Presentation of Adria

Adria, established in 1882 in Rijeka, was the leading steamship company of the Croato-Hungarian part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, connecting Rijeka with north European, western Mediterranean and Southamerican harbours. It managed 34 steamships. After the First World War, the company was given to Italy and by 1937 it was merged with the Tirrenia company.
An other company named Adria was established in 1871 in Trieste, but closed in 1878.
