As a confirmation of success, two years later, in the Vienesse magazine, an article was published speaking specifically about Villa Milenij being a definition of architectural excellence in an effort to maximally adjust to the Opatija Riviera landscape. The final phase of the construction of the hotel is 1924, when, according to the architect’s project documentation, a ballroom (today’s Argonauti restaurant) was added.. The walls of the hall were painted by the Viennese painter Karl Ludwig Hassman with Greek mithology served as his theme.
