From Opatija there are a number of footpaths leading to Veprinac, passing through attractive natural forests.


Some of the of the fondest memories a visitor to Opatija returns home with are the tranquil and soul rejuvenating walks through the lush exotic parks and along the coastal footpaths. Indeed, Opatija was developed by the aristocratic and wealthy with gentle soothing exercise in mind.

The coastal strip, some 40 km in length, from the bay of Preluk in the north to the little town of Brsec to the south, is called the Opatija Riviera. It is one of the best known resort areas on the Adriatic with the longest tradition in tourism. The sub-tropical climate, magical beauty and rejuvenating atmosphere has over the years earned the Riviera an eviable reputation as both, a winter retreat and a popular summer resort.


Grand Hotel Adriatic

One of the most modern hotels in Opatija, a mere 200 meters from town centre, is situated amidst mediterranean vegetation which stretches all the way to the seaside and the hotel's beach.
