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.

We were there with the group of friend of free diving.
This is nice place where also the not divers can stay and enjoy the place.
The see area is nice and there is a separate area for divers. Fantastic to see the fishes stay on the limit between the low water part and the deep see

Paragliding is something I've always wanted to try. It was incredible! Now I know what an eagle feels like!
Damir, our pilot and made my wife and I very comfortable. Very friendly and professional. We also enjoyed visiting with Maxo, the driver! Communication during planing and leading up the the flight was great! I had an email reservation and paid in cash (Kuna) after the flight. It all worked great!
Take off was perfectly smooth! The flight was exhilarating and peaceful at the same time! The scenery was beautiful! The landing was butter smooth! I can't say enough about it! I would go again in a heartbeat! Well worth the time and money!
Thanks so much Damir and Paragliding Kvarner! You made our trip!

If you're buzzing around in Croatia during your well deserved holidays, make yourself a gift and head to Peek & Poke, the Computer Museum in Rijeka/Fiume. They've gathered a lovely collection of old computers and consoles, calculating machines and other goodies from the 50's till the present day. They also give vintage books away for free!

St. James kirke

Reviewed By 748Rita - Aarhus, Denmark

Jadranovo er en lille kroatisk kystby, som
i 2011 havde godt 1200 indbyggere. Byen er velsignet med en smuk strand med klipper og har en del turisme, som er blomstret godt med sin tæthed til Crikvenica.
Vi besøgte byen for at se dens smukke havn og strand, men opdagede denne gamle kirke på vejen. Den ligger ved et sving, og da vi kom, var byens borgere på vej til gudstjeneste. Vi nåede lige at se kirken indeni, mens menigheden samledes i kirken. Kirken var lille, hyggelig og med en rød løber hele vejen op til alteret.

Monty's Dog Beach and Bar

Reviewed By Nina1981812 - Koprivnica, Croatia

The beach is easy to get, the beach is small, entry into the water arranged only on one part. There are plenty of big rocks and we found on a piece of concrete with wire? Lacks trees and shade, you can rent umbrellas at overpriced rates. Good idea, but a little more work on that. Female staff quite rude. I was expecting more.

Korzo

At the beginning of the 20th century, Korzo started to assume its modern-day outlines. The main Promenade and meeting-point for Rijeka citizens as well as the construction area used in building the symbolic palaces demonstrate various styles including Classical, Historical, Secessional, and Modernist. Urban regulations appeared in the latter half of the 19th century, but these meant only an intensification of the rate of raising the seabed (with sand), and grand public constructions which appear to have very developed the seabed. Even then, at the turn of the century, the picture is of a littoral town straitened by its walls. Today, is hard to believe that until the sea-trench was filled-in and the town walls pulled down, this was only a gravel sea coast with a few wooden embankments and storehouses, a shipyard and a city log house which traded in cereals, fish and salt.

Lots of outdoor cafes, restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, shopping, you name it...The street is crowded, but fun to walk up and down. Very popular with the locals, some of the side streets have a little more shade. This weekend there is a street faire with old time arts and crafts, native costumes, singing and dancing. All pretty interesting...

Gradski Toranj (City Tower)

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.

I spent three to four hours walking throughout city; much of splendor of Fiume still remains and I was lucky to bump into a local street food market; a good cross section of the culture was there, Many great building from the great days when it was park of Austria or Italy.
