All visitors to Rijeka who stay in the city for two or more nights until March 31, 2022, have the opportunity to receive a Winter Pass, which allows them to visit the included attractions and facilities completely free of charge. Namely, it is a winter extension of the Rijeka Tourist Card, which will be available from April 1, 2022.

In addition to two major traditional events – Rijeka Advent and Rijeka Carnival, tourists can visit all museums, Art Quarter, Astronomical Center Rijeka, and Kantrida Pools for free.


As for museums, visitors can visit the City of Rijeka Museum, i.e., its exhibits in the Palace of Šećerana, Kockica, and Žabica, where there is an exhibition on the Rijeka torpedo, MMSU, Natural History Museum Rijeka, Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka, JGL Pharmacy Museum, Peek & Poke – Museum of Childhood and Museum of Informatics and Trsat Castle.

The Rijeka Winter Pass works in such a way that after booking accommodation for two or more nights in Rijeka, visitors will receive their Winter Pass upon arrival at the selected accommodation. The Winter Pass consists of a voucher with a QR code and will be sent to the visitor’s e-mail. In addition, free entrance to selected sights is achieved by presenting a QR code at their entrance.

A Rijeka Winter Pass breakdown

  • Book accommodation for two or more nights in Rijeka and receive a Winter Pass as a gift from the Rijeka Tourist Board.
  • You will receive your Winter Pass upon your arrival at your chosen accommodation.
  • Your Winter Pass consists of a voucher with a QR code. The voucher will be sent to your e-mail address.
  • Show the QR code at the entrance of the selected landmark and get free entry.

In April, the Rijeka Tourist Card will take over from the Winter Pass, also providing the best discounts for the most important city attractions.

According to the Teaching Institute for Public Health PGC, all tourists can also receive rapid antigen testing for only 40 kuna, a practice that has been done since August 6, 2021. 

Tourists can still be tested at the Teaching Institute in Opatija, Crikvenica, Krk, Cres, Mali Lošinj, Rab, and Delnice, and at the headquarters of the Teaching Institute in Rijeka (at the address: Krešimirova 52a, Rijeka).

Tourists who have a voucher or a certificate from eVisitor showing their overnight stay, proving that they have stayed in a commercial accommodation facility for at least 3 nights, have the right to use this testing discount. In addition, tourists can get a residence permit in the facility where they are staying (hotel, camp, household facility, etc.).
