mountain-sides. Whether you prefer to be in the thick of things in Crikvenica itself, or in the quiet seclusion of Dramalj, Jadranovo or Selce towns, the Crikvenica Riviera is the perfect site for your family holiday.
Crikvenica Riviera – a masterpiece in miniature
The origin of Crikvenica town is a medieval monastery (“crikva”), a building which is today the Kaštel hotel. From this iconic place runs a network of narrow streets – the older the narrower – many of which barely wide enough for two people to pass each other by. Surely, it was these sights of man-made beauty within an economy of space, that inspired the Michelangelo of Miniature, Giulio Clovio, to bring to life his tiny, exquisite masterpieces, far from his birthplace in the Crikvenica Riviera.
If you hear the call of wide open spaces, you will be delighted by the spacious beaches which stretch throughout the Riviera, from Jadranovo to Selce, with their numerous entertainment venues for all ages. Crni Molo (Black Pier) beach is especially popular for families with children, as its shallows stretch for over two hundred meters from the shore.
