Opatija Riviera
Lovranska Draga

On a steep mountain ridge, high above the sea, lies Lovranska Draga, a quaint village that can be reached from Medveja or Lovran on the coast along interesting hiking trails that lead through wonderful natural scenery. Situated between the blue skies and blue sea, Lovranska Draga offers magnificent views of Mount Učka's highest peak and the entire Kvarner Bay, which stretches out below you. This village, traditionally dedicated to agriculture, is distinguished by its quaint vineyards that receive water from a local stream. The tradition of using exclusively local ingredients in preparing food has resulted in fantastic specialities that can be savoured only here and nowhere else in the world. The trails that lead to Lovranska Draga from the coast continue from here towards the mountain. The most famous among them is the Slap educational trail, which leads to Učka's most beautiful waterfall through an ancient sweet chestnut forest. Visitors can learn more about this endemic species through a series of interpretation boards.
