NameGuidebook - Secessional Architecture of Rijeka (Croatia)
DescriptionRijeka was for a long time a very important port and industrial town, but from 2000 its production diminished. Now the city is trying to convert itself into a touristic centre with emphasis on local historical and architectural values. Within the city territory, the main criteria regarding the selection of buildings and their inclusion into the guide framework are determined by the need to show to the citizens and tourists the existing Secessional buildings within the longer or shorter walk through the city centre. The buildings are chosen because of their importance, complete shape, composition of volume, the manner in which the interior space was constituted and because of the typical elements of the façade ornamentation suggesting the Secession decorative nature in its outer morphological configuration. The historical criterion embraces the early 20th century, i.e. the first two decades including also proto-rationalist architecture which announced more recent modern styles(1900-1925). During this period, Rijeka was ruled by Budapest governor while the architects were educated either in Budapest or in Vienna, so the architecture of Rijeka demonstrates a specific shape under various European influences of Secession style.
