Opatija is located in the northern part of the Gulf of Kvarner, just southwest of Rijeka on the Adriatic coast in Croatia. Beautiful nature, protected parks, valuable architectural structures, and seaside promenade are among the main attractions of Opatija.

The sights include:
-- Villa Angiolina. The town's modern history began in 1844, when Iginio Scarpa, a rich merchant from Rijeka, built Villa Angiolina. Today, the villa is the headquarter of Croatian Museum of Tourism.
-- Abbey of Saint James dates back to 1420. In 1506, the church was reconstructed. By the end of the 18th century the church was thoroughly renovated, and in 1930 it was considerably expanded.
-- The Maiden with the seagull, one of symbols of the city, is situated on a promontory. It is a statue by Zvonko Car.
-- The Angiolina park (29904 m²) is located in front of villa Angiolina. It is one of the most beautiful parks in the Adriatic. The southern part of the park contains exotic plants.
-- Lungomare, a 12-km long coastal promenade that stretches from Volosko to Lovran.

Ičići is a popular tourist resort that is located just 4 km southwest of Opatija. It is known for its large marina. The Blue Flag has been waving on the beach of Ičići every year since 2004.
