Religious Tourism

Save to my planner

Kvarner is often visited by pilgrims. Their most frequent destination is the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Trsat in Rijeka, the oldest Croatian sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a pilgrimage destination devoted to Our Lady since 1291.

Trsat, situated in the eastern part of the city, rests at 135 m above sea level. It is today an international pilgrimage destination and a venue for holding various religious and other events. In June 2003, on the occasion of the Feast of Pentecost, Trsat was visited by Pope John Paul the Second who enjoyed a private prayer at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Trsat, at the altar decorated with a miraculous painting of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

A bronze statue called A Pilgrim to Trsat, dedicated in the Pope’s honor, is a constant reminder of his visit. In addition to the Trsat Sanctuary, Kvarner boasts many other pilgrimage destinations. In the silence of the churches and the ambiance created by the sounds of prayer and candlelight, pilgrims find tranquility, faith and spiritual peace.
