The city of Trieste is located in the north east of Italy and lies towards the end of a narrow strip of land between the Adriatic Sea and Slovenia, immediately south and east of Trieste. The city's history has been heavily influenced by its location at the head of the Gulf of Trieste, at the crossroads of Latin, Slavic and German cultures. The city has a number of theatres and has a thriving cultural scene for visitors to enjoy. The theatres in the city include the Opera Teatro Lirico Giuseppe Verdi, Politeama Rossetti, the Slovene Theatre in Trieste, the Teatro La Contrada and the Teatro Miela. A popular attraction in the city is the Castello Miramare which was built between 1856 and 1860 and is located on the waterfront around 8 km from the city. The castle's gardens are open to the public and contain a variety of trees and two ponds, one of which is noted for its swans and the other for its lotus flowers. There is also a Castle annex and a small chapel where a cross made from the remains of the 'Novara' is kept.
