Rijeka provides the shortest connection between overseas destinations and Central
and Central-Eastern Europe, both with respect to land and sea routes; the quality
of service compares with those in other North Adriatic
ports and covers all types of cargo.
The most important traffic
routes for the Port
of Rijeka are the
Pan-European Corridor 5, Branch B and Corridor 10. The traffic route directed
to the Hungarian, Czech, Slovak market, as well as to the market of south
Poland, connects Rijeka – Zagreb – Budapest on the Corridor 5B; it is 504 km long and thanks to
the newly constructed motorway, it takes six hours to get from one end to the
other. A train needs 24 hours for the same route covering a distance of 592 km.
The transit route for the markets in Bosnia and
Herzegovina and Serbia is directed to the Pan-European
Corridor 10 as well.
