Most significant park in the northeastern part of coastal Croatia
Known as Punta
Corrente, it is the most significant nature park in the northeastern
part of coastal Croatia. The park boasts around a thousand native
plant species but also many foreign ones. There are Himalayan cedars,
which were planted in the shape of a six-pointed star, as well as
cypress and pine tree alleys, and meadows surrounded by Douglas firs
and Italian pencil cypresses – they are all integral parts of this
impressive forest oasis.
History of Zlatni Rt
The cleaning up of the Golden Cape began in
the late 19th
century, owing to the efforts of Count Johann Georg Hütterott. His
wife’s pavilion is still there, in the forest, alongside the
gamekeeper’s house. There are also traces of a small boatyard, old
piers, a quarry, dry stone walls and a large wall on the edge of the
count’s estate. The Golden Cape was designated as a protected area
in 1948, and a forest park in 1961.
