"Art-kino Croatia" in Rijeka is a nostalgia-inducing old cinema that's refuge for true cinemaphiles. First opened in 1927, it's all about the art here...

Is there a thing as nostalgia-inducing as an old cinema? Walls draped in red velvet, the soft glow of dimmed lights, vintage photos of movie stars from another era... Art-kino Croatia is one such place, a refuge for true cinemaphiles, proudly resisting the fake glitz and glamour of a typical 21st century multiplex.

First opened in 1927, the venue was closed, restored, reopened and renamed several times, but it has always remained a bastion of pure Cinema. It's accessible and open to the public in every possible way: it's conveniently located in the city centre, the tickets are affordable, the program fantastic and versatile, catering to every age group and aiming to ignite a passion for cinema culture in the local community.

You'll often come across a movie premiere with the director and the cast hanging around chatting with visitors, or a themed movie festival providing enough entertainment for a week's stay. You will never be bombarded with commercials or forced to buy overpriced popcorn and drinks - it's all about the art of cinema, from the Art-kino Film Library in the entrance hall to that thrilling moment when the lights go out and the crowd goes quiet before the screening. Enjoy!

Really close to Hotel Continental in Rijeka, there is a really beautiful passage on Križanićeva street. It is around 100 meters long and believe me, it is 100 meters of 'amazing...'
