At the very heart of the Astronomical Centre, which is comprised of an observatory, a small and a large hall and additional facilities, is a digital planetarium. In order to explain it better, we will compare it to the observatory - whereas in the observatory the visitors can observe a real image of the space via telescope, the planetarium uses digital technology in order to display a simulated picture of the universe. The digital planetarium in Rijeka is the only one of its kind in Croatia and the wider region. It is a hall in form of an amphitheatre, providing 50 seats and 2 additional seats for persons with limited mobility. Once comfortably seated, visitors can enjoy projections (live presentations) of the skyline and celestial objects or watch films on astrology and underwater world, which are displayed on an 8 m diameter dome above their heads.

The show was pretty good and the lecture too, but there was running slideshow while the staff was talking, so the things happened (the object appeared on the screen) but she couldn't slow them down. Pretty ridiculous...

Intriguing architecture with an even more intriguing and educational inside devoted to the great expanse - the universe. Plus the view as a bonus - it's a win.
