We approached from the sea, as we were boated to the church for a wedding, with a short walk from the harbor through beautiful floral gardens. The church is not ornate, more typical of the churches of this region. The area above the altar in...More

A nice church with a serene setting In the middle square. Away from the vibrant streets of Opatijah, it has a nice courtyard to enjoy the serenity.

This church is located right beside the sea. You will first notice it’s stone bell tower as you approach. We were fortunate to visit right after Christmas, and it was still had a couple Christmas trees at the altar and other festive decorations.

This nice cathedral is a 14th century Benedictine abbey and is located in St. James park, near vila Angiolina, which is transformed into museum.

Small church close to the sea. It is very romantic and on the way of Lungomare promenade - you can not miss it. If you pray walk in and pray in peace and at the end light the candle for good wishes.
