This impressive building was the first hotel built in Opatija back in 1884. It is the greatest pearl in the string of Opatija hotels. Although it is the oldest hotel on the eastern coast of the Adriatic, time hasn’t harmed it at all. In its beginnings, it was a luxurious meeting place for the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy and even today it is the most beautiful symbol of Opatija.
The spirit of the monarchy is felt in the largest ballroom called the Crystal Hall, bathed with the shining splendour of glittering crystal chandeliers and mirrors. It is filled with elegance and gorgeous beauty. More than a century ago, imperial and royal dignitaries and gentlemen from all over Europe led their ladies in ball gowns to the dancing floor.
Wedding dinners are especially festive in it. The ballroom can accommodate up to 300 guests, but can be reduced to 150 or up to 60 guests.
Even today, the romantic spirit permeates every corner and hides its story. You are invited to experience yours, too. Thus, is there anything more beautiful than starting your first steps together in this beautiful hall under the crystal chandeliers?
You will be attracted to the outdoor terrace on which famous Ivo Robić sang and performed for years and on which even now you can hear his velvety voice whispering “Oh, hear, that serenade, you fabulous Opatija…”
The terrace is beautiful, located along the promenade, close to the sea and it is suitable for a wedding ceremony, a welcome drink, and for the wedding dinner, too.
Cutting the cake ceremony right on the terrace as well as a magnificent fireworks above the sea is an unforgettable experience for your guests.
