Although it's a memory of a sad event, it's a nice statue. It suits perfectly well with the spirit of the latter days along the lungomare. I think Croatia has done a wonderful retuning of the Sissi period, adapted to modern comfort

The view is beautiful and there are many places to enjoy the beach or sit for a coffee. We walked around to see the statue and it is near to the gardens which are also lovely

Looking over the ocean is this wonderful sculpture. Close by a great hotel/restaurant. Nice to sit outside and enjoy a lunch or just cappuccino
