Photographer's Note

Considered by many the most romantic park in Osijek was planted in the second half of the 19th century. Park was named after the statue of Sakuntala, a girl from Indian mythology who lived in harmony with nature. The statue was a gift from the city of Berlin and the myth comes from the epic poetry of Sakuntala written by the Indian poet Kalidasa from the 5th century. In the park among the colourful flower beams there are busts (sculptural three-dimensional view of the upper part of the human body) of four well-known people from Osijek from the 19th century, Pajo Kolarić the folk musician, Hugo Conrad von Hötzendorf the painter, Adolf Waldinger the painter and Franjo Kuhač the folk musician according to whom the musical school was named. Facing the main facade of the Urania cinema in the park there are two statues of sphinxes for whom will imaginative fellow citizens say that they are "the guardians" of the Masonic temple dedicated to the ancient Greek muse Urania.
