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.

  • The Trsat Castle is located in the part of Trsat, Rijeka - close to the University. Super nice area... even the road in front of the Castle... with nice restaurants, bistros, cafes,... The castle itself has a small, nice café. I would recommend it if you to stay in the, but for a long journey it is worth less.

  • This is a great place to have a nice view of Rijeka city. During the sunset and night time it is a very good experience! There's also a comfy cafe/bar/restaurant inside the castle and you don't have to pay to enter the castle. Enjoy!
  • 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.
  • Great views, a must see place when in rejika, like MUST.
