Botanical Garden in Zagreb was founded in 1889 when the botanist professor Antun Heinz made a blueprint after traveling around Europe and visiting the botanical gardens with the gardener Viteslav Durhanek. The oldest European botanical garden is in Pisa, founded in 1543, and the other gardens are dated back to the 16th and 17th centuries, where mostly medicinal herbs were grown. Only later they start growing and studying other plants. The botanical garden is an institution where the herb is cultivated, documented and studied. The botanical garden is, moreover, a kind of open-air museum, and museum exhibitions are alive and the task of each visitor is to respect that life, as well as the rules of conduct in the Botanical Garden. If you rent an apartment, room or vacation house in Zagreb, you will find this oasis of peace in the very center of the city, just over a kilometer walk from the main square. The entrance to the Botanical Garden is free and the working hours of the garden are from 9 am to 2 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays, from 9 to 19 other days, from early spring to late autumn. The Botanical Garden, like all other Zagreb parks that originate from the same period, is decorated in an English romantic style and has over 5,000 plant species, of which several hundred endemic and endangered ones. The position of the Garden in the center of the town was conditioned by a small area of only 4.5 hectares, so the way of planting was adapted to the dimensions of the Garden. Its size allows a large number of species to be seen in a short time - in passing through or in short breaks between tasks and plans in the city center. The botanical garden is protected as a monument of park architecture and the 3rd most visited attraction of the main Croatian town. The Botanical Garden's exhibition pavilion is a frequent host to workshops and plant exhibitions, and here can be often found the seedlings for our home. The Botanical Garden is the perfect excuse for the escape from the city crowd into the arms of a fragrant flora under the shadows of carefully groomed trees.
