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.

This is not a very large garden, but very pleasant to wander round and a great place to eat your sandwich on a nice sunny day. Being Autumn, the trees were particularly attractive with the different leaf colours.

I hope they do get the conservatory open someday. It has been closed for 100 years if I remember correctly. They said the remodel was supposed to be done in 2014 well as of 2016 it looks like the renovations hadn't started yet. The only glasshouse open to the public has lily pads in it, which are quite impressive! It... More

The garden was of modest size . There were many beds with some labeled plants . The building had some interesting details . In all it was not a must see place but of some interest

Great variety of plants and trees. Really enjoyed walk around it and sit down after exhausting city tour. Although, I felt a bit sad for the turtles in the dirty little pool.

Just minutes away from the heart of the city centre, there's no better way to spend an hour or two away from the asphalt jungle than strolling around the Botanical Gardens
