Angiolina Villa & Museum
The Angiolina Villa was very important for the beginning of the tourist era in Opatija. It was reconstructed in 1844 from an older building owned by baron Haller von Hallerstein. At that time, Opatija was a large village of 120 houses which were far from the seashore. Iginio Scarpa erected a mansion which he named after his late wife Angiolina. Thus Opatija became a destination for many travelers, some of whom were Ban Josip Jelačić and the Austrian empress Maria Ana. Because of its climate and vegetation, which all visitors find delightful, a health resort was to be built in Opatija. In Scarpa’s time, Villa Angiolina was a place of summer fun, in the Austrian era it was the residence of the Health Resort Commission, and today it houses the Croatian Museum of Tourism.
