Opatija - the Imperial Town

20.07.2019. - 20.07.2019. / Opatija


The Lumière brothers, who used to film in Opatija; Isadora Duncan, who danced inspired by the fluttering of palm leaves in the breeze; the Empress Sisi, who officially never visited Opatija, but used to hide here in a villa in the company of a lover – all of them, and many other famous people from the history of this town, come back to life in mid-July during the Imperial Town festival, which combines music and theatre at various locations, transforming Opatija into one big stage for a fantastic spectacle with thousands of visitors. During this event, visitors will have the chance to learn more about Opatija's history and some of its secrets, and to see for themselves why this town has become and has remained a favourite destination for many celebrities, as well as to feel the spirit of the time when Opatija began its rise to the throne of European tourism.
