Opatija: Discover the cultural heritage with a City guide
Meeting point: Old Town
Guide Duration: 2:00h
In our guided tour, we will walk around the city and visit the historical and cultural sights. The Opatija Riviera is situated in the Kvarner bay on the eastern coast of the Istrian peninsula. It stretches for 25km along the coastal belt from Volosko to Moscenicka Draga, under the Ucka Mountain. There are eight tourist resorts with numerous restaurants, hotels, villas and parks in this area.The park of the superb Villa Angiolina, built in 1844, contains countless plants brought from different parts of the world. This Villa was once the central entertainment place of the elite and now presents a mouseum of tourism.
The coastal promenade Lungomare, being about 12 km long, was built in stages and stretches from Preluk to Lovran. The Church of Mary’s Annunciation, one neoromantic building, with a green dome and a convent, was built in 1906. The statue "Madonna", by Rathauskog, an author from Graz, was placed at the point until the tempest knocked it over. Today the “Madonna” is set up so that it watches over the soul of count Arthur Kesselstadt, who went missing not far from the point in the waves in 1891. The beauty and unique features of the Villas and Hotels are mesmerizing. The Kvarner Hotel and the Villa Amalia, where European kings and emperors used to reside, are the best-knowned.
