Welcome to Kastav!

The town of Kastav and its surroundings are synonymous with rich history, geographical diversity, interesting architecture and a unique tourist offer.

Situated, as one poet said “ponad mora, kano soko” ("above the sea, like a hawk"), so similar and yet so different from other towns in this region, with its soul in a nest made of stone, it is large enough for everyone willing to experience it in its wholeness.

Kastav gives something to everyone and at the same time receives something in return. One who has listened once to the echo of their footsteps on the ancient cobblestone that many have walked before returns to it over and over again.

Even in the days when streets are teeming with activity “aš se va Grade vaveki neš\' dogaja” (“because in Kastav, there is something always going on”), Kastav invites a silent dialogue between the past and the present. It is when the closeness of a person and a city develops into something greater and more meaningful.
Aware of its charm, yet never self-sufficient, Kastav is waiting for you!
