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.

The castle itself is very simple. Not too much to see but the views from it are very good. There's no admission fee to visit the castle so you may as well, stop by.

A small 13 century castle of Trsat is perched high on a hill overlooking Rijeka. Can be reached by bus, taxi or walk up 500 steps :)
Entry is free, there are great views of Rijeka and Kvarner bay. There is a small cafe bar inside the castle and during summer there are also various musical performances. Very relaxing atmosphere. Great photo opportunities. Some small souvenir shops inside the castle.
Right next to it there is a famous church, historical monument and pilgrimage site, worth visiting too!

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.

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.
