Bakar Guided Tour
Bakar, 13 kilometres from Rijeka, is one of the oldest towns in the northern Adriatic and was granted the status of royal town by Maria Theresa in 1779. It was built like an amphitheatre on a hill and its historical nucleus was declared a cultural monument in 1968.
In Bakar we will visit the tide gauge that was set in 1929 and since then it has been recording sea level at the same point, till today. Andrija Mohorovičić, a world known scientist, lived and worked as a professor on Naval Academy (today Pomorska škola) from 1882. For the beginning of his scientific career his stay in Bakar was decisive. He founded a Meteorological station there. We will visit the Bakar Nautical School, Turkish house, Roman house and many other landmarks.
