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. Make Trsat Castle part of your personalized Rijeka itinerary using our Rijeka itinerary planner.

  • Fantastic view of the city and free entrance to explore. It's pretty small so don't expect too much, but definitely worth a walk around. The views at sunset are stunning!  more »

  • Great place to see!
  • 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.
  • A beautiful view on the entire river. As part of the castle is beautifully decorated café with a view
