Full Steam Ahead to the Austro-Hungarian Riviera

Mit Volldampf an die K.u.K.-Riviera

Even towards the end of the 19th century, aristocrats and the prosperous upper middle class traveled to the Austrian Riviera to spend their vacations in the fashionable seaside resorts of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In luxury train compartments, the posh travelers flooded to the sea and enjoyed themselves in the idyllic seaside resorts. The Quarnaro, or Kvarner, as the Croats call their Adriatic coast today, was synonymous with the term "Austrian Riviera." Particularly Abbazia (today Opatija) vouched for exclusivity and elegance. Whoever could afford it at all went to the Adriatic Sea once a year. With the progress of railroad construction, particularly Abbazia experienced an unprecedented construction and tourism boom, quickly morphing into one of the most attractive seaside resorts of Europe in the mid-19th century. Full Steam Ahead to the Austro-Hungarian Riviera tells of the journey of the affluent society to the Austrian Riviera in the 19th century.
