Sitting pretty at the border of Istria and Kvarner regions, Opatija is deemed something of a grand dame of the Croatian tourism. Its allure was much-admired in the 19th century when it was the premier Austro Hungarian winter resort destination. It still comprises all its former Hapsburg charm, full of dainty floral neo gothic residences, views over the islands of Krk and Cres in the foreground and backed by the looking Mount Učka.
With its natural advantages of curative climate and clean unpolluted waters Opatija has always been at the forefront of medical tourism and today it boasts a number of top-class medical establishments that unify comforts of a luxury hotel with cutting edge medical facilities and expert staff who can provide everything from hydrotherapy, physiotherapy and sports massage to advanced cardio tests for top athletes such as the Tinkoff-Saxo team who chose Thalassotherapia Opatija clinic for their specialist medical check-up during the team’s meeting there in October this year.
And for those of us who are more into leisure than sports, Opatija offers plethora of opportunities for fun and relaxation. Whether you’re after barrel hot bath, Kneipp baths, Roman or Finnish sauna or a day-long massages and beauty treatments, Opatija’s hotels have it all and are sure to stay at the forefront of the spa, health and wellness tourism in this part of Europe.
