Trsat Castle, Rijeka

4.5
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.

  • Certainly the location of Trsat Castle (in Italian "Trsat Castle") does half of its beauty. Strategically built on the hill overlooking the town of Rijeka, the Castle offers a breathtaking view of surrounding hills on one side and the other on the historic city overlooking the sea. The castle is in ruins, but you can still visit its ramparts and stroll in the beautiful courtyard, well maintained and quiet, where there is also a bar with lounge music and selection of cocktails. Worth a visit, you'll return home with dozens of photos, and free admission!

  • Small fortress situated in a high part of the town of Rijeka. You visit quickly and admission is free ... the above is a beautiful panorama of the city (both beautiful and less beautiful parts) ... and there is also a bar inside the walls ... it can be reached via a flight of steps, which we recommend, that the city takes you to Trsat. Nearby you will also find a nice Park that starts from the Church ... Minor criticism: it's really a shame that some parts of the Castle are left to themselves with old disused furniture bar when, could be better exploited.

  • A very nice place to spend some time and take some pictures of a beautiful landscape. The bar is a little expensive.

  • Great view of the city and the Cafe with inexpensive coffee in the middle of the courtyard is a plus. There appeared to be an entrance fee to some parts, but didn't find any pay for places there.

  • Prelepo mesto, prelep pogled, mirno, tiho, postoji i galerija slika koja je otvorenog tipa, žao mi je što u tom momentu kafić nije bio otvoren za goste.
