Through several thematic units, the exhibition follows the development of this port by the city: from the Middle Ages and the events that preceded the conferral of free port status for Rijeka in 1719, through the reigns of Emperor Charles VI and Empress Maria Theresa and the first half of the 19th century, when the idea of constructing a new port west of the Rječina River emerged, to the most significant era in its history, the 1880s and 1890s.
