Rijeka is the principal seaport and the third-largest city in Croatia . It is located on Kvarner Bay, an inlet of the Adriatic Sea and has a population of 128,624 inhabitants . The metropolitan area, which includes adjacent towns and municipalities, has a population of 245,054 .Historically, because of its strategic position and its excellent deep-water port, the city was fiercely contested, especially among Italy, Hungary, and Croatia, changing hands and demographics many times over centuries. According to the 2011 census data, the overwhelming majority of its citizens are presently Croats, along with small numbers of Bosniaks, Italians and Serbs.Rijeka is the chief city of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. The city's economy largely depends on shipbuilding and maritime transport. Rijeka hosts the Croatian National Theatre Ivan pl. Zajc, first built in 1765, as well as the University of Rijeka, founded in 1973 but with roots dating back to 1632 School of Theology.
