Grand Hotel Adriatic
Four decades of convention tradition

The 40-year-long tradition of hosting congresses makes Opatija's Grand Hotel Adriatic a leader on the Adriatic coast in this tourism sector. Next year, 2011, will be dedicated to this important anniversary.

In 2011, Opatija's Grand Hotel Adriatic will celebrate its 40th anniversary as a congress venue, which is the longest tradition of hosting conventions on the Croatian Adriatic. This anniversary is the result of thousands of congresses and other conventions with hundreds of thousands of participants and the overall popularity of this hotel, where business people like to return even after their business obligations are over to enjoy a pleasant holiday, wellness services and superb gastronomy. Every year, the Grand Hotel Adriatic hosts 200 congresses and other meetings. The organisers have at their disposal a large congress hall for 550 participants and seven smaller conference rooms. Despite the fact that Opatija now offers several convention facilities, which makes this town one of Croatia's most recognisable convention centres, the Grand Hotel Adriatic remains synonymous of the local congress tradition. In addition to conventions, this hotel is also renowned for its high-quality accommodation, wellness facilities, excellent food, and the overall quality of services.
