  • Went here for my girlfriend's passion for plants and flowers, the staff told us many things about the flora of carso. Really very interesting! Recommended visit to all!

  • Overall, the visit to the garden experience was very satisfactory. Located in a quiet and well marked by signs. The welcome was excellent and we received a comprehensive introduction of the garden, its history and habitats reproduced within it. Very interesting also the first part of the visit on medicinal plants and aromatic present. We could see which environment reproduced, even though most of the blooms had now passed the garden still has a lot of charm. We will definitely return next spring to admire all the blooms.

  • In a relatively small area you can find more than 500 plant species collected in macroambienti: from the woods of dolina, the Karst, to the scree and the Bush i.e all sorts of natural environments found in nature. With care and wisdom have been reproduced all species and explained passionately during visits. The cost of the visit is to do 3 euros per adult and you manage to pass a few hours observing and appreciating the biodiversity that mother nature has given us.
