History and elegance on every step of the way
Opatija as residence of European aristocracy is the living reminder of the times when the mighty Austro-Hungarian court was ruling Europe.
The architecture and the culture remained virtually intact throughout all this time. Even today, you can take a rest on the very deck where the aristocratic elite of those times had been sipping their wines and cognacs while enjoying the crystal clear, blue sea of the Kvarner Bay.
It connects the entire Riviera. The promenade stretches from the municipal centre, Opatija, on the northeast corner of the Istrian peninsula, all the way down. Down to the picturesque towns of Volosko, Ika, Ičići, Lovran, Medveja and Mošćenička Draga. Kilometers of enjoyable walking or trekking along the blue sea in a warm Mediterranean climate.
By the way, if you follow the sea line of the Istrian peninsula, you’ll find yourself on the sand of the ancient gladiator arena. For centuries, it was entertaining both patricians and plebeians.
