Owner description: 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.

“Trsat Castle- beatiful scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Enjoyed a quick visit to Trsat Castle. Admission is free and the views were spectacular. You climb up the old castle steps to a beautiful turret and have 360 degree views. They also have a small gift shop which was inexpensive.

“beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Trsat castle is small, but still worth visiting. We walked there ( kids 5 and 10 yrs old). 490 steps up. The view was beautiful. We didnt pay anything to go in.

“Trsatska gradina and Trsat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Trsat is very popular residential part of Rijeka,not very big, the castle is also not large but interesting to visit, has a nice view and nicely kept surrounding. Don t remember if there is a fee, Id say there isn t. Mary s Trsat, Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Trsat is worth visiting. Just around the church is a very nice park with a lot of tree shadows. There are few nice cafes, two pizza places, Guardian, also near church, recommended to me but haven t been there, and a little bit further (walking distance) Pampas, which I recommend, also Pizzeria. If You would like something other than pizza, on Trsat ... hidden between streets iz konoba Tarsa, (use map or navigation) more expensive than pizza places, quite popular in Rijeka. I d say very good. There is quite a long walk You can take on Trsat, there is also new student campus. I d recommend a few hours to see whole Trsat, just castle takes less time.
