Opatija in Croatia.

Here’s a feature that I’ve written about the attractive seaside resort of Opatija in Croatia.

Opatija – widely known as Abbazia and Sankt Jakobi in bygone days – was the first official Austro-Hungarian ‘climatic health resort’ on the Adriatic. Wellness treatments still draw a significant number of visitors to the town overlooking Kvarner Bay.

I visited in June while I was in Croatia for the Zagreb Tourfilm Festival.

Find out more about the resort on Opatija’s tourist board’s website.

My feature is entitled Opatija: Croatia’s Venerable Seaside Resort.
