It's quite steap to go from the beach to this church. But very much worth it. It's very sober, which we like. Happy we did the effort to walk to it (we are not very mobile)

Main church of Opatija grandiose outside but very modest inside. Nevertheless worth visiting. The view from the hill is spectacular.

The church is impresive, positioned on the hill above promenade and Slatina beach. It is demanding to climb the number of stairs to reach the church entrance but it is must see place.
