Title

Urban transformation of Sušaks port on Rijeka

 

Abstract

The geographical and transport position of Rijeka determined its predominantly maritime orientation and decisivela influenced the entire region’s economy. The development of its port was a consequence of numerous political and economic changes in European space, which were manifested in the position and development possibilities for one of the three most important ports on the North Adriatic transport corridor. Moreover, the town was born, developed and declined just as the port was born, developed or declined. The Rijeka-Sušak basin lies directly before the town core and stretches to Mlaka in the west and Brajdica in the East. The inner part of the Rijeka basin is used for passenger transport. Building of this artificial port basin simultaneously closed the town’s coastal fasade, which is a typical property of other coastal towns. The only spaces where the town has direct access to the sea are the passenger port and Sušak. Owing to administrative divisions the latter town was until recently developing independently; events tied to the port’s development affected it only indirectly. The subject of the diploma thesis, which the article presents in an abridged version, was to join the towns and create a uniform space.
