It consists of islands of Cres, Lošinj, Krk, Rab, Pag and the larger towns of Rijeka, Senj, Opatija, Lovran and Crikvenica. For the town of Rijeka, as the largest Croatian port, it is especially important that the Kvarner Bay is deeper than the rest of the upper Adriatic (30-60m), which makes it perfect place for sea port.
Throughout history this area was inhabited by Liburnians and Histrians, who was later conquered by the Romans. Roman linguistic and cultural influence persisted and stayed long after the resettlement of the Slavic population. It is faithfully evidenced by the fact that the last speaker of the Roman-Slavic language died on the island of Krk in 1898. Throughout history, this area was dominated by Venice, Austria and its specificity is that here the ecclesiastical glagolitism has been proclaimed. From the 11th century until the Second Vatican Council in the 20th century this was the only place within Catholicism in which Mass could serve in the national language.
