Estimated value of the project: the investment will be assessed after the development of design documents

Location: City of Opatija – Ownership: state property, maritime domain

Significance of the project

Slatina, a historical bathing establishment is an entity in the heart of the City of Opatija that has not been consolidated in terms of physical properties and intended use and it requires a new design to become a new Opatija Waterfront – a new place of encounter and a new centre of Opatija; it will also influence the further development of Opatija’s tourism, Kvarner and wider area destinations.

The project involves the following construction activities

New facilities will complement, improve and highlight Slatina’s natural physical features and new construction work will be done in stages beside the existing bathing establishment. The planned extension with physical features and facilities added to the existing bathing site will be flagged with a combination of stone, wood, natural materials and natural organic forms. The space will be of a polyvalent character for all days and seasons: with new lines of trees, parallel promenades, groups of shrubs and trees, focal points for public events, squares, micro and macro zones of the bathing place, for events and encounters. The final zone on one side of the bathing place, the so-called “Pančera”, will be additionally highlighted at its unique natural position and its facilities will be adapted.
