Botanical Garden

The gardens are located on Mihanovićeva, named after the author of Croatia’s national anthem Lijepa naša domovino (“Our Beautiful Homeland”), Antun Mihanović.

Running parallel to the railway tracks, the Botanical Gardens form the southern part of the green belt known as Lenuci’s Horseshoe.

Every spring since the late 19th century the gardens have opened their gates to the public. Pride of the gardens is the collection of 5,000 or more plant species, ranging from exotic imports to indigenous Croatian plants.

The gardens are open until sundown and entrance is free of charge, but there are strict rules governing behaviour. It is forbidden to walk on the grass, shout, ride a bicycle or pick flowers.

The greenery, the wonderful scents and a general sense of peace constitute a true oasis in the centre of the city. 

Opening hours: 

Monday and Tuesday 9am - 2:30pm

Wednesday - Sunday 9am - 7pm

Important: During this season, due to construction works, occasional limitation of
access to certain parts of the Garden is possible.

I am looking forward to Zagreb as a destination where I always feel good. It seems it has been too long since the last time I was here, although it was just a year or so.
