History and description
Stadion Kantrida officially opened on the 1st of June 1912 with a friendly between Victorije and Građanskog. The site of the stadium was earlier used as a stone quarry.
The stadium became the home of Rijeka in 1946, and got extensively renovated in the 1950s. At that time, it could hold about 25,000 spectators.
Stadion Kantrida received a last refurbishment in 2010. It is also used for athletics events and concerts.
Stadion Kantrida is located right on the Adriatic coast toward the west of the city of Rijeka. It lies just under 5 kilometres from Rijeka’s historic city centre and rail station.
From the centre one can reach the stadium by following Krešimirova Ul. (which runs in front of the station) west. The stadium will lie down near the coast on the left side of the road.
If coming from the A7 motorway (which runs north of the city), take exit 5, and follow the D304 toward the city. After almost 3 kilometres make a sharp right onto Liburnijska Ul. and follow until you see the floodlights on your left.
The stadium can be reached from Rijeka’s historic centre with bus 1.
Address: Portić 3, 51000 Rijeka
