Botanical Garden, Cluj-Napoca

4.3
At Botanical Garden, see the Amazonian water lilies--a lotus with gigantic leaves and white flowers--which turn pink as they mature. The garden supports three greenhouses with topical and sub-tropical species, a herbarium with over 635,000 plants, a museum, and an institute. In the Roman garden, look for archaeological ruins from the Roman colony of Napoca, including the statue of Ceres--the goddess of grain and bread. The Japanese garden, intersected by a brook, features a Japanese-style house. To visit Botanical Garden on your trip to Cluj-Napoca, use our Cluj-Napoca trip builder website .

  • Have been visiting this place since I was a child and it was exciting to bring my kid with me after he was born in another country. It's a great place to teach children about nature and it's a very relaxing place. A little more crowded than I remember, but they seem to have gotten more species of flowers as well. Cant wait to go back for rose season.
  • An amazing location, a very impressive botanical garden, a historical place to visit - it was founded in 1920, immediately after the great union from 1918. Here you may see and observe more than ten thousand species of plants and trees, very well done organized, arranged, classified, for sure! This garden is a patrimonial and historical objective and, no doubt, the managers made a lot of efforts to maintain this location on high standards! Wonderful design, incredible atmosphere, pleasant and warm people, very polite staff - you may walk there for hours and hours, it will be a great experience! Bravo!
