Zagreb Botanical gardens are located in the centre of the lower town of Zagreb. The entrance to the park is free. The best time to visit Zagreb Botanical Gardens is in spring. At that time everything is in blossom and they take out the subtropical and tropical plants.
Gardens are regularly open to public from April to October. Botanical Gardens are protecting and cultivating indigenous plants since Croatia is one of the richest European countries in Biodiversity. Botanical Garden of the University of Zagreb is mainly a scientific institution. They devoted themselves to cultivating, researching and protecting Croatian indigenous plants. The beautiful garden has 10.000 species of plants and many peaceful paths and corners. Zagreb Botanical Gardens plant collections consist of: small collections of Mediterranean plants, native Croatian flora, alpine and mountain plants, shrubs and trees, aquatics, conifers, palms, cacti and other succulents, carnivorous, herbaceous and other plants. Garden was founded in 1889. It is covering an area of 5 hectares in the heart of Zagreb. The Arboretum makes the largest part of the Garden, not to mention it is styled as an English landscape garden.
The English style was devised during 17th and 18th century as a contrast to formality and strictness of the baroque gardens found by every castle in Europe. Across from the main entrance are growing the most primitive and the oldest plants with reals flowers, such as the members of the magnolia family. In the western part of the Garden, the flower parterre, you will find roses and decorative herbaceous plants. In contrast, it is constructed in the symmetrical and formal French style. Wild Croatia indigenous plants species may be seen in the Rock Gardens. Here you can buy the most rear Croatia's plant – endangered Velebit Degenia. There are also a total of 14 greenhouses which house subtropical and tropical plants. The greenhouses are usually not open to the public.
The Gardens take out as many plants as they can during the spring time. Marsh plants can bee seen in the artificial pools and lakes on the parterre. In the east is located a Red Pavillion. An information centre and exhibition area.
