Trieste is at the head of the Gulf of Trieste and has a very long coastline, free sea access in Barcola and is surrounded by grassland, forest and karst areas. Being spared cold waves in winter by the maritime influence, the city has a subtropical climate rare for its relatively high latitude.
There are also other national and international names for the city such as “Città della Barcolana”, “Trieste città della bora”, “città del vento”, “Trieste città mitteleuropea”, “Trieste città della scienza – City of Science”, “City of the three winds”, “Vienna by the sea” or “City of coffee”.

Art deco is the predominant decorative art style of the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by precise and boldly delineated geometric shapes and strong colors and used most notably in household objects and in architecture.
