An Afternoon in Trieste

One day someone mentioned the town of Trieste to me, I had no idea where it was or how accessible it was. But, after that, all I knew is that I would one day find a way to visit.  And I did…for the afternoon! Trieste is a tiny tiny port town in Italy located in the northeast of Italy, considered the capital of that region of Italy & one of the largest seaports in that region (Austro-Hungarian Empire region). Located so close to the border of Slovenia & the Adriatic coast, the architecture found throughout Trieste has developed an Austro-Hungarian and Slovenian influence mixed with the traditional classic style of  Italian Renaissance.

Explain the history of how the town came to be, the world-renowned art district that tourists flock to each year, the charming and boldly colored architecture found throughout the winding and wobbly cobblestone alleys. Walking through Riga in like walking through the pages of a fairytale but instead of me telling you why Riga should be on your bucket list, let me show you
