Trsat Castle represents a strategically embossed gazebo on a hill 138 meters above sea level that dominates Rijeka. As a parochial centre it was mentioned for the first time in 1288. Trsat Castle is one of the oldest fortifications on the Croatian Coast, where the characteristics of the early medieval town construction have been preserved. Today Trsat Castle, beside the Bazilisk souvenir shop and the Gradina coffee bar, is enriched with new facilities – gallery space where art exhibitions are held as well as open-air summer concerts and theatre performances as well as fashion shows and Literary evenings. Within Trsat Castle, at the Petra Zrinskog b.b. Address, is the Trsat Castle Info Point where any information about this building and the town of Rijeka can be found.

Once you climb the narrow stairs (there's a handrail, but it's not for those who're afraid of heights!), you will be glad you did. The view is gorgeous, and you can see all the Rijeka from it. If you like history and historical features/architecture, this...More

After trekking up the stairs to the castle (which is an achievement in itself), we spent about 10 minutes in the castle before coming back down again. There are some nice views from the top and a cafe but not much more to see. Some...More
