Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
On the site of castles dating to the Roman period, Trsat Castle today bears the marks of a later reconstruction in Neo-Gothic style. The castle changed hands multiple times between the 14th and 19th centuries, finally falling into the hands of an eccentric Austro-Hungarian naval officer who undertook its massive restoration. The castle features a stereotypical medieval tower and a Greek facade complete with columns and statues. Be sure to make your way to one of the terrace cafes for a view of Kvarner Bay. From there you'll have an unobstructed view of other ruins on nearby islands. To visit Trsat Castle on your holiday in Rijeka, and find out what else Rijeka has to offer, use our Rijeka.

  • Be sure to visit, a beautiful view of Rijeka, near the shrine of Our Lady of Trsat. Try to reach by stairs from Rijeka. The gastronomic offer is solid.  more »
