Presentation of Lovran

Lovran is a municipality of about 4,500 inhabitants, located just south of Opatija, some 10-15 km from Rijeka along the Istrian coast. Lovran is a health tourist resort with a long tradition, apparently just as old as neighbouring Opatija that started the Adriatic tourism in Austria-Hungary. Opatija and Lovran are connected with a romantic walking way lungo mare (along the coast).
