New Rijeka souvenirs were presented today, created in cooperation with the renowned artist Bruno Paladin. The line of souvenirs was inspired by the Glagolitic - the oldest Croatian script, which was turned into impressive motifs that connect the history of Croatian culture with a very contemporary “Paladin approach”.  He played with the Glagolitic alphabet letters and through the color gave it warmth, happiness, and also elegance.

On this occasion the umbrella and mats for glasses with Glagolitic motif were presented. As always, the aim was to create souvenir which will meet three conditions: that is typical for Rijeka, to have superior aesthetic value and to carry bright and cheerful motifs. A usable item that is not only a souvenir reserved for tourists, but also a great gift idea for friends and business partners. 

All items carry certificates “Rijeka source” and “Special quality', and the umbrella “I love Rijeka” has received special recognition during the campaign “I love Croatia - I love Rijeka”. Souvenirs from this collection can be found at the Tourist Information Centre on Korzo, „Migotin“ shop, ‘‘La Mamma‘‘ souvenir shop in Trsat, „Kastavski spomeni“ souvenir shop in Kastav,  „Suvenir“ shop in Zagreb and via our web shop
