Park of Queen Jelena

The garden of queen Jelena was the first public city park, opened at the time when Zadar was still a city-fortress. Since walking out of the city was impossible after the sunset, this place has become the city’s balcony with a sea view and Mediterranean atmosphere. The park was opened in 1829 by the governor of the city, baron Franz Ludwig von Welden, who also happened to be a passionate botanist. The view was owed completely to its location and position on one of the city’s bastions, which were actually military fortress. Park had cafes where one could drink coffee, a novelty at the time, made of ‘Arab lentil’ or eat a sorbet, fruit ice cream made with ice. The city park also became the open-air stage where people performed plays and played music, a museum with exposed statues and busts, but also a place to socialize sitting on benches arranged in semicircles made of pillars. Despite the numerous activities and water access, the park was replaced with a city square that now had a lighting and a new waterfront. All the damage it suffered in World War II and its 200 years long existence did not destroy the most beautiful park in Zadar.
