In total there are nine airports in Croatia, of which six are international airports:
Rijeka is closest to Opatija with a distance of about 45km.
Many tourists also travel by car to Croatia, as one is flexible on the spot and can visit many beaches, secluded coves, the beautiful island and many other places.
If you want to travel to one of the numerous islands, there are regular ferry services available for transport.
We recommend the following arrival route for the Kvarner Bay region:
Nuremberg – Munich – Salzburg – Tauern Tunnel – Spittal – Karawankentunnel – Kranj – Ljubljana – Postojna – Highway to Rupa (border) – Rijeka – Coastal Road to the resort.
It is important that you often take a little break on the long drive, stretch properly and move a bit. So plan on spending enough time. Especially those who travel with children have to take breaks.
What to do in Opatija
Opatija really offers something for every taste. For one thing, there are many beautiful sights such as:
The waterfront – Opatija is, as already mentioned, a famous seaside resort and thus, of course, has a beautiful and romantic waterfront. It stretches for 12 km and you can go for a walk while admiring the beautiful Kvarner Bay and the Adriatic Sea.
Bath villas – A real eye-catcher are of course also the magnificent bath villas during the city stroll. Villa Angiolina and Villa Amalia are the most impressive examples.
The girl with seagull – This statue is the symbol of the city. The romantic statue “Girl with Seagull" is located on one of the adjacent hills. If you go there, you can not only admire the girl with the seagull, but at the same time admire a spectacular view of the Adriatic Sea and Opatija.
In addition, there are a number of old, historic churches in Opatija, such as the St. Jacob’s Church. In this one can, for example, admire the famous Madonna statue “Madonna del Mare".
Opatija has several city beaches, which are mostly narrow and made of stone. However, the Croats have become creative in this respect and have made the disadvantage to be an advantage, for example by building a wooden terrace on the Lido beach, from which you can get directly into the clear blue waters of the Adriatic via ladders. The feeling of being at a pool is further enhanced by the numerous beach chairs and even a pool embedded in the terrace.
The atmosphere in Opatija is idyllic and contemplative. Huge hotel castles and newly built facilities can hardly be found here, which is why the character of the seaside resort has been well preserved. Accordingly, there are party, action and shopping rather less on the program, but rather beautiful walks, good food, lots of nature and local culture.
