Opatija – A one hundred year old walkway

Opatija – A one hundred year old walkway
A 12 km long coastal walkway which connects the places Volosko, Opatija, Ičići, Ika and Lovran on Opatija Riviera, celebrates its one hundredth birthday this year. The construction of Opatija`s coastal promenade (‘Lungomare’) began at the time of the opening of Opatija`s first hotels, Kvarner in 1884 and Imperial in 1885. Works on the walkway officially began in 1885 and ended in 1889, when Opatija was proclaimed a climate health resort. The walkway was later extended all the way to Lovran, and was officially opened in 1911. In the past one hundred years a large number of tourists have walked along this path, a symbol of this famous tourist resort and the Opatija Riviera.

Anyone who visits Opatija, will not miss the chance to walk along this monumental path along the seafront. It can be visited at any time of the year and offers a chance for recreation, with a unique view of the sea and the beautiful Kvarner bay, but at the same time therapy by the sea air and particles of sea water, which are created by breaking of the waves onto the rocks.

Beautiful in its own way at any time of the year, it offers a stunning views of Opatija`s parks, hotels - including the hotels of the same age, Kvarner and Imperial - the mountain Učka and other sites of this area. A short rest on one of the benches, a glance towards the sea or a stop for a coffee, ice-cream or a tasty meal on a terrace on the waterfront, are images which cannot be easily forgotten. The one hundred year old walkway is one of the most beautiful symbols of Opatija.
