Souvenir Shops

The word souvenir comes from the French word souvenir and means memory. Take home a touchable memory of Rijeka. Rijeka's souvenirs can be found in the Tourist Information Centre, in the chosen galleries and shops that have received the “Originally from Rijeka” and “Unique quality” labels — Mala galerija Bruketa (Užarska 25), Atelijer Rogić (Užarska 15b), gift-shops in the department stores Korzo and Ri, in Tisak and iNovine kiosks and at Jeweller Grabušić (Matije Gupca 15a). In beautiful Trsat is the small shop called La Mamma delicije (Petra Zrinskog 2) that, in just a few square metres, includes all the best from around Croatia, and in the Old Town there is "Šta da?!" shop (Užarska 14) with the assortment of bags, T-shirts, pillows and jewellery with this slogan that has grown from a local catchphrase into a recognizable brand.


Rijeka has an eclectic mix of specialist little shops where everything from jewellery and haute couture fashions to antiques, items for the home and crafts such as locally made ceramics and paintings can be found. It has lively markets selling household goods, clothing and hardware items, along with fresh local cheeses, hams, fruit and vegetables that are a magnet for local residents who like to catch up with friends as well as shop. Rijeka also has few shopping centres, especially around the pedestrianised Korzo and two large shopping malls on both sides of the city. All of them attract trendy local buyers as well as visitors to the city.
