Old Gateway or Roman Arch

The Old Gateway or Roman Arch is not a Roman triumphal arch, as was once presumed, but a representative main entrance to the centre of the Late Antique command compound of the Roman Tarsatica, an ancient town on whose ruins the medieval Rijeka was built.




Palace of Justice

The existing urban-architectural complex is mainly Art Nouveau style, constructed in the early 20th century, after a feudal castle, located on the site of today's Palace of Justice, was demolished.




City Tower

City Tower, a symbol of Rijeka and a good example of a typical round tower access-point, which lead into the fortified town. Today it dominates the central part of Korzo, although during its lifetime it was overtopped by more recently constructed buildings.


Stendarac

Since 1700 the Square of Riječka rezolucija has served as a playground for the children of the patricians, and this is where Stendarac is located, a stone flagpole erected as instructed by Emperor Maximilian.


Church of St. Fabian and St. Sebastian

Church of St. Fabian and St. Sebastian is a small building, but with a very long biography. It is all important, first of all, for the history of Rijeka’s health culture, since it is dedicated to the protector against the plague.


Synagogue

Today, the temple in Rijeka is the only purpose-built synagogue in Croatia. It is protected as immovable cultural heritage.




Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Leaning Tower

The Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary was never destined to become a cathedral, even though the walls are evidence that the church has been here for centuries.
