The Adriatic coast of the Habsburg Crown Lands of Gorizia and Istria , north and south of Trieste , from the middle of the 19th century to the end of the First World War in 1918, was referred to as the Austrian Riviera in advertising . The name was introduced when tourism emerged along the coast known as the Austrian Coast .

The center of the Austrian Riviera was the city of Trieste. Important seaside resorts were Brioni , Duino , Grado , Portorož and Abbazia , the "pearl of the Austrian Riviera".
