More small ships docked by the small harbour in Volosko...My last photo in Volosko when slowly, I would creep into Opatija !Just to end the story, I spent a few hours in Opatija, took some photos...Then, took a bus back to Camping Preluk; Collected my luggage & caught a bus back to Opatija again !Waited for some hours 'cos the bus to my next...more
Continued walking & moved to another bench, catching the sights around me.I noticed that there are people, mostly old folks...just lying on the pebble-sand beach (artificial beach ?) by the embankment/promenade...Couldn't care less about me being there watching their activities; I wanted to join me but it was too cold for me !...more
Finally I reached Volosko by walking from the Camping Preluk ! Very quiet...Some people were just woke up & getting ready for the day.I took a photo of this sight where I could see old & new buildings lie next to one another...but the sea beckoning me more !Let's take a look there !more
Opatija was getting nearer ! It was a great feeling walking by the road, by the sea...seeing these wonderful Croatian/Kvarner morning scenes...I could take many photos but I didn't, but the memories always always linger in my head up to this day !I wanted to see Opatija during the day...Maybe Ivan loves the nightlife but I love the daylight !...more
Le Mandrac is a modern seafood restaurant that sits at the waters edge in this picturesque harbour. We were so impressed we went back a second time during our 7 day visit. They have a great selection of fine wines and serve a good variety dishes as well as fish. This place is food heaven and we recommend it highly.
Favorite Dish: All the dishes we had were excellent and they insist on using the freshest of ingredients.
...Definitely you would want to reach Opatija.
My advise is walking along Volosko embankment...until you reach Opatija.
You can arrive in Opatija...the so-called 'The Playground For The Rich...' ; by bike, by car, by bus....
Lucky me that I could find a woman walking along the promenade at that early hours of the day.
She couldn't speak good English, she's German.
Asked her to take a photo of me, just for the memory being in Volosko !...
