After travelling to Zagreb to see all the Christmas lights and decorations for the past few years (where, except for last year when we weren’t even allowed to leave our own home town), I wanted to see something else. And what is better than Christmas decorations by the sea? So Opatija it was. Advent in Opatija. A good hour and a half from our capital city, Opatija is convenient also for the less traffic at the border crossings.
