The Kvarner Riviera
is located next to Istria (in coastal terms) and is centred on the city of Rijeka, which is the busiest port on the Adriatic. The most famous
resort in this area is Opatija, with Lovran, Crikvenica, Kraljevica
and Novi Vinodolski also popular.
The Kvarner Riviera has a long association with tourism with some resorts - especially Opatija and Crikvenica - emerging as popular holiday places in the late 19th century. Opatija in particular was an upmarket resort visited by many well-to-do holidaymakers - including various European royal family members - and is still considered something of an upmarket resort today, as evidenced by the several five-star hotels it is home to.
