The beautiful place of Hreljin has been mentioned since ancient times in 1255, when it became the property of the noble, well-known Croatian Frankopan family. Today, the remains of two churches, the bell tower of St. George and the preserved chapel of the Blessed Virgin Mary testify to the glory of the place.
Hreljin is an integral part of the town of Bakra, which is located in the beautiful Primorje-Gorski Kotar county. It is located on a rocky hill, descending downwards, protruding caves cultivated into vineyards. The whole area is full of beautiful nature, and the place is close to the cities of Rijeka and Crikvenica, as well as the Kvarner islands and surrounding beautiful places.
Perfect food, wine routes, recreational facilities provide a perfect rest for body and soul.
Peace and the chirping of birds provide a complete oasis of peace, and those eager to have a good time will not be disappointed by the summer offer of the nearby larger cities.
Lovers of antiquities and history must visit Hrelj Castle, which once defended the city, and breathe in the breath of some ancient, past, mystical times and feel the air of the 13th century.

We have already mentioned the European Capital of Culture in 2020, which is the main center of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, the port city of Rijeka, which tells its own special story. There is no shortage of entertainment, culture and good food there.
The Crikvenica riviera is also nearby, which is full of sports and recreational facilities and crystal clear sea with beautiful beaches.
Numerous restaurants, museums, churches, untouched nature, concerts and various other events have been attracting tourists for years, and their number is increasing every year.

And when you’ve had your fill of laughter, noise, good music and great food, Hreljin will provide you with the perfect rest for body and soul. Tourists return again and again, discovering something new.
