Great climate, usually a few degrees cooler than Rijeka during the summers. Clean, tidy and well organized, you can enjoy wandering it's tight streets... More

Beautiful town above Rijeka. Gorgeous views wherever you look. Only down side...we had a storm roll in. Otherwise, on a clear day the views would have been even better (if that's possible)

Through the whole city you can find a lot of stands with home specialities, and their local music is being played all the time. I've had a lot of fun,... More

A surprise on our holiday visit. A short taxi ride from Opatija (around 7km, taxis are cheap in Croatia - the trip cost around £7). We went for 2 nights. On the Friday we saw a Slovenian band called Fake Orchestra, producing blues/jazz influenced versions of traditional Slovenian folk songs. On Saturday night we saw a Macedonian blues band called...

Kastav is a charming hilltop town with pretty much everything: Far fewer tourists than neighboring Opatija, great restaurants, spectacular views of Kvarner Bay and cooler air in the hot summer months.

The old town of Kastav is charming and beautiful, with several very good restaurants and a lovely boutique hotel. The view from the top is amazing, as you can see the whole Kvarner bay.
