Built over four years in the 1890s by the Hungarian architect, Alajos Hauszmann, also responsible for the most famous and ornate coffeehouse in Budapest, the Governor's Palace was where Italian poet and self-styled leader of Rijeka. Gabriele D’Annunzio seized power in the immediate aftermath of World War I. From here, he would have seen the battleship sent by Rome in 1920. Hauszmann's huge, sumptuous state rooms now house the History & Maritime Museum; the Rijeka City Museum is set in a pavilion alongside.
