THE OLDEST PALM IN OPATIJA

Villa Ariston was constructed in 1908 under the leadership of the baroness Hedwiga von Haas-Teichen. The Villa has been renovated several times, while its image today was achieved by the renovations made in the period between 1915 and 1924 by Viennese-Opatija’s architect Carl Siedl, who converted it into a Mediterranean gem emerging from the rocks above the sea. The huge garden was then converted into an English style silent promenade, and in front of the Villa, the oldest palm in Opatija, according to some, can still be found.

The interior of the Villa has been almost completely preserved. The walls are decorated with paintings made by the Dutch maestros with portraits of the baroness Hedwiga, representations of battles and Lombard still life from the 17th century. At the entrance, inside the Villa, a sample of ancient sculpture can be found, a replica of Auriga of Delphi. The venue is perfect for outdoor events next to the sea or private meetings.
