The Statue of the Girl with a Seagull

The Statue of the Girl with a Seagull is the symbol of Opatija and Kvarner. You can take a look at this beautiful statue while walking on the promenade. The statue hides an interesting story and the identity of the girl which was unknown for a long time. Everything begins with the count Arthur Kesselstadt who died in 1891 in a spring tempest on the sea near Opatija. Because of it, his family set a Hans Rathauski statue called “Madonna del Mare” on the cliff to watch over his soul. With time, the statue was damaged, and today its replica is held next to St. James’ Church, while the original can be found in Villa Angiolina. After the statue had been moved, in 1956 it was replaced by the statue of the Girl with a Seagull. At first, the bird in the statue had a fish in its beak, but the fish disappeared after some time. The girl was modeled after Jelena Jendrašić, which was unknown for a very long time.
