The feeling you get when visiting this site is absolutely indescribable! This is a place for mediation over the horrors human kind is capable of. It's a must-see!

On my first visit years ago, I was amazed that a Nazi prison and oven were located so close to a busy section of a major town. While the Risiera doesn't have modern museum technology components, this is a must-see to learn about a chilling aspect of European history and pay homage to the many victims who lost their lives here. Easily accessible by public transportation. We didn't see a place to pay on any of our visits, but donations can be made in the book store.

By taxi from Trieste city the fare is about 10 euros but it's easy to catch a bus back. We got the number 10. It is well worth laying th 4 euros for the audio guide as little if the written info is translated into English. Plan to spend about 2 hours here but there isn't much else close by in terms of cafés etc. Not for the faint hearted, thus is not a comfortable place to visit but well worth the effirt

It's a kind of sight that makes you think about all injustices and atrocities that happened and are still happening all over the world. A must-see for youngsters who have to learn something about WW2 and condemn atrocities that happened then

This monument allows remembering one of the worst part of the Second World War, i.e., the deportation and killing of Jews by the Nazis. It is a very sad feeling that you may feel while visiting it. Thus, it is an important lesson to the new generations about what should never happen again, but it is not the top place to visit if the goal is holiday and fun.
