City Tower

The City Tower is a symbol of the town of Rijeka. Originally, it represents a typical pervious
tower which provided access to the fortified city or the “Old Town”, as it called today. The City
Tower still dominates the central part of the promenade, although it has been surpassed by many
other buildings over the years. It was built in the Middle Ages, and on the lower part of the
facade of the tower several baroque phases are visible. In the high relief under the clock
Rijeka’s coat of arms can be seen. The sculpture of Rijeka’s two-headed lion was once located
on top of the tower. In World War I, the soldiers cut off one of the heads to make it look more like
the Roman eagle and not that of Austria. After World War II, the lion was completely removed.
