We loved the delightful town of Opatija which is situated on the coast of Croatia on the Adriatic Sea. In the 19th century it was a fashionable resort town, and is dotted with Habsburg-era villas. The very attractive Lungomare promenade runs along the coastline, and gives lovely views of the town and neighbouring islands. Small stalls were lined up along the promenade selling souvenirs, ice creams, tours and the like. We saw the beautiful 1800s Villa Angiolina, which is set in a garden of exotic plants, and today houses the Croatian Museum of Tourism. And we made a short stop at the 14th century St. Jacob’s Church which is located near Villa Angiolina. There’s lots to see in this pretty town so if you’re on the Istrian Peninsula, make sure you visit Opatija.

A gentle breeze, the view of the sea. What more do you need? On the way you can enter different parks and museums, as well as stop at a beach, cafe or a restaurant. Franz Josef the 1st was spot on with this idea!

We have visited Opatija 4 times now and please allow for the "no geek" review I am a simple intelligent person with no great factual knowledge, I "feel" a place. We have only walked from about Angiolina gardens for about a mile past the centre of Opatija due to slight mobility issues and the coastal walk (next to the sea) is lovely and relaxing/low key. There are many cafes/restaurants along the way as the centre is just yards away to your right. Clear water/people watching over a tea/coffee,boring to some, is a must to us.

Having stayed for a week, we tried this restaurant. The view is splendid, all the rest is bad. Especially compared with colleagues. The quality is just average industrial food at a high price. Staff is rude. We had twice to convince the waiter and show that we did not have risotto that they wanted to charge us for.
Its a classical tourist trap!

Old and decadent hotels. Food and altogether service still ages away from regular EU standards, so the high prices aren't justified. On top my wife + me had a terrible experience on a beach shop, where we refused to pay 5€ for a plastic bracelet for kids, and they started insulting us -the f.. word was used. Not the first such experience in Croatia, got similar in Dubrovnik; they just want you to leave your tourist money and move on. Another place to avoid

It is very long, we never walked all it’s length, I believe it’s many miles. If u start from opatija central, and face to the see u walk left side u’ll discover several beautiful parks, well attended, small church, the symbol of the town, a beautiful girl face to the sea with a seagull on her arm. On a little bay the bronze of an old fisherman with the right hand open. There is not explanation but most girls take a pic with their back side on it.. so the lonely fisherman becomes some kind of sex maniac...:))keep on walking and at every swing a new wonderful sight wait for u.
Looks like a promenade to paradise, instead u get in a small harbor with some restaurant. Not so far there’s Volosko and u have just to see the old small village.
More I cannot tell u because my feet were tired and asked me to go back...

This waterfront promenade runs for around 11km and passes through the resort town of Opatija. We commenced the walk from the southern end of Opatija near the Villa Ariston. It offers numerous stunning views of the bay and towards the Croatian coastline on the other side. It was beautiful for photography. The walk includes a Croatian Avenue of the Stars. We almost walked all over it before we even knew it was there. Not surprisingly we only knew two of them including Goran Ivanisevic the tennis player, and Rade Serbedzija the actor from movies such as The Saint.
From here we could see the statue of the Maiden with the Seagull. There were various other statues sculptured along the way including a leaning man and another who was balanced mid pose like a ballerina. There was also the church of St Jacob here.
You can also access the Villa Angiolina and its park and continue on north if you wish.

The Lungomare (also called the Emperor Franz Joseph Promenade or „šetalište Franje Josipa I“) is Opatija's best-known walk that stretches 12 km from Volosko to Lovran. Beautiful in every season and charming even if it’s a rainy February day! The footpath is well paved and there are plenty of benches and places to rest, relax and enjoy the splendid views. Alternatively you can stop at one the cafés or bars along the walk.
You will pass nice parks and some magnificent villas (some lovingly renovated, others in a sad state of disrepair) as well as some grand fin de siècle hotels, a number of tastefully designed modern buildings and unfortunately several hideous architectural faux pas.
Street musicians often provide entertainment. Acoustic, unplugged, performances can be enjoyable. Those with amplifiers tend to be a disturbance but for some reason they are tolerated by the authorities.
During the high season the footpath becomes crowded and, like all tourist hot-spots, unpleasant. The other interesting path in Opatija is the forest path of Carmen Sylva (Šetalište Carmen Sylve), which is not so overrun.

We stayed in Opatija and walked both ways to Volosko and to Lovran , both had their own style and flair and I loved the wonderfull old Vilas and hotels , sometimes derilict , some being renovated. What impressed me the most was the fact how old this path is , being built around 1900 and it is still intact and that you always walk directly next to the sea.
Also that it is lit at night with street lights every few meters, so you always feel safe !
We worth the visit.
My recommendation - walk from Opatija to Lovran - 2-3 hours easy walking stop when ever you want. Then go to the Fish Restaurant "Najade" for some great food , situated directly on the sea. and finally catch the bus back to Opatija, leaves every 45 mins outside the bakery in centre of Lovran !

Great walk with an awesome view. And because of trees, there is a good mixture of sun and shadow (especially in summer). The ocean, the villas you pass by, everything is so beautiful! By chance I saw a sign of the "Grill House" restaurant, just before leaving Opatija towards Icici. You have to walk upstairs and you see it. Great place to have lunch, a very tasty fish and great prices (2 main fish dishes, 2 drinks and 2 entrance dishes c.a. 30€!). Walk towards Opatija and get an icecream. I recommend the "Arequipe" flavor, which you find here as "dolce latte".
