  • We have already visited a sufficient number of botanical gardens in Europe, so there is something to compare. Cozy, beautiful, with an observation deck and a pond. At the top of the garden for lovers - super. It is obligatory to visit in good summer weather.

  • Together with my flower-loving mother-in-law I spent a great day here. We walked through the diverse gardens and rested at the many rest areas and admired nature. The exhibition and the Touriseum have been very successful.

  • A lovely peaceful place where you can relax and explore the nature. There are many types of flowers and trees. You can also visit the bar for a little snack or an ice cream. There is also a special part of the garden for amorous with fountains, a little lake and many flowers. For young kids there is a little park where you can play with water and open or close little dams.
  • We had a wonderful day here. The park is big enough to spend all day long exploring it's gardens. Thanks to signs it is pretty clear which plants are to touch, smell or just to watch and there are a lot of them- from cactus to usual garden plants. The walkways are cleaned well and there are also attractions to have fun on your walk by or challenge your knowledge. All in all a great visit for both young and old
