This wonderful Italian city organically combines features from three very different cultures. The reason for this is in the fact that Trieste was under the rule of Austria for more than six centuries. The neighboring Slovenia has also caused a huge influence on the city. All these unique features have been intertwined with the sophisticated culture of Italy. While walking on the streets of the city you will notice that notifies and signs here usually have two types of labels on Italian and Slovenian languages.
Golfo di Trieste Bay is, without a doubt, one of the most remarkable places of the city. Here you will see snow-white yachts that are moored off the coast, small houses with red tiled roofs, as well as several restaurants with delicious food. Naturally, the impact of the three countries has affected the local kitchen as well, so the local restaurants will be genuinely interesting to visitors. Such a wide choice of dishes is hard to find in any other place throughout Italy.
The old part of the city is the location of numerous shops. Here you can also see street musicians and clowns who entertain passers-by and show their colorful performances to them. Your visit to Cathedral of St. Justus will surely become one of the most exciting excursions. The cathedral was built in the 14th century during the reign of the Austrian Empire. Via della Cattedrale is one of the most picturesque streets of this place. It looks much like a quarter of a typical Slovenian town.
