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.

One of the greatest attractions of this strange city! Go there, stay there whole day, enjoy the view, enjoy the tranquility if you visit this time of the year early in the day.

“rijeka and the gulf at your feet”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

if you have no problems walking you should try the stairs (trsatske stube) that take you from the center at sea level, or better, river level to the top and then turn and enjoy your achievement...

“pretty”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

It is placed in the most beautiful part of Rijeka- Trsat, on the east of the city. The most worthy thing there is a splendid wiew on the bay of Rijeka. This castle is really awesome because you can feel like you're in Roman time. I also had a great cup of coffee there in the sun. :)

“Lovely view and castle”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

You can enjoy the view overlooking the Kvarner bay and have a nice coffee at the bar situated within the walls. There is a small gallery and a souvenir shop inside.

The castle is well maintained and worth visiting, if you like history sites and castles alike. Be aware that this is 1/3 of the total site the castle was before on, as the rest collapsed in a big earthquake that occurred some 2 centuries ago. What remains is worthwhile visiting and the rest is being reconstructed slowly (very slowly).

Plenty of cafes nearby and on the way to it, during weekends this one of the spots for the locals so you could have a problem grabbing a spot to sit and have coffee.

“Trapped in the present”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Here, you will feel as though trapped in the present. You'd wish to live in medieval times and patrol it's walls and towers. It has a Roman castrum-like part which is closed to public as it's still being restaurated, but the rest of the castle and garrison grounds are open and well renovated. Lots of green spaces, antique and genuine items, and a nice caffe bar inside on of the towers with fantastic atmosphere.
The view over the city and Kvarner bay is absolutely stunning.
