Opatija – A historical walking path
Opatija, the old lady of Croatian tourism is a well known tourist destination, which was used by the Austro-Hungarian elite as an ideal holiday destination. But what is not so well known is that the Opatija hinterland has a lot to offer too. In order to revitalize the hinteland of Opatija, a historical path that leads from the centre of Opatija to the old core Veprinac has been opened. The walking path has been widened, tiled, the old stone parts fixed, new direction boards have been put up as well as benches for resting and educational boards in four languages that explain the history and the trail towards Veprinac. This is a trail that has been used in the past by the locals on a daily basis, by which they would reach the shore where they would trade their products. Today, it serves for a pleasant walk, an escape from the city bustle and enjoyment of untouched nature.

The renewal of the path to Veprinac is part of a project that aims to constuct a net of trails on the slopes of Učka, which connect a number of native settlements as well as pass through beautiful natural landmarks. In this way tourists, visitors and mountaineers can get to know all of the features of the Opatija riviera hinterland.
