Once upon a time there was a fairytale town ...

in a mighty empire that reached from the Alps to the beaches of the Adriatic sea.
But do you know for what reasons visitors came to this region in the Kvarner bay? On the one hand, it was the healthy and mild climate between the mountains in the north and the sea in the south and on the second hand the inauguration of the southern rail route from Vienne to Rijeka. For those reasons, the small village Abbazia was declared an official seaside resort during the Austro-Hungarian monarchy.

On these beaches arised one of the loveliest and glamourous seaside and bathing resorts in Europe. Magnificent hotels and gorgeous villas are surrounded by a beautiful nature of the Mediterranean. The Villa Neptun was built as one of the first houses in 1876 and has been renovated in the style of the Belle Epoque to meet the standards of today and to become the heart of the new MIRAMAR. In this way the former imperial spa on the old-Austrian Riviera has started to reawaken from its years as a sleeping beauty and Opatija has become a nearby Wellness destination at the Adriatic Sea.
