Spring was in the air and the trees were at peak bloom. Turtle pond had many turtles to watch. Plants/trees were well marked so you could identify what you were looking at. Bulbs and spring bulbs were up and blooming as well in early April.

A Botanical Gardin located downtown is a difficult undertaking: surrounded by asphalted streets and high buildings, plants clearly struggle. Against these odds, the Zagreb Botanical Garden is doing a good job: large varieties of plants, well kept, carefully restored buildings from the Austrian period, and: FREE access. An oasis worth visiting!

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

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 :)
