Located in the center of Opatija, Park Sv. Jakov is a striking postcard of this beautiful city. Groomed green lawns and the harmony of colorful flowers are the perfect addition to the beautiful church of St. Jacob.
The park is adorned with an imposing neo-baroque fountain by the sculptor Hans Ratkausky, specific for the interesting sculpture of Helium and Selena, which in Greek mythology represent the sun god and the moon goddess. The park stretches all the way to the sea where it is home to numerous art exhibitions - the Juraj Shporer Art Pavilion.
