After passing through and listening with the audio guide to the history of the picturesque Trieste coastline, a strip of land suspended between the Karst and the sea, we arrive at the culmination of our tour: Duino Castle. A fairytale castle. Perched on a karst spur, it dominates the entire Gulf of Trieste and overlooks the remains of Duino's Old Castle, to which the legend of the white lady is linked. The castle tells the story of the Thurn und Taxis family who made this aristocratic residence a wonderful pearl overlooking the Adriatic Sea and promoter of culture and art. Among the castle's regular guests was the Bohemian poet Rainer Maria Rilke, to whom the panoramic Rilke Trail is dedicated, the place of inspiration for the famous Duino Elegies. Visiting the castle or walking along the Rilke Path, one feels the call of the infinite horizon, when the sea joins the sky in an endless embrace.
