Sažetak
Contingent valuation is a survey-based economic technique for the valuation of non-market resources, such as environmental preservation or the impact of contamination. It is also the only approach that can generally be used to include what is usually referred to as the passive use component of the economic value of environmental goods. The aim of the survey is to estimate the amount of money visitors are willing to pay (or willing to accept) to use nature’s resources in the arboretum Opeka in North-West Croatia. Opeka Arboretum is situated in the Vinica municipality in northern Croatia. Located in a large park surrounding a manor, Opeka arboretum, with its 65 hectares is the largest of the three arboretums existing today in Croatia (the others are Trsteno in southern Dalmatia and Lisičine near Voćin in western Slavonia). The arboretum was founded in 1860 by the Count Marko Bombelles. Readiness to pay for visitor’s use of the arboretum has been investigated using the contingency method on a sample of 53 respondents. Research results present high preference for arboretum benefits such as beauty of landscape, cultural and historical significance, recreation and health but low willingness to pay the maximum of 30 euros (215 kuna).
