The Rijeka Astronomical Center

  Sveti Križ 33      (+385-51) 45 57 00     more than a year ago
Star gazers and those passionate about astronomy look no further as you’re about to enter the first astronomical center in Croatia. As it is positioned in the city, up on the hill of Sveti Križ, getting there by public transport is easy and available via bus line 7a from the city centre (Delta). It is set in a building built in 1941 as a military fortress.
Subsequently, in 2001, Rijeka’s first observatory was established. A planetarium hall was installed into an already existing fortress in 2009. The Astronomical Center Rijeka now encompasses an observatory, planetarium and other additional contents for learning more about astronomy. During summer, every Wednesday at 20:00 there is a special film screeining for foreign tourists in English language and stargazing with the telescope in observatory every Saturday at 22:00 (weather allowed). For detailed opening times and schedule of planetarium shows and observatory please call (+385 51) 45 57 00 or check schedule here.
