The entrance to the Haludovo Palace Hotel in Malinska, Croatia. The mile-long Haludovo Palace hotel complex opened on 15 June 1972 to a huge fanfare. Built by Bob Guccione , of Penthouse Magazine, it had hanging gardens, lavish pools, expensive mid-century furniture, fountains and Penthouse ‘pets’ employed by the resort as hostesses. The complex was later privatized and run badly. Now all that is left of its former glory is a vandalised shell.
