Overview

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.

Fantastic view of the city and coastline to Opatija. Not too many steps to climb within the castle . Coffee shop on the premises, you can catch a taxi r local bus up to the castle. Worth the trip.

The best view of the city which flows - Rijeka. We climbed for about 20 min which we found it is tradiotionally to do it by locals. If you visit Rijeka and Kvarner don't miss this place.
