St. James’ Park
In the period from 1845 to 1860 the most beautiful parks of Opatija were made – the Angiolina Park and the St. James’ Park. Friedrich Julius Schüler was assigned to build these beautiful parks, the Lungomare promenade and a variety of villas. Some parts of the park were modeled according to French parks with floral surfaces that vary according to the seasons, as well as the English parks featuring curved paths. The park is divided into 60 fields, with the northern and southern part of the park. The northern part of the park is among the most beautiful parks in the country, most notable for its dense laurel. In the southern part of the park you can enter the sea, from Slatina or the main road. It occupies the area from the Hotel Astoria to the part made up of greenhouses and nurseries. This beautiful park is even more adorned by plants of around 150 species. A lot of plants have been brought from different parts of the world, such as Australia, the Far East and South America. The most notable plant in the park is the Japanese Camellia is the famous symbol of Opatija.
