About the country

Location of the place

Rijeka is situated on the coast in northern part of Croatia.


Rijeka is the biggest port in Croatia and it is an industrial city, therefore there are almost no tourists. City center is nice and at least not so expensive like touristic ones. Beaches are located on outskirts so you have to take bus or car there. I can recommend ,,Bazeni Kantrida´´ beach when you dont wanna be on some overcrowded small beach or travel to far from the city. There is a beautiful castle Trsat with stunning view, or you could visit art gallery, museum, Torpedo launch station, ruins in the forest, astronomical centre or art kino with international movies.

Surroundings (possible trips, ...)

Hike on mountain Vojak, colosseum in Pula, Krk island, Plitvice lakes national park, Krka national park, ferry to Novalija.



Design office RI ISA is a member of Permasteelisa group, a leading global corporation in the world for design, manufacture and site installation of glazed aluminium curtain wall facades.

Work description

Thermal calculation of curtain walls (an external envelope of building made of glass and aluminium or steel) in software BISCO Physibel for EN standards and in software Therm for US standards.

Salary (sufficient for local conditions?)

4800 HRK was sufficient.

Language requirements

B2, everyone in the office speaks english. All documentation and drawings are in english language for international market.

Accommodation (price, who provided it)

There are new dormitories Trsat, which are unfortunatelly closed during the summer and open are just old Ivan Goran Kovacic dorms. Price there is only 60 euro per a month but it was too old and depressive for me so I found a privat apartment with two big rooms and kitchen for 300 euro.

Social life

Meeting IAESTE members (pick-up at the airport, organized events...)

Tina was a memeber of IAESTE and she took care of me, picked me up on the bus station by car, helped with all paperworks and introduced me to employer. And I joined a trip to Slovenia which was organized by IAESTE too.

Meeting other foreign students

There was just one another intern from IAESTE, but around 70 Erasmus students so we hanged out mainly with them.

Sport and culture

Swimming in sea, hiking, fitness, art gallery, museum, astronomical centre, art kino, concerts

Food, local specialties

There is a big market in city center with local fruits, vegetabels and spices.
