The main memory of the city Rijeka is actually here. The first sight I met Rijeka I felt that it's a normal city like others, not a big one. But, after visiting this area, I think the city is tranquil and sophisticated. These old buildings offer a holistic peaceful atmosphere around. You will feel like you are at a country... More

Kastav is a small, cute town with narrow streets that you can walk through in ten minutes. It's got a very interesting church ruin called Crekvina, it's got good cafes, a pizzeria, and the view from the terrace in front of the church is wonderful. It's worth a visit.

Residing in Kastav (Hotel Kukuriku) gives you a wonderful option of combining a gourmet stay in a little village with sightseeing just around the corner in Rijeka, Opatija or a day at the sea at Krk Island, or like. The area is beautiful and taking a cosy walk in Kastav itself in the evening is for sure a nice end... More

Great place to spend your Sunday. Relaxed atmosphere with great view overlooking the surrounding towns and the stunning sea. Plenty of good restaurants to choose from. There's also an ancient ruin of church which the local community regularly uses as the romantic space for performances at night throughout the summer. There is a pleasant trail in the woods behind where... More

Kastav is a beautiful and historical town located about northwest of Rijeka and about northeast of Opatija in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. I like to visit it on their Bela Nedeja days in October with my boyfriend because they always serve good food and nice wine. They have small streets and houses and a really wonderful view at the church. Beautiful,... More

Whilst driving around we stumbled upon this old town that was the capital of the area in the past. Many of the homes and buildings are several hundred years old and the town has some very nice restaurants. In summer they hold music festivals there and it is a must see place when travelling in the area.

Nice old town (once the capital of the region). The rich gastronomic offer (from pizzeria to 5 star hotel), beautiful view of the entire Kvarner bay. During the summer festival 'Kastav Summer' (music, drama, exhibitions), Blues festival etc. Throughout the year several galleries offer the possibility to enjoy in the art of local artists. Behind the ruins of never finished... More
