    Bakar

    Once at the terrace of a small bar, under a nice shade, the stinking industries, the black smoke of the chimney and everything else was forgotten. The beer was excellent and once we had two large beers for a refreshment, We were ready to drive further!

    These two photos were taken in 1988 from the town.

    The first shows various plants with a huge chimney and a lot of smoke.

    The second shows on the opposite bank of the bay a tanker boat loading or unloading some stinky liquid into the pipelines that show in the foreground.

    Below the Citadel is a three-nave church of St. Andrew, built in 1830. The church contains Baroque altars, the altarpiece by Girolamo da Santacroce (Holy Trinity) and the painting above the main altar by Janez Subic. The church treasury shelters a Romanesque cross from the 14th century, the reliquary of St. Ursula from the 16th century and several Baroque chalices. On the main altar of the church of the Holy Cross, which was reconstructed in the 17th century, is a crucifix from the late Gothic period.

    Castle

    The present day appearance is the result of numerous reconstructions and adaptations. The irregular trangle-like foundation of the Castle can be dated back to the 16th century. There was no investigations of previous phases so far. A more regular triangle-like ground-plan can be noticed at the southern two-storey residential part of the Castle, probably made so in the 17th century. The northern front of the Castle is also of interest.

    Bakar, 1989

    This photo shows almost the same view than the previous one and it might have been taken from almost the same place, as there are not so many places along the main road where you can park to take a photo ! However, it was taken in 1989, 16 years before the other one.

    Bakar, Zagrad and Primorje.

    Bakar, Zagrad and Primorje.
    2 more images

    The first photo was taken on July 2005. It shows the city of Bakar from the south, on the Jadransja Magistrale, the main road. In the background, another segment of the main road can be seen.

    The second photo is a close-up on the gigantic chimney that stands on the outskirts of the city. This kind of "monument" does not bring many tourists !

    The third photo is a close-up on the quays and the small harbor. This is the parts of the city called "Zagrad" and "Primorje". This landscape is much more appealing !
