What a beautiful city!

Located on the Adriatic Sea, Opatija is a resort town that was once a favorite of the nobility of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Its stately building retains the style of yesteryear including public gardens that adorn much of the city.

Its bars have extensive galleries and terraces overlooking the sea that makes the stay even more enjoyable. Many were the favorite online slots of artists, philosophers and writers such as A. Chechov, James Joyce, Gustav Mahler, Isadora Duncan and Giacomo Puccini to name any of them. Also in lobbies of hotels and businesses it is common to find great art.

In its avenues one can find many local designers shops. The people here are very refined and women are incredibly beautiful.
