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.

Behind the ruins of never finished... More

It was not easy to go around the area. There was not a sign of the main thins in town. The view from the top to the city was great. worth a visit. There is parking area nearby.

After a 15 minutes walk from out apartment we reached Kastav, and we weren't disappointed. The view, the Gothic gate, the old churches were impressive. A small town full of history and festivals.

Only 15 minut from Rijeka or Opatija and you are in beautyful small city where is time stop. Old buildings, shrink streets, realy autetntic cost vilage (despite it is on hill). Must see church with view on whole Kvarner. And dont forget there is Kukuriku restaurant, one of the best in Croatia with slow food dishes

The view in front of church st.Jelena is amazing and the walk through the streets of old town leaves you feel like you are in the 16th century. This town is dating back to 12th century when it was built as a castle with 9 towers. You can visit galleries, buy some local souvenir, like olive oil, homemade marmalade or... More
