The Opatija coast, the most renowned tourist destination on the Croatian Adriatic, lies at the foot of Mount Učka and combines all the benefits of a climatic health resort with that of a seaside resort. A tradition of tourism and culture which dates back more than a century and a half, and a pleasant healthy climate with lush green vegetation, help create the perfect ambience for relaxation and wellness as well as an active holiday. In the 19th century Austro-Hungarian nobleman built spacious villas and spent their winters in Opatija because of its very mild Mediterranean climate. Today you can still see this Austro-Hungarian noble heritage in the architectural styles of the original villas. The only difference is that today these villas are hotels. Most of them are situated next to the famous «lungo mare» walking path which is 11 km long and winds along the sea. Parks with beautiful indigenous plants cover a large part of the Opatija Riviera. Opatija and its Austro-Hungarian flair, which marks this town even after 120 years, is an ideal choice for those who are looking for luxury and splendor. Opatija is often called the "Croatian Monte Carlo." Its trendy villas and luxurious hotels provide accommodation for guests who enjoy a mild climate where they can sit out on terraces or at a cafe and unwind in traditional style. Young persons tend to drink cocktails in one of the lounges rather than going to discotheques. Opatija is a synonym for luxury and is the right choice for all who wish to have a good time or simply relax in splendor on their holiday.
