The Church of Mary’s Annunciation
One of the most beautiful parts of Opatija is certainly the Church of Mary’s Annunciation which adorns the city with its outer beauty and size. Among the locals, the church is known as the “Great Church” and “German Church”. The construction of the church began in 1906 according to the designs by Carl Seidl, while the stepping stone was laid by the bishop of Trieste, Franjo Nagl. The church has three naves built in a neo-romanic style and constructed of Kastav stone, while granite and brick were used for the building of the interior of the church. In the depths of the church is an altar with ciborium, above which a large dome is raised. Also, in the church there is the altar of Our Lady of Trsat next to which is the Lourdes cave. Next to the church is a Jesuit monastery.
