Opatija

Opatija, Queen of the Adriatic

Opatija, this elegant tourist destination, lies at the centre of the Riviera with the longest tradition of tourism in Croatia. The very attractive geographic position, enabling its warm seas to be quickly reached from many cities in Central Europe, lush green scenery and a pleasant climate were some of the main reasons for its beginning and the quick development of its tourism at the end of the 19th century. Well-maintained public gardens, the illuminated coastal promenade Lungomare, well-kept beaches and fountains provide a stunning backdrop for the villas and hotels that cater comfortably over 8,000 guests.
