Crikvenica is a beautiful town in the region Kvarner Bay, 37 km southeast of Rijeka. It is located in the vicinity of the confluence point of the Dubracina brook, whose valley connects the town with the interior part of Vinodol. Sand deposits form the Crikvenica beach. The town was named after the church (crkva, crikva) of a Pauline monastery, erected by Nikola Frankopan in 1412 at the confluence point of the Dubracina into the sea. It has very favourable climatic conditions; an average annual air temperature is 13,2 °C (55,8 °F), in January 5,4 °C (41,7 °F) and in July 23,3 °C (74 °F). Economy is based on farming, vegetable growing, livestock breeding, fishing and especially tourism. Long sand and pebble beaches, decorated bathing on the open sea and deserted coves, for those which crave for peace and solitude, are perfect for bathing in the sun and swimming. The clean water with the highest quality breng Crikvenica a European appreciation for the purity of the sea, the "Blue Flag". The proximity of the airport on the island of Krk and the good road connections with Central Europe were an important precondition for the early development of tourism, based on the territory of the present Crikvenica Riviera with more than a hundred-year tradition.

Foreigners got interested in Crikvenica as early as 1890, when they started to visit the town on their excursions from Opatija. In 1891 the first hotel was opened, owned by Ivan Skomerza. The owner named the hotel Erzherzogin Clotilde. In the same year, Archduke Joseph bought the Pauline monastery and turned it into a military seaside resort and then into a children's summer resort; today it is a hotel. The rapid tourist development initiated the construction of a public beach and the arrangement of a public park (1891). The foundation-stone laying ceremony was also attended by the Croatian viceroy Khuen Hedervary. The magnificent Hotel Therapia, which still ranks among one of the most beautiful hotel buildings on the entire Croatian coast, was built in 1895 and in accordance with the concepts of those times served as a health resort. In 1906 Crikvenica was officially recognized as a sanatorium.
