˝Balinjerada˝ in Opatija is a spectacle which has become a widely known brand, taking place this year during the summer season. This time, the city of Opatija, provided a special setting for a race that was held during the evening hours on a lighted race track, with a set of video screens where the audience could follow the entire race. The track is already well known, from Hotel Bristol to Slatina, and the opportunity to ride on the track was exciting for guests from around the world.
All participants competed, but unlike the winter Balinjerada, were only judged on their artistic impression, not on speed. The best received the rewards and prizes that were provided by numerous sponsors and donors.
Hotel Bristol prepared a special menu under the name ˝Food on wheels˝ in which we offered mini burgers, sauced ribs, fruit skewers and much more. This was also a great opportunity to promote our new lounge bar concept that opened on the terrace of Hotel Bristol. Our guests enjoyed some of the best cocktails and food combinations in Opatija featuring aromatic nargila scents, while enjoying the performance of the drivers, some experienced, some less experienced.˝Balinjerada˝ was all about fun, speed, good food and unforgettable moments.
RetrOpatija was a great opportunity for all those who yearn for the magical days of the past in Opatija. An event that brought back the feeling of times when the pace of life was slower, we took much more time to do most everything and we took pleasure in the small things. During the event, Opatija was abundantly filled with retro music, food specialties and dancers dressed in the typical clothes of that period.
Hotel Bristol decided to go back to the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, whose monarch at its inception in 1867 was Franz Josef. We have brought the lifestyle and fashions of Queen Elizabeth’s time back to life with crinolines, bustles, polonaises, dolmans, abundant frills and furbelow’s of every description. Our main attraction was a carriage from the year 1910, a selfie point where our lovely lady guests, at least for a moment, could slip into a silhouette that is soft and feminine. Even with our taste buds, we stepped back in time with our head Chef Dejan and his lavish food selection including grilled sausages, wiener schnitzel and Kaiserschmarrn pancakes. We were delighted to offer our guests some fantastic food creations, to offer them something new and to create a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for them to relax and enjoy. We also offered a wide range of some of the best cocktails and food combinations in Opatija such as grilled pork ribs, amazing meat stew with dumplings, which was to die for, Sacher mignon, sweet Mozartkugel pralines and apple strudel with vanilla. It is important to mention that all meals were prepared right on the spot especially the desserts, which were made by the magical hands of our pastry chef. We are looking forward for to the next RetrOpatija event and for our guests to enjoy even more, since it was such a huge success, especially for our Hotel Bristol.
Oh, those were the days…
