Opatija is a picturesque town on the Adriatic coast which is steeped in the Mediterranean spirit and offers a multitude of attractions and pleasant experiences. In Opatija, you can experience the favourable microclimate and enjoy the unique freshness of the sea air while taking a walk along the Lungomare, one of the most beautiful seaside promenades. Lungomare was built at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century and it covers a 10-kilometer long stretch from Lovran to Volosko. Doctors were involved in the construction of this special promenade, so its shape and position additionally contribute to the rehabilitation and prevention of various diseases. Discover the Mediterranean through Opatija and feel the magic of the sun and sea, cultural heritage, nature, gastronomy, and the unique lifestyle!
