We were driving back ti Croatia and followed the signs to Miramar Castle.Didn't have enough time to walk around the gardens.The castle - they knew what good life is. Worth visiting and paying both entrance and parking.Come with time to see all that is there to be seen.

I wish I had spent the morning at the Revoltella museum instead. But we wanted a change of pace and some outdoors time.
