It is situated above the Franz Joseph II. path, with the beautiful view of Kvarner bay and islands of Adriatic sea, near Opatija ‘s town center.

Opatija, known as “The Old Lady”, was established during Austro – Hungarian rule and became the first touristic resort and symbol of tourism development in Croatia.

It’s charming architecture dates from the end of 19 the century and is well incorporated in the natural scenery of the bottom of slopes of Učka mountain. In Opatija, you can take a walk at famous paths that lead toward slopes of Učka, or by the sea. You can also rest on the bench of several parks or terrace of numerous facilities by the sea and enjoy yourself in beautiful views all around as once James Joyce did. On the other hand, you can choose to participate in numerous different events that are organized during the year. And definitely, you should try some of the tasty autohtone dish in one of Opatija ‘s restaurants.

The Congress is a unique opportunity to learn and to share innovative and best practice, ideas and experiences with colleagues from all over the world. Wherever you work, take this opportunity to break away from your daily routine, in order to discover new approaches and to get acquainted with the lessons learned. But most of all to network and to return home with new knowledge, insight, ideas and newly motivated to your work and colleagues.
