Trsat Castle, Rijeka

(4.3/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • From the Castle (tiny) you can enjoy the view of the city of RijeKa. Beautiful sunset sat at coffee which is right inside the Castle and enjoy a nice aperitif before dinner. Easily accessible from the city of Rijeka with the bis number 9
