SYMBOLS Stories of cultural life.


Giovanni Kobler wrote the most important book on the history of Rijeka.

He studied law in Zagreb, worked for many years in the municipal services and practiced law in his hometown. He was a well-educated historian, a tireless researcher of archives and a collector of basic historical material for the study of Rijeka’s past.

The result of his many years of efforts is the three-volume book “Historical Testimonies of the Liburnian City of Rijeka” (1896), published at the expense of Rijeka municipality after the author’s death, an outstanding work for anyone wishing to explore the history of Rijeka.
