Duke Johann Wilhelm von Sachsen-Eisenach had a large zoo set up as a hunting facility. An entrance to this zoo was located at the site of today’s Hohe Sonne. To protect the zoo from poachers, the hunter’s house, built in 1747, was next to the gate.
Hotel Marina Lučica opened in 1971, during the heyday of Yugoslavia’s popularity as a tourist destination. With over 700 rooms coupled with excellent facilities, the hotel was considered to be one of the most modern hotels along the Adriatic Coast.
