Castles in Trieste

This is the Miramare Castle, and the name means "to see the sea." It is an appropriate name, as the castle has some fantastic views of the sea and much of the inside is modeled after boats and life on the sea. It was gorgeous on the inside, but I couldn't take photos of the interior.

The Duino castle was very different from other castles I've visited. Apparently it is still used as a private residence now, instead of going fully museum. Rainer Maria Rilke once lived here briefly.
