  • Example of typical karst landscapes, built inside a SINKHOLE. This made it possible to reconstruct the karst habitats with hundreds of plants. Beautiful in the spring when many plants are flowering and the environment is rich in butterflies. Always a pleasure to visit with friendly staff. Also enter only costs 2-3 euro.

  • 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.
