You wouldn't exactly think of a grand botanical garden being in Zagreb, but this really is a beautiful attraction that gets overlooked. Zagreb stands to be on par as the "next Budapest" with similar architecture and style. Get here while you can enjoy some peace and quiet! The garden is easy walking distance from the main train station, and once... More

This garden is beautiful, unfortunately it is quite hidden and outside the tourist movement. It contains almost all the plants that live in the area of the central Croatian

The Zagreb Botanical Garden is a beautiful garden right in the heart of the city. A couple of hours spent in this verdant garden, which houses a variety of plant species, can be very relaxing indeed! Entry is free and it is an easy walk from Ban Jelacic Square. Do take out some time to visit the place, It is... More

In the summer time it is one of the rare places where you can find peace and shade. Free entrance with a lot benches to rest and plenty of trees to give a refreshment from a hot sun. You need about 2 hours to walk through the garden and enjoy the flowers and other plants. In the near vicinity there... More

I very much enjoyed my time spent in the gardens which are very well-kept and organised. Within the city centre, these gardens provide the traveller with a 'breath of fresh air'. Highly recommended.

There are around 10,000 species in there. Very lovely space to go and feel one with nature and see plenty of plants.

If you have a spare time in Zagreb I think its the best solution. It's like a fresh breath in the city with so many plants and trees. Free entrance :)

If you want to run away from the loud and noisy streets of Zagreb - it is the nice place! Completely free, but quite cosy ;) however, the best view and experience is from end of spring till start of autumn :))

Most beautiful walk through the nature in the heart of the city - visit Zagreb's botanical garden, in spring, then in summer and funally in autumn. See different life blooming in different seasons, cross the bridge and observe the turtles, see what will be planted next... Take a short walk or spend hours in there, it's beautiful, educational and fun.

A beautiful green garden in the down town area of the city. Visit can be educational (countless species of plant are just waiting to be discovered), but also romantic. It is worthy to mention that the entrance is free! Highly recommended!
