Opatija, or as it was known in history, Abbazia is an iconic resort town of Croatia's Adriatic coast. Following the erection of the first villa in the area, Villa Angiolina in the mid-19th century, the building up of villas really started in the 1880s - the decade also marks the period when the first hotels (Grand Hotel Kvarner) and sanatoriums opened their doors. Abbazia - Opatija became Austria-Hungary's most popular resort on the Adriatic.

Several elements of Opatija's luxury and grandeur from the K.u.K. times have been preserved: multi-starred hotels, villas, casinos, quite a few restaurants and cafes from Croatia's premier league. Opatija still misses some of the appeals for a 21st century vacation - one of them is the lack of an attractive and modern beach.
