Above the dome is a bicep eagle with both heads facing to the left symbolizing the coat of arms granted in 1659 by Emperor Leopold I of Habsburg to the city of Rijeka. This eagle was removed in 1949 and then a lighter copy was relocated in 2017. Above the entrance arch you can admire the busts of the emperors Leopold I with Charles VI the eagle and the beautiful clock. This tower with its arch was the main entrance of the old cities leading to the Herb Square. The city of Rijeka is very interesting to visit, making a tourist route you can admire several churches, the small castle of Trsat near the basilica of Our Lady that dominate the city, the Mololongo which is about 3 km long, the cathedral of San Vito, the Orthodox synagogue the Government Palace which inside houses a very beautiful and interesting museum and many other tourist attractions. Although it looks like an old town it is always advisable to stop and visit it which is definitely worth it.
