Getting to Opatija

Welcome to Opatija – well known Pearl of Adriatic Sea!

Opatija is the largest city on the eastern coast of Istria, centrally located on the northern part of the Croatian Adriatic Sea along the so-called Kvarner Bay.
The unique city shines with quiet elegance and sumptuous beauty. Opatija’s villas and buildings of exceptional architectural value, surrounded by the evergreen mountain Učka, healing sea and
beautifully arranged parks, have perfectly combined the modern spirit and the benefits of a top tourist offer. An almost 12 kilometers long promenade alongside the sea, the famous Opatija „lungomare¬, stretch along the Opatija coastline from Volosko to Lovran and gives a particular charm to the city and its riviera. Because of its unique climate and temperature, Opatija is attractive not only in the hot summer months when offering refreshment, but in the winter as well, with its mild and warm temperatures because of which it was a popular resort among Austrian aristocracy since 19th century!
