Things to do
Take a day trip to nearby islands, where you can explore cute island villages and swim, snorkel or sunbathe at the gorgeous beaches. Go hiking up the Učka mountain range for a magnificent view, and the chance to see rare birds like the griffon vulture and the golden eagle. Visit Opatija’s beautifully manicured parks, Park Angiolina, Park of Sv Jakob and Park Margarita, all full of exotic plants and species from around the world. In Park Sv Jakob, you can also see the Maiden with the Seagull sculpture, which has become a symbol for Opatija.
