Trieste

Trieste is a northern Italian port city on the Adriatic Sea right on the border with Slovenia in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia with 205535 inhabitants. The city is characterized by it is its Roman origins and its medieval past: the castle, the cathedral and the Roman basilica. Elegant classical ruins and buildings in the Art Nouveau style adorn the streets, as well as the impressive churches of various denominations reflect the recent history of the city. As the city was tired from the wars between the 13th and 14th century, it finally went under the protection of Leopold III of Habsburg-Austrian duke of Austria, Styria and Carinthia. Initially planned as a mere protectorate, it was in the next decades a possession of the Habsburgs. At the end of the First World War, the city remained Habsburg possession and became both economically and culturally an important center of the empire. Trieste stands primarily for attractions, arts and culture, but also scores by their proximity to the beaches of the Adriatic. The Old Town offers some of the most beautiful sights with the Teatro Romano, the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, the San Giusto Cathedral and the Castle of San Giusto.
