  • The University consists of many buildings, but interest is a complex of the former residence of the metropolitans of Bukovina and Dalmatia. A lot of information on the Internet about the construction and history of this complex, for this reason, it is very difficult to articulate information accidentally slip to plagiarism. Written by talented architect Josef Hlavka. His bust is set just outside the door leading into the Park University. University guides are well trained and conducting excursions. Recommend to visit.

  • Well just incredible architecture beauty! Admission is 20grn for the tourist entrance to the building is paid separately. For these 20grn you can walk to the campus and BOT Garden (back) All quiet and peaceful, not even to say that students here.
