Opatija is the town with the longest tradition of tourism in Croatia. Preparations of Opatija for the rapid development of tourism started in the 19th century. Many hotels, health centers, summer houses and villas were built to accommodate incoming tourists. Villa Angiolina built in 1844 is surely the most representative villa of that time. It is considered to be the first tourist destination in Opatija. Along with villas, beaches, parks and coast, promenades were also built. Opatija Lungomare (sea promenade) has a length of around 12 kilometers and it is considered that walking there has therapeutic healing benefits. By the promenade you can see a sculpture of a girl with a gull on her palm, which is one of the symbols of Opatija. Throughout the years town has transformed to the fashionable summer and winter resort. Today it has a riviera status with many excellent restaurants, wellness and spa centers, luxury hotels and shops.
