We were sad to leave our Kastle accommodations in Motovun, but excited to spend time in Croatia. Opatija is the Monte Carlos of Croatia. I loved walking up and down the boulevard enjoying the view and visiting some of the shops. We had delicious gelato. I also purchased a ring in Opatija, see the souvenirs page for a picture. Opatija is where I initially realized how beautifully clear Croatia’s turquoise waters are.





After visiting Opatija, we journeyed to the Plitvice Lakes National Park where we checked in to our hotel and rested up to explore the park the following day.
