There is no better way to understand the heritage of the Croatian Riviera than with a visit to Opatija's historic hotels. These hotels were the first built on the Adriatic Sea coastline, beginning with Hotel Kvarner in 1884.

With Art Nouveau and neoclassical architectural styles, the original hotels laid the groundwork for Opatija's rise as a popular tourist destination. With the help of an ideal climate and accessible European location, visitors came to bask in the style and sophistication of the seafront city. Austrian Emperor Franz Josef I, writer James Joyce and dancer Isadora Duncan were a few of Opatija's more famous guests.

They enjoyed richly-decorated walls, high ceilings, antique furniture and spacious rooms – all features you can still appreciate today. Modern touches such as swimming pools and spa centers only enhance your trip.

Stay at one of the traditional hotels in Opatija and transport yourself back in time when elegance reigned.
