– is a renowned tourist resort next to Crikvenica, located on the
northern Adriatic coast, 35 km south of Rijeka.
In the past Dramalj was mentioned already at the beginning of the
XVIIIth century, only to change its’ name soon afterwards to Sveta
Jelena , after the church bearing the same name which was built in
1813. After 1945. the town was renamed again to Dramalj.
As a tourist resort Dramalj started to develop at the end of the
XIXth century, simultaneously with the development of tourism in
neighbouring Crikvenica, with the construction of many villas and
the hotel “Danica”.
The mild Medditerranean climate, rink vegetation and the crystal-clear
seawater are more than attractive.

and coves for sunning and bathing.

or apartments and an autocamp.
