Traditional excursion to Kastav...

The following local museums are open to visitors:

stari grad Kastav•    Osojnak's Kettle Workshop – was opened in 2007 in a former kettle workshop with the aim of presenting various tools and equipment, as well as some items made of copper. Osojnak's Kettle Workshop is one of the rare and most famous workshops of Milko Osojnak, the last kettle maker from Kastav. The workshop was used to produce a wide range of items of copper, such as boilers for making brandy, dishes for agriculture, or various household items. The workshop has been preserved in its original state with old bellows, fireplace and anvil, and a collection of tools and artefacts that used to belong to the artisan Milko Osojnak.

•    Viko's Coopery in Kastav – was opened in 2003 in a former cooperage, which today includes a collection of tools for producing barrels and a wide range of other items made of wood.

•    In Idica's Bakery in Pelini visitors can see how an ancient wood-fired oven looked like. The oven is hundred years old and can still be used to bake bread. Local women used to bring firewood in bundles from the nearby Loza forest. A baker would gain recognition depending on the taste, appearance and the overall quality of bread, and the tidiness of the bakery. People in Kastav still remember Ida-Idica Bačić as an excellent cook and baker who used to bake bread for many years in her bakery in Pelini. In memory of her and other bakers from Kastav, this authentic place – Idica's Bakery – has been preserved as one in the row of local ethnographic museums in Kastav.

•    Kastav Museum Collection – this is a separate collection of the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka, which was opened to the public in 1981 and re-opened after renovation on 6 June 2005. It is located near the town gate (the vault at the entrance to the old town of Kastav). This extensive collection includes approximately seven hundred items of archaeological, ethnographic, cultural and historical value, presenting the heritage of the Kastav area from prehistory through to the mid-20th century.

Visit the ancient hilltop town of Kastav – a site of historical, architectural and geographical interest and an attractive excursion destination!
