"This is the easy part, but..." Opatija Off The Beaten Path Tip by lauriejeanne

Opatija Off The Beaten Path: 15 reviews and 19 photos


It doesn't stay that way! I was looking forward very much to hiking in Croatia and the mountain looked beautiful from a distance.

The hike itself, however, was the worst hike I have ever taken. What may at one time have been a beautiful path through the forest, was no longer. Nouveau riche homes are now scattered along the hillside and the path often disappears altogether. That alone is not the end of the world, but the fact that most of the people living in these new homes have unleashed and vicious guard dogs is!! This was the most dangerous walk I have ever knowingly undertaken!
