Old monumental building rationaly designed with big rooms and wide halls, surrounded by park for school educational purposes, repurposed for medical.
During the period of construction from 1855 to 1857, a huge three-story historicist building was built in a park on the seashore (now an earthfilled coastal area). It has a horseshoe-shaped floor plan, wide corridors with an amphilade of rooms along all façades and rhythmic rows of windows. The main façade is oriented to the south, with a centrally placed main portal under a gazebo with a rich decoration of lace-shaped iron mesh. The central avant-corps is ended by a prominent attic crown at the top. The corners are accentuated by pairs of polygonal pilasters whose capitals merge with the attic cornice of blind arcades. The overall impression of the building is romanticist with reminiscences of medieval burgs, and so represents a unique example of a school building built in the style of early historicism in Rijeka's architecture. The building houses classrooms, teachers’ offices and a boarding school for cadets, future officers. A harbour was built next to the Academy building, with a mast for naval exercises erected in the courtyard (neither exists today).
