The city is full of small Roman footprints. The work of the tourist office is very well done and it is possible to make routes to go discovering the points of interest.

It's possible to go by it and not notice it, but it's quite a unique thing to behold. Right there in Old town :)

If history and culture is what you're after amongst classic or very modern pubs this is a short walk to sight see! It's not extravagant and if you don't appreciate history have a seat and coffee while your other group members enjoy!

Splendid archway surrounded by lots of modern building, quite unusual. We found it by accident as we were walking around the city.

I love history but this is not much. All in all it's nice to walk the pedestrian area and coming upon this is nice, but by no means worth hunting down and looking for.

This massive Roman stone archway once was the entrance to the military command center. It is the oldest monument in Rijeka and the starting point for visiting the Roman excavations which are now part of newly opened Archeological Park.

A must see in the city centre. Old Roman arch, hidden square in the heart of the city, Cukarikafe bar is very close. Beautiful.
