Nemo Pub

We're a small bar focusing on : 1. non-mainstream quality music of all genres; 2. a decent variety of premium local &international beers; 3. a great variety of local liquours & whiskeys; 4. above all else - a chill and friendly ambient where it won't take long for you to get to know us and start feeling like at home. Located at the bottom of the famous Rijeka tourist attraction, the Stairs of Petar Kružić, we're a perfect spot to get a coffee before climbing them; or, if you're not in the mood of climbing 500 stairs, just relax with a couple of drinks and get mesmerized by the sight of the Rječina river flowing below our cozy terrace. And you can be sure our great staff will find that perfect drink for you ;)

Stop Caffe & Club

We are in the old town of Rijeka, and currently we can be proud of our completely renovated area. Apart from trying to be recognizable by the excellent taste of Julius Meinl coffee, with main goal to provide our guests the finest quality, we are persistent to maintain a pleasant and peaceful daytime atmosphere, but also we often offer a good night out. We are planning and running our own events and concerts on weekends. We strive to maintain good communication with students and accordingly to their needs we organize various student evenings, and we are ready to cooperate in terms of private parties. We are recognizable as one of the four cafes that participate in the party concept ĐIR Po Starom Gradu, and we can also eulogize with the largest indoor terrace in the old part of Rijeka.

Kastav

Rising above towns teeming with activity, Kastav has managed to preserve its rich history, its valuable architectural monuments, its culture, tradition, and its untouched nature over many centuries. At the same time, keeping up with the times, it developed an up to date entrepreneurial spirit reflected in both attractive and unique tourist offers as well as in traditional industries. Kastav can offer an exquisite blend of delights and business opportunities to every visitor. Kastav has it all - from high quality music and stage performances to folk festivals and carnival parties, from recreation in nature to visits to museums and landmarks, always accompanied with first class gastronomic and oenological delights.

The most quaint town you can actually stay in. Most attractions of this type are only for paying customers to visit & a few privileged locals to live in. So imagine our surprise when our accommodation "Euroway House" was right in the middle of Kastav - the most quaint ancient village you will ever stay in. With a massive natural park attached to it, where it looks like nothing has changed for the last 500 years you can still see the stone foundations of ancient buildings & amphitheaters that existed in a buy gone era. You could spend days just exploring this park. Not to mention the most amazing views from the old castle towers of Kastav - of which, I think 5 are still standing.

Trsat Castle

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.

The evening walk to a castle was great idea. The view is amazing, day or night. Definitely worth a visit.
