IMHO Trieste has it all plus more, such as world class educational and cultural institutions.

Quite simply...

Hey Neorion, you are quite a fan of Trieste ! Come visit us again. We can have a beer together

I read that quite a number of important architects who built on the Ringstraße in Vienna, also worked on buildings in Trieste towards the end of the 19th century.

I wonder however, if those nearly 600 years of Austrian rule have left any other trace except for some architecture in Trieste?


But anyway, Trieste looks magnficent today, a great city to visit and most certainly also to live in. I guess the fact that Slovenia is now in the Schengen area and has the Euro as well does not hurt either, and moves the city more towards the center again.

Yes, Trieste will be the first capital of a new euro-region called 'Alpe-Adria' , a great project to increase economical and cultural cooperation within Italy (Friui), Austria (Carinthia), Slovenia and Croatia (Istria). Four countries that share a common historical and cultural heritage in a territory that suffered too much from the political and etnical great divisions of the 20th century..
Anyway, amazing pictures Urbane, Trieste is one of my favourite cities in Europe. I just wanted to remember of the old times in which the city had one of the most brilliant and avant-guarded intellectual life in Europe..When you could go to Caffè degli specchi (am I right?) and meet Joyce, Freud, Svevo, Bartol, Rilke, as far as many others scientists, writers and intellectuals.

I know that Theophil Hansen, the great Danish architect of the magnificent neoclassical Austrian Parliament on the Ringstraße, also worked in Trieste.

Miramare

Time for more photos of Trieste. This time it’s Miramare, a castle and park built under wishes of Maximilian, the brother of the Emperor of Austria-Hungary Franz Josef. Maximilian lived in the castle for a while before moving to Mexico where he was offered the title of Emperor of Mexico. He was executed by Mexican liberals in Queretaro in 1867.

The castle was built between 1856 and 1860:

The beautiful park around the castle:















A view over the Grignano marina from the other side of the park:



A marine park protecting the coast around the castle was created by the WWF:

Very interesting photos. Trieste looks like a handsome city. I particualy like those pedestrian streets with the large trees and cafe's. Only thing I didn't like was the waterfront area in front of the town hall (first few photos on page 1). It looks terribly lame and boring, which is a shame as such a waterfrontage in downtown is a cities greatest asset.

I love those hills around there and it reminds me a bit of Genoa.
