remisensOpatija, 13 km to the west of Rijeka is situated in the Kvarner bay in a sheltered position at the foot of the mountain Učka. It had been a small, remote fishermen's village until the middle of the 19th century. Opatija (in German and Italian Abbazia) got its name after the Benedictine abbey situated in the center of Opatija.

The town's modern history began in the middle of the 19th century, when Villa Angiolina was built. At that time many celebrities from metropolises of Zagreb, Vienna, and Budapest came to spend time at “Angiolina“ and in Opatija. Opatija became a fashionable destination for the Austrian imperial family and Austrian nobility. Soon the luxury hotels and grand belle époque residences and villas were built. The first luxury hotel – Hotel "Quarnero" (today "Grand Hotel Kvarner") was built in 1884. The hotel Kronprinzessin Stephanie was opened in 1885. Opatija's first guide was published in Vienna in 1883 with the title Abbazia, Idylle von der Adria.
