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 was very looking forward to coming to Zagreb, especially because my mother travelled with me. My people found out everything about it, so that we could see the main stuff in the city!

I like Lisinski very much. It was very intense to perform there, because people came, listened carefully and felt the music in their hearts. Lisinski is a beautiful concert hall, and I am very honored to be performing there. I have wonderful memories of my first performance in Lisinski.

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.
