This nice villa was built in 1844 and completely renovated in 2000. Its first owner was Iginio Scarpa; a wealthy merchant from Rijeka. He gave the villa the name of his deceased wife.

The ground floor of the villa is open to visitors. It is a large room with beautiful paintings on the ceiling.

Around Villa Angiolina there is a park with about 159 plant species. There you'll see banana trees, bamboos and also various palms.

Fontana Helios and Selena is located in beautiful Opatija park opposite the Imperial hotel near the church of Sv. James.

The work of the sculptor Hans Rathautskog from Graz, by Madonna, and to Theodor Billroth.Fontana is a sun and moon, the personification of the mythological characters brother and sister.

Selena (Greek Selene) is a goddess and personification of the moon. Helios is Selena's brother. After he finishes his journey across the heavens, Selena takes his place. Both are personifications, Helios the Sun and Selena the Moon.
