One of the unique options that Rijeka offers is the Torpedo Factory. The first torpedo that was self-propelled was tested at that location in 1866. The launching ramp is the best preserved part of the factory, but the remains of the entire facility still exist.
The Roman Arch is another top landmark that deserves to be seen. It was originally thought to be a Triumphal Arch, but turned out to be a portal to the local pretorium. Located between two buildings on a narrow street, it is a unique site to enjoy in the city.
