Opatija, Croatia’s famous coastal resort, this year once again offers unique festive decorations and experiences to remember. In addition to the town’s enchanting atmosphere, visitors can look forward to many surprises...

This winter, Opatija will again welcome visitors with its special Advent mood. The most romantic and festive season is the best time to get to know this famous European destination in a unique atmosphere. It’s a time when holiday magic can be felt in every corner of the town, making each experience an unforgettable one.

Hundreds of thousands of lights and beautiful decorations during Advent turn Opatija into a stage for a winter fairy tale. In addition to the virtual walk, which aroused great interest last year, this year’s Advent will offer the real thing and the opportunity to enjoy the town’s varied culinary and entertainment offer.

From 26 November to 9 January, the ‘Most Beautiful Advent by the Sea’ will bring festive cheer to the town’s famous locations, such as the Park of St James, Angiolina Park, Slatina Beach, Lungomare, the Open Air Theatre, the town market and the picturesque neighbouring fishing village of Volosko, offering a number of exciting surprises for all visitors. Thanks to the Advent programme, but also the town’s excellent restaurants, modern wellness & spa centres, the Chocolate Festival at the beginning of December, and its tradition of tourism that extends back almost two centuries, Opatija is again this winter the ideal destination for a perfect holiday.

 

Luxuriously decorated streets and squares, an ice skating rink, and various musical and theatrical performances at numerous magnificent locations are just a small part of the enchanting Advent in Opatija programme. The sound of Christmas carols can be heard all around, and the delightful scents of mulled wine and hot chocolate guarantee a truly memorable experience for all visitors. A festive atmosphere, mild winter climate and the closeness of the sea together make the perfect recipe for the Advent of your dreams.

Experience the most beautiful Advent by the sea in a fairy-tale atmosphere. Visit Opatija, take a walk through the beautifully decorated town, and spend Christmas holidays to remember!
