The end of winter and the first days of early spring with draw out the beautiful camellia blossoms in the Angiolina Park. Visitors will also remember the lush groves of scented laurel and many of the other, 150 or so types of decorative vegetation. At the time they were created, the parks of Opatija were considerably richer in species, in particular, in exotic and vulnerable sup-tropic rarities brought back by seafarers from far away lands. Fortunately enough, even today we can still relish the horticultural diversity of Opatija’s parks.
