The project is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.
As one of the partners in the Vižula Archaeological Park project, the Kamenjak Public Institution was responsible for designing the ancient garden, which aimed to bring ancient everyday life closer to visitors through an outdoor exhibition of ancient plants. The purpose of the reconstruction of the ancient garden was to present and bring closer to visitors a part of history through nature and enrich the overall experience of the Vižula Archaeological Park with educational, scientific and historical contents. Together with other facilities, the ancient garden will contribute to the Vižula Archaeological Park becoming a tourism product that will attract visitors to the Medulin Municipality in the off-season as well.
In the ancient garden located in the southwest of the Vižula peninsula, on an area of 143 m2, only plants cultivated by the Romans were planted: the olive tree (Olea europaea), the common grape vine (Vitis vinifera), the boxwood (Buxus sempervirens), the common myrtle (Myrtus communis), bay laurel (Laurus nobilis), thyme (Thymus vulgaris), and the common marigold (Calendula officinalis). The garden is also home to oregano (Origanum vulgare), oleander (Nerium oleander), topped lavender (Lavandula stoechas), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), immortelle (Helichrysum stoechas), the rose (Rosa div. sp.), the almond (Prunus amygdalus) and the pomegranate tree (Punica granatum). Garden edging stones were also delivered and installed, and pebbles were laid on the surface of the ancient garden.
