Trieste was one of the oldest parts of the Habsburg Monarchy . In the 19th century, it was the most important port of one of the Great Powers of Europe. As a prosperous seaport in the Mediterranean region, Trieste became the fourth largest city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (after Vienna , Budapest , and Prague ). In the fin de siècle period at the end of the 19th century it emerged as an important hub for literature and music . Trieste underwent an economic revival during the 1930s, and Trieste was an important spot in the struggle between the Eastern and Western blocs after the Second World War .
