Trsat Castle, Rijeka
(4.2/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Trsat Castle part of your personalized Rijeka itinerary using our Rijeka itinerary planner.

  • Easy to reach from the city centre, buses run every 15 minutes. In the middle are often interesting exhibitions. Curiously located Café.

  • Ask for Ante and he will make every wish come true in an unique place... I have no clue why I must type 100 words to describe one of the most beautiful places that anyone MUST visit if coming to Rijek...  more »
  • Must see if visiting Rijeka. Nice view form top of the castle. Parking place available close(cca 200m) away. Nice bars near by.
