Overview
More
Gradski Toranj (City Tower), a symbol of Rijeka, is a good example of a typical round tower access-point, which lead into the fortified town. Today it dominates the central part of Korzo, although it was, during its time, overtopped by more recently constructed buildings. It was built in the Middle Ages, probably on the foundations of the Late Ancient, littoral town doors. Some baroque phases of its construction can be seen on the lower part of the front of the Tower, which are characterised by a richly decorated portal, an imperial coat of arms carved out of stone and a relief of the Austrian emperors Leopold and Charles VI. Rijeka paid them special respect due to the maritime orientation they introduced into the state policies of the Austrian court.

Nicely decorated and a light color. A good example of the local architecture influenced by Venetians and Hapsburg.

The clock tower is one of the symbols of the city Located in the pedestrian streets almost by the sea, is easy to find, because the tourist routes are very well marked.

The centre-piece of Rijeka one would say (at least I). Nicely decorated and a light colour. A good example of the local architecture influenced by Venicians and Habsburgs.

A beautiful landmark that helps keep you oriented with time and direction. It faces the nearby water's edge and is hard to miss. Walk through it for even more fun exploring.
