Trsat Castle, Rijeka

4.3
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.

  • Small Castle, you can enter for free and see Rijeka from above. The views are fantastic. On the highest tower lack of security, I do not recommend someone with fear of height. In the middle there is some eatery, but we did not check.
