Boat #179, Fiume

Anyone out there know anything about Fiume? Be honest. I didn't think so. I didn't either. Fiume was a tiny little country (11 square miles) with a short and bloody history, 1920-1924. Fiume was a port city-state on the Adriatic Sea, connected to Italy along its western border. Its territory is now part of modern day Croatia. Fiume was merely a blip on the ever changing map of Europe in the 20th century. But it'll always have a home here at 365 Boats.
