Queen Helen's Park


The first public city park, created when Zadar was a fortress. Since Zadar was closed behind its walls at night due to danger, and it was not possible to go outside the city limits, the park served as a kind of "balcony" of the city from which a beautiful view of the sea and the environment. The park was opened on September 16, 1829, and was built according to his own ideas by the then Governor of the Kingdom of Dalmatia, Baron Franz Ludwig von Welden - a passionate botanist, who was delighted with the Dalmatian flora and designed the park. He gave it the name City Park and handed it over for the comfort and care of the citizens. And at that moment, only he could make such a decision, because the park was built on the largest bastion of the Zadar fortress, even though the bastions were military facilities.
