If you’re in Kvarner, don’t miss the old smithy at Dražice (just inland from Rijeka) where you can see how blacksmiths ply their trade. Close by is Gašparov mlin, a well-preserved watermill, one of several at Grobnik. For a tour, contact the Jelenje Tourist Association on 051 297 152.
For a great hike, head for Mali Lošinj island and climb the peak of Osoršćica (588m). You’ll be rewarded by a 360-degree view of Pag and Silba islands, the Istrian peninsula, the mountains of Gorski kotar and the Velebit range. Trails start at Nerezine or Osor (just across the causeway on Cres island).  Be sure to take plenty of water and in hot weather start early in the morning. There’s a mountain lodge open during the summer every day except Mondays.
On a cultural note, in Mali Lošinj town, in the museum in the Fritzy palace you can see the Mihičić Collection of contemporary Croatian painting, sculpture and medallions, and the Piperata Collection – 27 works by Italian masters of the 17th and 18th century. Take a step back in time in Rab town on 25-27 July when the Knight’s Tournament and the Rapska fjera take place. This is the town’s annual fiesta held in honour of its patron Saint Christopher and King Ljudevit the Great which began 1346.
