Historic Site
“Trsat Castle represents a strategically embossed gazebo on a hill 138 meters above sea level that dominates Rijeka. As a parochial center 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 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. ”

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. ”

History Museum
“This museum has been one of the most important meeting-places of culture in the city of Rijeka for the last four decades. With its permanent display and many valuable exhibitions from its own holdings or of other Croatian museums it takes part in tracing the important events connected with the history and culture of Rijeka Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and Croatia, and so it reveals small parts of the insufficiently known past. With its research into the complex materials, in a time span from prehistory to the Modern Age, with expert and scientific methods it processes, systemises and presents the role and development of the whole of the social organism in the region of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, the Croatian Littoral and the city of Rijeka and points out its specific and interactive relationship with other European centres over a thousand year period, with the aim of becoming a dynamic, open and educative institution. ”
