Opatija is a picturesque town situated in the Gulf of Kvarner, just 13 km from the city of Rijeka. Once you get to this special city, you may be tempted to spend all of your time indulging its beaches, sun and the sea, but try not to do it, as Opatija offers lots of other stuff to see and do as well. Being a city rich in history and tradition, at every corner, you can admire buildings of completely different styles: Renaissance, Secession, Baroque, Gothic etc. Opatija has it all.
It has been a popular touristic summer and winter destination since the 19th century when nobles and aristocrats used to enjoy its calmness and beauty and it preserved that reputation ‘till today.

The first hotel ever built along the Adriatic coast was Hotel Quarnero in Opatija, built in 1884. As we previously stated, Opatija is one of the few places in Croatia to attract tourists all year round. This is not only for its beauty but also for the popular and luxurious wellness offers. Many
