Discover the beautiful hinterland of the Opatija Riviera

Hiking is also very popular in the local area, both as a recreational activity and among those of a more adventurous spirit. A climb to Mount Učka and its highest peak Vojak (1,401 metres above sea level) continues to attract more and more hikers and wanderers. The Risnjak National Park in Gorski kotar lies at only 15 km as the crow flies from the sea and can be reached by car in just an hour from Opatija. This area is excellent for hiking or mountain biking. Gorski kotar is a perfect place for all lovers of activity-packed holidays: the rivers of Kupa and Dobra are ideal for kayaking and rafting. A popular activity for families with children is a stroll around Lake Bajer in Fuzine; here you can also discover the local cuisine (Lokve is well-known for its frog specialities). Ravna Gora offers great biking paths, and hikers can visit Mount Bjelolasica with the highest peak at 1,534 metres above sea level. If you are interested in learning more about the local history, we recommend visiting Zrinski Castle in Brod na Kupi. Gorski kotar also offers several caves and other interesting karst phenomena; here you can also encounter animals in their natural surroundings in Milanov vrh, Trsce, Plesce and Mali Lug.

The sea if also fun!

Those who love water sports, primarily diving, will be glad to hear that this region offers several interesting dive sites from Moscenicka Draga to the nearby islands.

The islands of Krk and Cres are also well worth visiting. They can be reached from Opatija by car in just an hour (via Krk bridge or by ferry), and you can also visit them by boat. Krk is the largest island of the Adriatic that boasts an eventful history. There you can admire the remains of Roman thermal baths, small old Croatian churches, Glagolitic monuments and the artworks of Venetian master painters. The island of Cres enchants with its unspoilt nature, excellent gastronomy and numerous hidden bathing coves.
