February in Opatija is all about love! The month dedicated to those in love will be marked by a romantic atmosphere in the town and numerous programmes devoted to the most sublime emotion, the one at the root of all human longing, hope, delight and happy moments. Love is woven into the very fabric of Opatija, as the town saw numerous great romances among aristocrats and famous guests during its development as a tourist resort. Opatija’s beautiful parks, secluded paths, long coastal promenade and warm starlit evenings provide the perfect setting for special moments with a loved one. It is therefore no surprise that a few years ago, Opatija was declared one of the most romantic towns in Europe and has gained a reputation as a popular destination for weddings.

This February, Opatija’s romantic potential will be further emphasised by special lighting in public spaces, but also by the hundreds of hearts and nice messages with which Opatija Tourist Board has decorated the town’s parks, squares and streets. After the magical Advent atmosphere that delighted visitors from Croatia and abroad, Opatija now has a new message: ‘Feel love’. The town’s decorations will also have a digital expansion on social networks and other communication channels aimed at loyal guests, but also those who will fall in love with Opatija in the future. It is an invitation to meet again in the town as soon as this is possible.

For guests from Croatia and all those who can plan their arrival in the ‘month of love’, Opatija’s hoteliers have prepared fantastic offers throughout February, with a special emphasis on Valentine’s weekend. Exquisite culinary offers in renowned hotel restaurants, specially designed wellness treatments, and luxurious rooms guarantee an unforgettable stay in Opatija!

The romantic atmosphere in Opatija will be further enhanced by a major music event. On Saturday 13 February, the town will host the Dora, which will see the selection of the Croatian act for the Eurovision Song Contest. Needless to say, love songs will predominate! The Dora festival is part of Opatija’s rich tradition of music festivals, which has produced numerous hits that have been enjoyed by generations. It brings together the best of the Croatian music scene, showcasing songs written by top Croatian and foreign songwriters.
