After a 15 minutes walk from out apartment we reached Kastav, and we weren't disappointed. The view, the Gothic gate, the old churches were impressive. A small town full of history and festivals.

Only 15 minut from Rijeka or Opatija and you are in beautyful small city where is time stop. Old buildings, shrink streets, realy autetntic cost vilage (despite it is on hill). Must see church with view on whole Kvarner. And dont forget there is Kukuriku restaurant, one of the best in Croatia with slow food dishes

The view in front of church st.Jelena is amazing and the walk through the streets of old town leaves you feel like you are in the 16th century. This town is dating back to 12th century when it was built as a castle with 9 towers. You can visit galleries, buy some local souvenir, like olive oil, homemade marmalade or... More

You can walk first in the center of Kastav, then you can take one of three hiking trails in the woods, and then when you return you can eat in one of the restaurants, about middle range restaurants.

Kastav is a charming old town with narrow streets and old houses. There you can enjoy splendid view on Rijeka and Kvarner Bay and relax in one of many bars.

The best way to see the entire Kvarner Bay, the islands and small towns under the Učka mountain. The town itself is very nice and peaceful with lot of good coffee spots and restaurants. During the summer season, there are many concerts, plays and other cultural events worth visiting.

Near the city of Rijeka is located in Kastav, a beautiful little antique city. The narrow streets and squares where only cats lazily sunbathing, looking at the rare passers-by.
