We had a car and wanted to see a bit more of the countryside. It is a lovely quiet medieval town and we enjoyed walking around the narrow streets and soaking up the atmosphere.

Kastav is very good preserved old city on the hill with old stone houses and some city walls. There are some art shops, old churches and few nice restaurants and pubs. You can get there by car in only 15 min driving from Rijeka. (...More

Croatian friends took us up to Grad Kastav and the view alone was worth it. Really quaint old buildings and a never finished church!

Kastav is a pearl. If you hate parking problems, come in the evening. The view is always gorgeus. And the walk along a few narrow streets. Authentic. If you can, don’t miss evening concerts of any kind.
