The latest studies say that Rijeka has more rainy days than London. You don’t believe me? Well, take your umbrella AND sunglasses with you, trust me. If you have decided to visit Rijeka for two or more days, 99% of the time, I guarantee you, it will rain. So, what to do while it’s raining? Do sports. Sport center Out is always in. It is good to call them before you decide to go, just to check the availability. If you don’t call them, I suggest you come during the morning. It is not that crowded.

After 16:00, prices are a little bit higher, for squash it’s 60 kn/hour. You don’t have equipment for squash or badminton? No problem. You can rent it. You only need to have sportswear. After an hour or two of sweating, you can also take a shower there.
