The Kvarner region encompasses the northern eastern coast of the Istrian peninsula, the coastline from Rijeka down to Jablanac and the islands of the northern Adriatic including Cres, Losinj, Krk, Rab. The principal city of the region is Rijeka, located at the head of the Gulf of Kvarner, an important commercial centre with a significant shipbuilding industry and a port from which there are ferry services down the coat to Dalmatia. To the west of Rijeka are the sumptuous resorts of Opatija and Lovran which have a different feel to the Venetian towns on the west coast of Istria.
