Pula Airport – Opatija

Submitted by | 2,923 views

Opatija is an Istrian city situated at the foot of the mountain Učka. It developed around the Benedictine abbey of St. Jacob. Today it is a famous tourist place specialized in congress tourism. A good way of arranging transfer from Pula airport to the city of Opatija is to book a private transfer in advance. Here you will find a few guidelines which might be helpful.

There are 3 routes from the Pula Airport to Opatija and no matter which company you choose for your transfer, the driver should know which route is most suitable on the day of your transfer.

Route 1: This route comprises the so called Istrian Y road. This is the best road to take because it has recently been reconstructed into a four-lane road. By taking this route which is 99 km long, it will take you about 1 hour and 26 minutes to get to Opatija.


Route 2: One part of this route is coastal. It appears to be shorter than the previous one mentioned (82 km in length and 1 hour and 14 minutes in time), but this is not the case due to the heavy traffic caused by trucks. Besides this, the road is also bumpy so it is recommendable to avoid it.

Route 3: This route is similar to the second one. The only difference is that it goes through the continent all the way. It is 91 km long and it would take you 1 hour and 24 to Opatija.

Although it takes approximately the same time to get to Opatija by taking any of the three routes, the first one is definitely the best due to its recent reconstruction. Also, what is common to the first and the second route is that you have to pass through the Učka tunnel.
