Visitors can stroll through authentic rural villages, swim in secluded bays, and sunbathe on popular city beaches. Krk Town, the island’s central town, is cloaked by two-thousand-year-old walls and impressive historical buildings, including the 13th-century Frankopan Castle, the Kosljun Monastery Museum, and the 16th-century City Hall.

Rijeka’s public transportation includes the city (1st zone) and suburban (2nd, 3rd and 4th zone) bus lines. Public transport operates from 5 am to 11.30 pm, approximately every 15 minutes.

The main bus stops in Rijeka for public transport are Jelačić Square and Delta Terminal. Public transportation is divided into 4 zones. The KD Autrolej buses are recognizable because of their orange color. Prices and types of bus tickets are one-way, two-way, daily and weekly passes. One-way tickets can be purchased directly from the bus driver. The tickets must be paid for in cash.

After purchasing a ticket, it is necessary to time stamp it in the ticket stamping device, which is usually immediately behind the driver. The ticket can be used in one direction of travel and the passenger has the right to change several buses, provided they do not exceed the driving time limit.

The time limit for a bus ticket for the first zone is 60 minutes, the second zone is 70 minutes, the third zone is 90 minutes and the fourth zone is 130 minutes. Two-way travel tickets can be purchased at kiosks and in KD Autotrolej offices. The same rules and time limit apply as with one-way travel tickets that are bought directly on the bus.
