... coast. Our hotel and the area meet our expectations and more. Lovely hotel with a garden across the road running down to the beach and broad walk area. There is a 12km coastal broadwalk called the Lungomare running from Volosko to Lovran and we set out on this in search of lunch. Our breakfast had been meagre and it was now 2pm so we were very keen. Stari Grad (Old Town) nearby had a waterfront restaurant that served us an excellent calamari before we staggered off the ...
