March – An Oasis of Wellness in Opatija


March - Wellness oasis in Opatija

Every year in March, Opatija traditionally hosts the Wellness Open Days programme. This year, the programmes were designed to evoke the period when Opatija was a popular meeting place of European high society, aristocracy, artists, and numerous famous personalities who used to come here to enjoy the benefits this area has to offer.

Opatija was declared a health resort as early as 1889 and soon became a popular venue for health tourism due to the favourable combination of the town's seaside location, mild climate, lush vegetation, and mountainous hinterland. Because Opatija was declared a health resort in March, this month was chosen for the Wellness Open Days programme. During this event, Opatija becomes an oasis of wellness where you can try various treatments designed to soothe your body and mind that were inspired by the idea of returning to nature.

Opatija Riviera

Variously known as the ‘Old Dame’, the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ or the ‘Queen of Tourism’, Opatija in Croatia is a remarkable seaside resort town with a long history of tourism stretching back to 1844. Stop for a moment, close your eyes, and you are likely to feel its rich cultural heritage and almost hear the footsteps from the past.

  • Opatija is located in the Kvarner Bay, at the foot of the Mount Ucka and some 15 km from Rijeka, Croatia's third largest city. The centre of the Riviera, Opatija is surrounded by numerous small towns and villages, from Volosko to Lovran, connected by a seafront promenade Lungo mare.
  • When in Opatija, the feel of the 19th century is everywhere and amongst grand hotels with elegant facades you can easily visualise past visitors from Austria’s Hapsburg dynasty, such as the Emperor Franz Joseph, or perhaps famous artists like Isadora Duncan, or a long list of world dignitaries who have over the years chosen this gem of Croatia’s Adriatic coast as their holiday destination.
  • Opatija’s long history as a resort means that wherever you go in the town you will see grand villas surrounded by palm groves and regal century-old hotels lining the steep wooded shoreline, together with gorgeous views of the Kvarner bay and the nearby islands of Krk and Cres.
