Well, the seaside is nice, with many places to sit by the water, and to dive, but for those used to long sandy beaches as we have in Portugal, this could hardly be called "a beach".
It was my first contact with this side of the Adriatic coast. With time I understood that this is a common solution, so, I would like to get back to Opatija to compara with the other "beaches" that I could see.
There's a look of cleanliness and preservation in the whole town, that invites you to compare the architectural influences of its most beautiful buildings.
There's no sign of war, there's no sign of difficulties, it seems that locals love their town.
Yes, I know, we didn't leave the centre! But that was the dominant feeling we could have!
