What a great place, not sure whether to call the largest botanical garden in Slovakia a "hidden gem" but this is a little hidden away if you are not aware of its existence.
Gardens are well presented and well looked after. There seems to be a number of projects taking place to open up the gardens more and introduce more informative aspects of horticulture to the visitor. Greenhouses are somewhat dated and the structures in need of some love, but the collections are very impressive. The University building will be undergoing some very much needed renovation over the next few years which will transform the look.
Entrance fee is very reasonable (a few € per person) so very good value for money. Take your lunch along if you want something to eat.
A very welcome contrast to the dominant architecture surroundings.

Some of the rabbits at the mini-zoo were put in individual hutches which were so small they could barely move... If the small space wasn't bad enough, it is winter and around 0 degrees celsius. This is way too cold for rabbits, and they had no place to hide or a house that was warmed. Tried to contact via email and Facebook afterwards, but no response...

Its Stunning inside the greenhouses with the cactuses and butterflies and just as beautiful outside with its streams and flowers. There is also a small farm and play area for little ones.

One of the most disappointing gardens we visited. Nothing special and doesn't worth the time and effort.

Great botanical garden, one of the best ones I've seen in central Europe. Right in the centre, the entrance is only 3€ for an adult and 1€ to be allowed to take pictures (they give you a pass).

The outside area could be a little more rich with flowers.

As a tip I would say that if you visit this place, make sure you have a bottle of water and very light clothing as the temperature in the greenhouses is unbelievably high and humid (to maintain exotic species).

I was wearing a jumper in April and felt like I'm gonna faint haha.

Amazing. Worth visit. Not only orchid exhibition, you can also see oldest tree in the world discovered in Australia not long ago. And they also have Mini Zoo in the park outside with domestic animals.
