Get your fix of nostalgia for the sixties and seventies at RetrOpatija. A unique event that brings Opatija back to a carefree, laidback era, it includes film screenings, retro music and concerts, professional dancers in retro outfits, food and beverage tastes of the past and a classic car line-up.

My favourite part, that you just can’t miss is the all-night ‘Disco Ball’. The main event, The Biggest Disco Party, at Opatija’s open-air theatre.

RetrOpatija is a musical time machine in which swing, rockabilly, rock, jazz and electric disco music merge together to create a fantastic party dedicated to the key decades and musical styles of the twentieth century. This retro festival brings together excellent Croatian and foreign musicians, pin-up models, dancers, jugglers, street musicians, makeup artists and hair stylists, and presents vintage cars and motorcycles, such as Vespas, Tomos and Fiats. Dance at the hot ‘party of the century’ beneath a large disco ball together with thousands of other visitors.

RetrOpatija is a special event that happens every summer in Opatija. It is a unique event that for one day tries to return Opatija in some relaxed and quiet times. The city then abounds with film-makers, retro music and the offerings of specific historical food and drinks.

A walk through the city – from Volosko to Slatina – is a walk through history as the eclectic style of the twentieth decoration and offerings is adapted by Opatija’s cafe’s and restaurants.

If you end up visiting Opatija at the end of June, do not miss this special event and opportunity to experience Croatia in old times and do the boogie all night long!
