Kvarner Pearls: Rijeka & Opatija: Rijeka is a multicultural heart of Europe that meets all people of good will with its arms wide open. That is the city to be seen when looking down from Trsat Castle! The castle’s history dates back to prehistoric times and the Illyrian tribe of Iapydes, followed by the Romans who built their fort there as well, and many other sovereigns who left their unique traces in this magnificent fortification.
