Apart from the road, Opatija is connected to Lovran, Ičići and Ika by a 12-kilometer-long coastal promenade that ends in Volosko and on which memorials have been erected to famous people who stayed in Opatija. Its construction began in the second half of the 19th century, when the first hotels were opened here. Well-kept parks are one of the trademarks of Opatija. The distance of approximately 500 kilometers from Milan, Vienna and Munich makes it the center of the Riviera, with the longest tradition in Croatian tourism, the closest exit to the warm sea for visitors from Central Europe.
