Historic Site
“Trsat was inhabited even in prehistoric times and the fort, that was part of a defense line in Roman times, went through many renovations but the most famous was made by Count Laval Nugent during Austro-Hungarian Empire, who organized it as his home and established a museum. The castle can be reached by car or by public transportation, yet the most exciting way is by stairs from the city’s center. It is said that these 16th century stairs are cursed so nobody can count them precisely. Anyway, the view of the city and the whole bay from the castle is breathtaking.”

Opera House
“This is the Croatian National Theater, for those wanting to have some classical cultural experience. There domestic and guest operas, dramas and ballet there. Near the theater, there is the biggest Rijeka market - the Brajda market, where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruit, fish and meat, as well as other local goodies, flowers and clothes. It is lively and vibrant. Just be sure to arrive before 13/14 o´clock, because that is when some stands are closing, or have less good goodies. Everything gets taken :D It is nice to go early in the morning, buy groceries, have coffee somewhere near the theater, and admire the beautiful palaces and old buildings across the street. Or just turn to the other side, and sip you coffee looking at the sea. ”
