After visiting Opatija in 1926, a merchant who made a fortune selling Hungarian peppers decided to buy land and build a terraced garden with a monumental entrance and a colonnade of fifteen pillars and fifteen cypresses to delight in the view from the park. “We are obliged to take care of the rich park heritage we have, but also to revitalize it and convert it for tourist purposes so that everyone can enjoy the beauty of the landscape. That is why we started arranging this area, for which in the first phase we provided about two million kuna with the funds of the Ministry of Tourism and the city budget and another 600 kuna for the construction of a pedestrian bridge in accordance with the requirements of the conservator.”, Said the mayor of Opatija, Ivo Dujmić.
