The mitteleuropean city!
Trieste is the fulcrum of the border mittleuropean culture, with an eye to the Adriatic Sea and the other to the harsh karst headland. Surrounded by the scents of the Mediterranean, it is bright and shining more than ever when the air is made crisp by the wind. The beautiful buildings of Trieste are in neoclassical, Art Nouveau, Eclectic and Baroque style. They fit in well with Roman remains, eighteenth century and Hapsburg buildings.
