The Opatija region's initial success as a holiday destination for the Viennese elite is in part down to the area's pleasant year-round Mediterranean climate. Many of the town's grand residences now accommodate luxurious hotels, maintaining a connection to its illustrious past.
The spectacular Villa Angiolina, which has hosted many famous people throughout the ages, offers a tantalising glimpse into Opatija's aristocratic history.
Opatija offers a range of spa holidays, framed by beautiful landscaped parks and gardens and the clear waters of the Adriatic. Still fashionable today, this is a town that offers more than a taste of the class and high living of decades past.
