160 Years of Toursim
Tourism first began in Opatija in 1844 when the leading citizen of Rijeka, a merchant called Higin Scarpa, built the Villa "Angiolina", and named it after his deceased wife. The Villa was soon visited by many of the merchant’s family friends and business partners, along with a number of other distinguished noblemen and noblewomen. Most notably, the Croatian Governor Josip Jelacic spent his holidays here with his wife in 1850. As too did the wife of Emperor Ferdinand I, Empress Mother Mary Ann, spent the entire balmy season here in 1860. Opatija, with its sheltered location, mild climate and green landscapes soon attracted the attention of the Vienna Southern Railway Company, which bought the Villa "Angiolina" from Count Chorinsky in 1882. In 1884, after only ten months of work on the property, the Railway Company opened the "Kvarner", the very first hotel of its kind in the eastern coast of the Adriatic. The event marked the beginning of a very dynamic and active building period in the region.
