Feel the charm of vibrant mix of Austro-Hungarian Habsburg brilliance and industrial grit in the third largest Croatian city – Rijeka. Its special Mediterannean charisma and joyful atmosphere is missed by many tourists and it’s a great loss for the ones who passed it by on their way to the more famous Dalmatian islands. First established by Romans as Tarsaticae as a port at the Kvarner gulf, it was later inhabited by Slavic tribes in the 7th century, became a part of the Austrian empire in the 15th century. The history of Rijeka is very tangled and sometimes marked by very unfortunate events like the earthquake in 1750 that destroyed the fortifications and many old buildings. But still this lively dynamic city thrived through the centuries and blossomed.


Walk along the pretty pedestrian Korzo district and gaze at the pretty Austrian imperial style buildings.

Take a look at the Clock Tower built before the earthquake of 1750 and decorated with the paintings of Leopold I and Charles VI, the Emperors of Austria. Its clock was made in the 17th century and works perfectly. You can also take a look at the Roman gate which was the part of the entrance to the now nonexistent Roman port.

Go up one of the highest hills around and marvel at the Gothic style Trsat Castle built in the 13th century. Get up to the observation point and admire the picturesque panorama view over the city. The dungeon of the fortress is now used as an art gallery.

Wonder at the spectacular collection of artifacts of the Rijeka City Museum. The collection of jewelry that once belonged to the rich inhabitants of the city and the old theatrical costumes deserve your special attention.

Visit the Natural History Museum situated in an old beautiful 19th century mansion and take a look at paleontological artifacts and other interesting geological, botanical and sea life objects. Don’t miss the lovely botanical garden too.

Take bus 7A from the central area and head to the Observatory and Astronomical Centre.
