Hrvatski dvorci


Veliki Bukovec had large grounds covering about 27 acres. The park was started in the middle of the eighteenth century after the manor was built. In the first phase a formal baroque parterre garden was probably planted in front of the eastern front. The remainder was laid out later, and the park got its final appearance at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Part of it included the existing forest of common oak (Quercus robur) with hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), ash (Fraxinus americana), common maple (Acer campestre), silver-leaf poplar (Populus alba) and common elm (Ulmus minor), and part of it was meadows. The forest mostly grew along the edges of the park and the central part was covered by meadows with various exotic and indigenous species. This was an English park, and only a small part in front of the house (4,350 square metres) was an ornamental baroque garden. The park had a lake with two islands, whose water was channelled from a backwater of the Bednja. Besides the trees already mentioned, the park also had exotic species, for example red cedar (Juniperus virginiana), Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), common baldcypress (Taxodium distichum), horse-chestnut (Aesculus hippocastercum), common catalpa (Catalpa bignonioides), honey-locust (Gleditsia triacanthos), tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) etc. The only remaining items of garden architecture are part of the entrance portal, part of the wall in the north-west of the park and remains of bridges. The court front of the manor and the estate buildings still have wooden espaliers attached to the facade that served for climbing plants and vines.
