RESTAURANT OPAZIJAOPAZIJA EXPERIENCE
Provocative. New. Different. OPazija is the place where the best of traditional Mediterranean and exotic Asian join in one, creating new and memorable culinary experiences.
The cuisine is rooted in the Mediterranean heritage, which emphasizes fresh seasonal food and full-flavoured ingredients. This is where the culinary journey begins. From here we travel to far-off lands, enriching our gourmet sensations with exotic sauces and powerful spices, resulting in provocative dishes.
STAY ACTIVE AND DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF THE OPATIJA RIVIERA AND ITS SURROUNDINGSACTIVITIES
Experience everything that Opatija and its surroundings have to offer: beautiful nature, wonderful scenery and traditional culinary specialities.
Choose the excursion that suits you best – visit the attractive island of Krk or Plitvice Lakes National Park, explore Postojna Cave in Slovenia, or discover rustic Istria.
If you are a fan of hiking and the fresh mountain air, make sure you visit Gorski kotar. And for those of you who like the sea, we recommend a boat trip or a “fish picnic”.
Take a walk along the “Lungomare” – one of the most beautiful promenades on the Adriatic coast. Lungomare connects small towns and villages on the Opatija Riviera – offering 12 km of fresh sea air and countless moments of pure relaxation.
The sea is always fun. If you love water sports, we especially recommend diving at several beautiful locations, from Moscenička Draga to the nearby islands of Krk and Cres. And if you are even more adventurous, parasailing promises boundless excitement along with the chance to enjoy the panoramas of the Opatija Riviera from a whole new perspective.
On this all-day boat trip, you will experience the beauty of Kvarner Bay, discover interesting places on the islands of Krk and Cres, and swim in magnificent island coves. Your hosts on the boat will prepare a welcome drink, lunch with drinks and some refreshing fruit in the afternoon.
An all-day visit to Croatia’s oldest and largest national park, which is protected by UNESCO, is always a memorable experience. Enjoy the beauty of unspoiled nature, including 16 lakes filled with crystal blue-green water interconnected by cascades and waterfalls. The price of the entrance ticket (not included in the excursion price) is 180 kn for adults and 80 kn for children 7-18 years old.
This all-day trip will reveal to you some of the top attractions of neighbouring Slovenia: Postojna Cave – home of the unique olm (a kind of amphibian), and Predjama Castle – built in the mouth of a cave, which was once the residence of Slovenia’s own “Robin Hood”.
After a bus drive to Poreč or Rovinj in Istria, you will embark on a ship which will take you to Venice in 3 hours. The city of lovers, Carnival, canals and gondolas will reveal itself to you with the help of a professional guide who will tell you about its history and show you some of its most famous sites: St. Mark’s Square, the Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri), the Rialto Bridge and much more. The return to Opatija is late in the evening.
The Istrian peninsula delights both with its tourist resorts on the coast and its small medieval towns in the interior. The Pula Arena, the Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, and Motovun, Istria’s most famous medieval town, built on the top of a hill overlooking Motovun Forest, are just some of the places that you will visit on this trip through Istria.
The beauty and diversity of the Kvarner region cannot be fully experienced without visiting Gorski kotar. In summer, this mountainous area offers a refreshing escape along with the peaceful atmosphere of small towns such as Skrad and Fužine, as well as attractive natural wonders such as the spring and waterfall at Zeleni vir and the Vražji prolaz gorge. Furthermore, you can enjoy a carriage ride or boat tour around the lake. A lunch featuring local culinary specialities is included in the price of this excursion.
A tour along the coast (Opatija-Ičići-Ika-Lovran-Mošćenička Draga), including an opportunity to swim in the sea as well as a sightseeing tour of Lovran / Mošćenička Draga. A welcome drink is included in the price.
