Well it is time for me to tell you about the jewel of our (Croatian) coast so that you can fall in love and come to enjoy yourself.
Opatija is located in Kvarner bay (Istria), under the Učka mounting. It is a little town with friendly mediterian climate. The winters are very mild, and summers are not too hot because the city is protected with mountains and the islands. If you take a look at the history of this city you can go to the ancient 804. It is because of the friendly climate and the aerosol that this little town becomes interesting to many of rich people from the old days that have come here and build gorgeous villas. First of them has been called Villa Angeollina named after the wife of some rich merchant Iginija Scarp from the Rijeka. This was the beginning of the tourism area of the Opatija, and it was in year 1844. Villa Angiollina is surrounded with beautiful botanical garden created at “golden cut” model.
Opatija was favourite seaside resort to the Hapsburgs who have build luxury villas at the coast. Many of famous people from history and today have enjoyed them self in Opatija - emperors and princess of former monarchy, famous musicians and composers of old time, writers, members of royalty, and many famous people from our time.
