Konavle region is a rural region south-east of Dubrovnik with Cavtat as its municipality center. It is southern most part of Croatia. It is a small region with a distinct character: its rocky coast on the South, its scrub covered mountain to the North and its green valley in between.
Opatija is a seaside resort town on the east coast of Istria. Back in the 19th century, Opatija has been a fashionable holiday resort for the international upper class. Today it is definitely not the holiday destination it used to be. In my opinion it is definitely not worth visiting in summer.
