Bakar - the quaint little town

We passed by the town on our way to Crikvenica a couple of weeks ago. This town is so small and hidden that it could be forgotten easily. It is located at the Bay of Bakar. Bakar has long history dating all the way back to prehistoric times. It used to be a thriving port till the completion of Karlovac-Rijeka railroad. It was forgotten by most who adopted the new Rijeka port. In recent times, the industrialization of the town ruined pretty much of its natural environment. We are seeing a new wave as heavy industries are relocating themselves. Hopefully Bakar is not forgotten too soon. The past and culture should never be.
A pretty little alleyway.
