Direct rail line Trieste to zagreb ?

by alectrevor

I"ve been looking at timetables of train for Trieste to Zagreb. They all seem to go in a loop route via Jesenice, don"t they go direct via ljublijana, is the line under repair or something?

There seems to be one train per day (per night, actually) from Trieste to Ljubljana.

Same with Venice and Ljubljana. I don't think it's anything to do with the line...I think there is been a fairly long-standing disagreement of some sort between Trenitalia and the Slovenian authorities (have forgotten any other details I once knew).

You might consider taking a bus from Trieste to Ljubljana, and then getting the train to Zagreb from there. Bus info here:

Unfortunately Jirzi is right and unfortunately the managers of Trenitalia deserve a painful spanking from a "Krampusz" instead of sweets form Santa.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Companions_of_Saint_Nicholas

Italian railway managers try their best to ensure, Italy will be an ISLAND, without international trains crossing the borders.

We can't do anything beyond praying to St. Nick - he should take the strongest "Krampusz" with him if visiting these managers - and no mercy to their buts!

OK, that's better link - bad Italian children, too, know who "Krampusz" is. :-)

I guess, this "Krampus" is for really big boys (and not necessarily bad ones):

Thanks GyuriFTs. Very interesting, i had never heard about Krammpus the mythical creature, we could do with one in UK for our bad children [ and MPs ]. My travel plans are at a very early stage, so will work out another route. Thanks again

Travel Tips for Trieste

Wonderful and diverse architecture

by rexvaughan

Sitting on the hillside overlooking the beautiful Adriatic coastline, Trieste has had a diverse history of relationships to various countries, empires and rulers. One of the results of this is an amazing diversity of architecture. Some really lovely buildings greet you at almost every turn and it is a mix of art nouveau, monumental and neoclassical. This adds a real beauty and dignified cosmopolitan feel to the city. This is a busy and bustling city with lots of heavy traffic in places, but its attractiveness offsets that nicely.

The Grand Canal is lined with nice buildings, some with really appealing design like the red diagonals on the first building on the left of the photo.

The second picture is just a building we encountered while waiting for a bus. It is just behind the cathedral and forum on San Giusto hill. It is obviously a fairly new building but someone has done a wonderful job with the row of colorful designed tiles at the top. The large floral hanging basket on the balcony just sets it off.

The third photo is not a particularly beautiful building but is 900-1000 years old. It is the Church of San Silvestri just up the hill from the Roman theater. Unfortunately it was not open so we couldn't see inside. I sort of stand in awe of buildings that have been standing for a millenium! In our county, we implode them after about 25 years!

The fourth photo is just the top of St. Anthony's Church with wonderful statuary. I don't know who they are, but the halos indicate it must be a row of saints.

Viale XX settembre

by Mikebond

Viale XX settembre is a long boulevard and it is very important in the cultural life of Trieste, since most cinemas and the main theatre (Politeama Rossetti, see my tip in the nightlife section) are located here. Moreover, famous writer Italo Svevo was born in this street.
Today, the boulevard looks different from what it looked in this photo: the lower part, from via Carducci to the Rossetti theatre has been completely repaved and is now a fully pedestrian zone. The paving of the upper part, however, is still in bad conditions and hasn't been closed to traffic, since there aren't any cinemas or restaurants there.

Serbian Orhtodox Church

by Ekaterinburg

I'd never before been inside a Serbian Orhodox Church so I was very pleased to get a chance to visit the Church of San Spiridione in Trieste. It looks Byzantine in style and the blue roofs reminded me of Greek churches but as the exterior on the Canal side was completely covered in scaffolding it was difficult for me to note many of the details. Inside however it was dark and mysterious with flickering candles illuminating silver and gold. This church was opened in 1868 during the period of Slovenian dominance in Trieste. Nearby is one of the largest synagogues in Europe, the Tempio Israelitico and the neo-classical Church of St Antonio Nuovo. These, along with the Greek Orthodox Church Of St Nicholas, reflect the many influences which Trieste has come under during its history: Serbian, Slovenian, Hapsburg, Italian, Venetian........

Miramar castle was built...

by MATIM

Miramar castle was built between 1856 and 1860 by architect Carl Junker on the will of Maximilian of Habsburg.
The castle is build on a rock and has a beautiful view over the sea and Trieste.
Behind the castle lies a beautiful garden, where you can make endless walks.

Piazza Goldoni

by croisbeauty

Piazza Goldoni is the most bussies square of Trieste and probably the best meeting point in the town because from here you can easily reach all directions. Great many of the major city highlights are situated in a walking distance, especially the Capitoline Hill which can be reached by the monumental staircase above the tunnel, situated on the right hand.
Moreover, many city bus-lines atarts and ends here.
