The Swiss House Museum
The Swiss House Museum was first mentioned in records from 1875, when its ownership was transferred from Paolo Scarpa into the hands of Count Victor Chorinsky, and it was described as an outbuilding. In 1884, it was the property of the Southern Railway and was expanded and known as the Schweizerhaus or Schwizerhütte with which sometimes accessories as ex Milchstube or ex latteria appeared, nevertheless Croatians called it the Swiss Chalet or the Swiss House. Throughout history, Paolo Scarpa and his wife Maria von Bruck possessed the cottage in which they prepared homemade dairy products, and after decorating, the cottage became a boardinghouse which housed the Musikzimmer, or the music room , in the 20th century. Nowadays, in the Swiss House you can see an exhibition of the history of Opatija.
