Sightseeing in Rijeka - what to see. Complete travel guide

Rijeka The largest port city in Croatia and a major transportation center, Rijeka is also a popular tourist area.

The central part of the city, which is called Korzo, is the most notable in Rijeka. There is absolutely no transport here and all streets are pedestrians only. During your walk in this city you will be able to see most popular shops and restaurants, visit new movie theaters, or simply relax in a park. One of the most colorful markets of the city is also located here. Visitors usually adore traditional gifts of Rijeka, which the locals call moric. These are small items depicting heads of Moor made of silver. These may be small brooches, pendants or earrings. Many interesting legends are associated with this kind of souvenir and every trader or a local resident will gladly tell you a couple of them.
There are also several historical attractions in the city. They are mostly located in the so-called Old Town. The City Tower, which has been standing here since ancient times, is the symbolic entrance to the Old Town. It is decorated with images of the great Austrian Emperors Charles VI and Leopold I. Don’t forget to visit Trsat Castle as this is one of the most significant architectural complexes of Rijeka. The castle is located on one of the highest hills of the city. After the excursion in the castle you can go to the observation area and enjoy the beautiful panorama of the city. The construction of the castle took place in the 13th century. In order to reach the entrance to the castle from the foot of the hill, visitors will need to pass 538 steps of steep stairs. Those tourists, who wish to make the excursion more comfortable, can use a funicular lift. Besides the beautiful castle, which is built in the late Gothic style, the hill is the location of Church of Trsat Mother of God and Franciscan Monastery. These are the most important religious sights of Rijeka.
