There is a pleasant trail in the woods behind where... 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.

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.

Beautiful old city on a hill with great view of city of Opatija and Ucka mountain. Also a great promenade with two horse ranches where you can feed and ride horses
