Zagreb - Opatija

A leisurely start to our day sees us drive south towards the Kvarner Gulf and the seaside promenades of Opatija.

Sit back and watch the meadows, forests and farmlands roll past - a lush countryside dotted with terracotta-roofed villages and castles as you journey to Croatia's exquisite Istrian Peninsula. Views of beautiful parks and elegant villas greet you as you arrive, a testament to Opatija's Austro-Hungarian heritage.
