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.

Situated not very far from city centre. The toughest part is the stairs you need to climb to reach the castle. On top there is a nice view of the city with the sea in the background. There is also a restaurant, which might be...More

It is near the center of Rijeka (Korzo). You can go there by stairs (539 of them!!!) - Trsatske stube. The view on Rijeka and Kvarner Bay is beautiful. The burg itself is interesting, part of it is in ruins, and part is renewed. There...More

not the most impressive castle, but a fun thing to do with a nice view. Walk the site, had a beer (overpriced) and ate a meal in a nearby restaurant.

Small but a nice break from driving. Parking is a beast. Cant go in any rooms but the shell of the fortress is pretty cool. The view is amazing. Didn't try the coffee shop.

Castle is mostly in ruins, but still very charming, with great sea and city view. The entrance is free. There is a charming café. Worth the visit!
