The Park of sculptures Dubrova is the favourite place for the citizens and visitors of Labin to take a walk, hang out with friends, for children to play, or to have an outdoor picnic. The park is located near Stancija Dubrova, next to the main road Pula – Rijeka inside where also is located the Franković-Lazzarini baroque palace.
As one of the most beautiful Croatian sculpture parks, it offers unique moments of art and nature in an open-air gallery, extending over more than 33 hectares of land, partly surrounded by drywall, with natural valleys and highlands, and a rich and varied Mediterranean flora.
The park is well-known for the International Sculpture Symposium, an event that since 1970, year after year, enriches the impressive collection of sculptures made in Istrian stone. The stone, as one of the most durable materials and the omnipresent element of the Mediterranean Sculpture Symposium, has become one of the symbols of Labin and the surrounding municipalities.
Inside the park, you can take a walk along the Bijela cesta (White Road), a trail that consists of 16 sections (each is 25 meters long), which were designed by renowned Croatian artists, such as Edo Murtić, Julije Knifer and Dušan Džamonja.
The Park is also home to the Amfiteatar “Dolac” (“Dolac” Amphitheatre), designed by sculptor Josip Diminić, who alongside Quintin Bassani, is one of the founders of The Mediterranean Sculpture Symposium. The Amphitheater represents a venue for art performances, concerts, theatre, and various events for visitors.
The Park of sculptures Dubrova is open to visitors all year round. The entrance is free and there are organized guided tours for groups with prior appointment.
