Lush

 

lush park

Here’s another look at the gorgeous park of Miramare Castle. It is quite big, about 22 hectares, and it was designed at the request of the Archduke Maximilian. Because the area overlooking the Adriatic Sea is so rocky and karst, the archduke brought large quantities of soil from Styria and Carinthia so that the rich variety of tree and shrub species, many from abroad, could survive the harsh winters. A century and a half later, the park is still gorgeous and filled with lush plants.
