Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Coast
Categories: Architecture, City of Rijeka, Interiors
The Governor’s Palace is one of Rijeka ‘s most majestic buildings, a synonym for its rich and sometimes troubled past. Standing tall since 1897, today it is a homage to all that has passed, hosting the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Coast. With inspiration drawn from the Italian Renaissance, the historicist white stone façade gazes protectively at the city centre. The Palace’s interior is adorned with double marble stairs, a spacious atrium with natural roof lighting as well as the Marble Hall, coated entirely with polychrome marble.
