Good question Wicky. Both developed around the same time. I'm not too sure which of the 2 kicked off first, but as far as I know Opatija was always the most popular. Opatija was the biggest and best with the classy hotels and villas therefore my guess is that it was Opatija that started tourism in the Adriatic over a century ago. In regards to Crikvenica, I passed thru it a few times and it was nice as well. We'll probably post images on Crikvenica too.

Opatija is the better known resort. European royalty frequented it. Crikvenica on the other side of Rijeka is not too bad, but I like Opatija better. This is Crikvenica:
