Something for everyone
The region in which we would like to invite you to is the Kvarner Bay in northwest Croatia.
It's location is unique: On one side bathed by the sea, protected on the other by mountain ranges, it offers up to 2,500 hours of sunshine a year round temperate climate.
The combination of the picturesque coastal towns and immediately adjacent forested mountain ranges provides something for everyone. It is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Croatia with a long tradition and history.
Pearl of the Adriatic
Opatija, the "Pearl of the Adriatic" as it is often called, is located in the center of the Kvarner Bay and has a 160-year-long tradition in tourism. In the 19th century Opatija became a winter resort for high society. This is also reflected in the architecture that still spreads elegance.
Opatija offers beautiful places to relax, but also a rich nightlife. Moreover, the open-air theater next to the beach Lido provides culture. But even outside the summer months numerous events are offered in Opatija.
In the surroundings of Opatija various water activities such as parasailing, motor boating, jet skiing, pedal boating and diving can be exercised. In Opatija are three diving schools
, which are open during the summer months for beginners and advanced divers.
The surrounding area of Opatija is also suitable for long bike rides. Especially recommended is driving with mountain bikes in the only 17 kilometers away nature reserve Ucka. There are eight official mountain bike trails
on which the beautiful mountains in the hinterland of Opatija can be explored and the views of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed by hiking, paragliding and Free Climben.
The famous waterfront "Lungomare" runs twelve kilometers from the picturesque harbor town Volosko through the center of Opatija to Lovran and is accompanied by numerous large and small beaches that are not crowded, even in summer.
Daily excursion boats
