The Orthodox Church of St Nicholas was built by Hencke in 1787. The street going from the clock tower to the sea takes its name. The facade of the church is Central European Baroque. The plans of the architect can still be seen, although the church was partially destroyed by an earthquake. Migrant Serbs, who served as interpreters in trade between Turks and Austrians, were the majority of the Orthodox community in the city of Rijeka. It is said that they insisted on getting permission to build and were so insistent that they annoyed people in Rijeka. The church is near the sea, visible to all, and especially Orthodox citizens who then began to build their houses around the church, a little way away from the city walls, but on a busy street. In the church there are classic icons, a baroque desk, and older objects that the Orthodox community acquired later.
Ivan Kobler Square is near the tower of the city's old door step. When arriving by sea, you'll enter the medieval Rijeka. There you'll be in the heart of the old city. The current Koblerov square was the Placa, and has a lower surface that's somewhat narrower than the community center of the city from the Middle Ages. The illustrations show how old the city center is, with its clock tower and city hall, and the houses of the important people. In the north, the patrician-dominated Rijeka Castle, and to the east there's the main church where the faithful used to gather. In the south, near the port and commercial center, the pier, the walls of the city, is where you can find what was the center of secular life. It's where people listened city messenger announcements municipal signed agreements, buying and selling, outside or in tents on the ground floor of the houses, which are still visible today.
The Korzo is the central artery of Rijeka. It is a lively pedestrianized street which is always very busy and whose name comes from the Italian Corso, which means the main shopping street of a city. The Korzo took on its current form at the beginning of the twentieth century. The main promenade is the main meeting place for people in the city and the street monuments have also become symbols of the city. The style is classic, modern and urban. Building in the city during the late nineteenth century damaged Korzo's beauty a little but there are beautiful buildings from pre-communist times. There were small coastal houses near the walls but these were destrotyed and replaced by newer town houses. There is something for everyone in the Korzo - bars, restaurants and shopping and in summer there are concerts and festivals.
