Cruises from Opatija
Opatija - aka Sankt Jakobi, Abbazia - is a tranquil resort in western Croatia, just southwest of Rijeka in the Gulf of Kvarner on the Adriatic coast. Surrounded by beautiful forests of bay laurel, together with its mild climate and stunning setting, it is a popular summer and winter resort. The whole sea coast to the north and south is rocky and picturesque, and contains several smaller winter resorts. The city's most prestigious sights are: the Villa Angiolina that was built in 1844, many late 19th-century luxury hotels and villas that have survived to present times, as well as the remains of medieval walls and the town gate.
