 TAXI FROM / TO OPATIJA
Opatija, this elegant tourist destination, lies at the centre of the Riviera with the longest tradition of tourism in Croatia. The very attractive geographic position, enabling its warm seas to be quickly reached from many cities in Central Europe (only about 500 km from Milan, Vienna and Münich), lush green scenery and a pleasant climate (45° 20’ north latitude) were some of the main reasons for its beginning and the quick development of its tourism at the end of the 19th century.

Built mainly at the turn of the 20th century, Opatija has remained in complete harmony with Nature right up until the present day. Well-maintained public gardens, the illuminated 12-km-long coastal promenade known as the "Lungomare", well-kept beaches and fountains provide a stunning backdrop for the villas and hotels that cater comfortably for up to 6,000 guests.Due to a relatively constant temperature (winter average 7.0 °C, summer average 21.9 °C), high air pressure and constant circulation of air, the climate in Opatija is relaxing and refreshing. The contrasts of sea and mountains, green parks and blue ocean, old buildings and modern comforts, noisy entertainment venues and quiet destinations for excursions all combine to make Opatija and its surroundings a very attractive tourist resort at any time of the year.

The tourist offering of Opatija includes its congress centre (with space for 500 to 800 delegates), 11 indoor swimming pools, wellness programmes, a casino, discotheques, a summer theatre with seating for 2,000, carnivals, festivals, and opportunities for shorter trips to nearby surroundings or all-day excursions to the Plitvice Lakes or Risnjak National Park, or even to Venice in Italy.
 
History

A small fishing settlement with a Benedictine abbey from which the town gets its name, along with the church of St. James, is first mentioned in the middle of the 15th century. Rijeka’s patrician, Iginio Scarpa, played a crucial role in the tourist history of Opatija.  In 1844 he decided to build a summer residence and called it after his wife, Angiolina. Numerous eminent guests came to visit this patrician and Opatija became a well-known meeting place. With investment from Vienna’s Southern Railways Company, in bay groves, amidst tall palms and subtropical plants, the building of many hotels, guest houses, villas, palaces, summer houses along with beaches, soon began. In 1884 Hotel Kvarner opened, in 1885 Kronprinzessin Stephanie opened – today named Imperial, and this was followed by the opening of Hotel Quississana - today named Opatija. After this a park, a sea promenade (lungomare) and a forest pathway were built. Famous for its mild climate, ensuring a pleasant stay throughout the year, Opatija began its rise to the top and in 1907 from 243 health resorts of the Austrian part of the Monarchy it came second, immediately after Karlovy Vary.  At the beginning of the 20th century, it had a 16 km long forest pathway along with a 7 km coastal promenade (lungomare). In 1912 there were 12 sanatoria with no less than 62 doctors.
 
Almost all members of the Austro-Hungarian imperial royal families visited Opatija headed by the emperor, Franz Josef. The Croatian Ban Josip Jelaèiæ, along with the German emperor, Wilhelm II, the Romanian royal couple, Karlo and Elizabeta, the Swedish-Norwegian king, Oskar II, all visited Opatija.  Anton Èehov, Gustav Mahler, Isadora Duncan, James Joyce…. and many more artists and politicians stayed here and Opatija, in its own unique way, marked their passage through history by erecting memorials to them.
