Matulji

Matulji is located nearby Opatija and even though it doesn't have access to the sea it's known as "gates of Kvarner", because of the railway station, built in the middle of the 19th century, bringing foreign tourists on Opatija Riviera. Even today, Matulji is representing "gates" or "entrance" onto Opatija Riviera, because of the fast road in direction of Opatija and because of the two border crossings Rupa and Pasjak. One of the most important dates, especially for the development of Matulji, is 24. June 1873., the day when the first train from Vienna arrived on the station and till today many tourists are using it to come here on holiday.
