While there are certainly multiple beautiful hilltop views of Rijeka, Cres, and Krk, Kastav offers an amazing view with the added benefit of offering historic, cultural, and gastronomic delights. Park near Kukuriku and head toward the church of Sveta Jelena. As you go up, notice the artsy poster boards sharing short stories about local lore. Take in the view from... More

Car-drivers need to get to Kastav before mid-morning. Car-parking close to the historic town square is limited. There are designated carparks further down the hill. Kastav maybe be well known for the series of variable length walks through the adjoining forests, but for us the town was well worth visiting. The town tourist agency has developed the interactive "Kušajmo Pricu"... More

First weekend of October is the most crowded period for Kastav city, concerts, stands with homemade produce, liqueur, sausages and cabbage made on the spot, ox on the spit. So if you are into big crowds go the on the first weekend of October and enjoy the young wine festival, if not, any other time is fine because there are... More

City with a small, partially walled historic center and thousand year old soul. Views from many of it's ramparts, towers and forts over the Kvarner bay to the south, or Gorski Kotar mountains to the north. Great climate, usually a few degrees cooler than Rijeka during the summers. Clean, tidy and well organized, you can enjoy wandering it's tight streets... More

Beautiful town above Rijeka. Gorgeous views wherever you look. Only down side...we had a storm roll in. Otherwise, on a clear day the views would have been even better (if that's possible)
